An explosive display of barrier speed set up the race for Agitate (pictured, Dan Costello Racing) to lead all the way to win the Listed $100,000 Channel Seven Mick Dittman Plate (1110m) at Doomben on Saturday.
The 3yo, by Lyndhurst Stud sire Sequalo, exploded from the barriers to set up a three lengths leads within fifty metres before rider Damian Browne restrained the three year old at the first turn.

It capped off another good weekend for Lyndhurst Stud after Hidden Dragon recorded yet another winner in Singapore.

Cradle Me capped off a winning weekend for Watlle Brae Stud
Cradle Me (pictured, Bradley photography) settled last but swamped her rivals in the straight to win the Wilson Asset Management Handicap (1100m).
In a measure of just how well Cradle Me finished, the final 600m sectional was an official 34.50 seconds, meaning she broke 34sec in her last-to-first sprint.
