Oh so close for Soosa Rama at Bendigo

Sep 24, 2014

Promising mare Soosa Rama headed to Bendigo today for the running of the Showcase BM78 Handicap (1100 METRES).  With Mark Zahra in the saddle, the stable was confident of a good showing and so were a few others as she ended up starting the favourite in a strong field. Drawing barrier 2, Mark had her on the fence towards the rear under a good hold. Nearing the turn he made good ground along the fence, only having to go around one horse, then challenged the leader half way down the straight. Going head to head until the post she went down by the barest of margins. It was a strong run with plenty of promise for her connections as she heads to her next start.
