Five-year-old mare Act Of Aggression claimed the Yea Cup (2140m) for Andrew Dale Racing yesterday.
In her fourth start under Dale, the bay mare by Declaration Of War relished the rise in distance to the 2140m claiming the day’s feature race.
Rider Shaun Cooper stalked a frantic tempo set in the early and middle stages, before upping the speed at the hill and putting a definitive margin on the field.
In the finish it was Act Of Aggression by two and a quarter lengths in a time of 2.12.89 for the 2140m journey.
The recent addition was purchased for $600 at the 2021 October Late Inglis Digital sale by Luke O’Connor and Andrew Dale Racing.
