Malavio has emerged on top in the Group 3 Tramway Handicap, which took place at Royal Randwick Racecourse last Saturday September 7, 2013.
The five-year-old won the race by a nose ahead of Bello, who placed second, and Royal Descent,who flew home for third place.
Malavio has won nine of his 21 race starts and has earned more than $371,000 in prize money during his horse racing career.
The Snitzel gelding was second-up in the 2013 Tramway Handicap, which is also known as the Tramway Stakes, after placing fourth in the Group 3 Show County Quality at Warwick Farm last month.
Malavio was ridden by jockey Nathan Berry in the 2013 Tramway Handicap, who was thrilled with the win.
”It’s just an unbelievable feeling to ride of a couple of Group winners in two weeks and it’s holding me in good stead for the carnival,” Berry said.
“I ride him a lot in his work and he’s one of my favourite horses.
“We had a plan today to get horse into a good rhythm and I did that down the side and we got some very cheap sectionals and that proved in the finish.”
Malavio was paying long odds of $17 to win the 2013 Tramway Handicap at Ladbrokes.com.au.
