Run of the Month - October 2020

The Run of the Month for October was also Golden Night for trainer Troy Murray with his brilliant win in the Group 1 Adelaide Cup at Angle Park on Friday, 9th October. 

As the start was affected he stayed close on the heels of race favourite Catch The Thief from box 2. Down the back straight Golden Night moved to third as he chased hard and then quickly moved to second off the back straight to chase out after Catch The Thief. The two gun chasers settling down to fight out the Adelaide Cup as they turned for home and it was Golden Night who poked his nose in front right on the line to take the Group 1 feature in a flying 29.55. By winning the Group 1 he also booked his spot in the Group 1 Topgun at the Meadows in November.
