College Chapel stars in Crown

College Chapel stars in Crown

College Chapel produced yet another stunning performance to win the Group 1 Bathurst Gold Crown at Bathurst on Saturday night.

The son of Mach Three was coming into the race with a three race win streak and thus started an odd on favourite.

Finding the front during an amazing 26.4 first quarter, College Chapel ran his rivals a merry dance and was able to sprint home in 27.9 and 28.9 to win by 1.8 metres in a new race record of 1:54.5.

Sons of Art Major, Abouttime and Animal, filled the placings to make it an Alabar sired trifecta.

College Chapel has now had five starts for four wins and is displaying the type of raw talent that only exceptional two year olds exhibit.

Bred and raced by Gary and Margaret Meredith, College Chapel is out of the Village Jasper mare Meljoy, who in turn is out of the Australian broodmare of the year Intrude.
