Given a great drive by Shane Graham, Catcha Lefty began from barrier two but was able to hook back in behind the leader and race favourite Iceenothink.

Waiting patiently for the sprint lane to present itself, the son of Village Jasper sprinted powerfully to fly home up the inside and claim victory.

This was Catcha Lefty's 13th win from 26 starts and takes his earnings to $168,523.

The win was a triumph for Cristina Monte.

Cristina owns and trains Catcha Lefty whom she also bred from her outstanding Fake Left broodmare Lefty.

On the racetrack Lefty was a stakes winner and at stud she has been nothing short of sensational.

Producing 11 foals, everyone of them has won and nine have done so in sub 2:00!
