‘La Woyoo’, came from behind to outrun the pacesetters at the home stretch. Just as the pack was about 20 metres to the finishing post, ‘La Woyoo’ shot ahead from the lot to run past the finishing post.

Coconut Glover, also from the Coconut Grove Resort stable, placed third on their second day of running at the Turf.
