Sertorius has won the Group 2 Zipping Classic at Caulfield Racecourse last Saturday November 16, 2013.
The zix-year-old won the race by two lengths ahead of Epingle, who placed second, and Queenstown, who passed the post in third position.
Sertorius has now won nine of his 25 race starts and has earned more than $794,000 in prize money during his horse racing career.
Trainer Jamie Edwardswas over the moon with Sertorius’ 2013 Zipping Classic victory.
”We have had a tough time the last 12 months but this has topped it off really good,” Edwards said.
“He deserves to be put away and we will have to raise out sights for him for the Autumn.”
Sertorius was ridden by jockey James Maloney in the 2013 Zipping Classic.
”They keep raising the bar and he keeps answering the challenge,” Maloney said.
Sertorius won the Listed Bendigo Cup two starts back, before placing a close second to Precedence in the Group 3 Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Flemington on November 9, 2013.
The Galileo gelding has only placed outside the top two on one occasion in his six-start spring campaign, when sixth in the Group 3 Bobbie Lewis Handicap first-up on September 7.
