PGG Wrightson NZ Yearling Sales 2yo Open Final

Always a fabulous race to watch the 2yo open final and again, did we have a race on our hands here. Smooth Deal for owner Jean Feiss looking the likely winner but there was a new horse to the ranks whom was unbeaten looking to change this, One Change. One of the tightest finishes I have seen but One Change pipped Smooth Deal on the line, coming from well back in a 55.9 quarter which is seldomly done in those times. This was now 3 from 3 for One Change and it has won each race by only a nose! This horse has really surprised the trainers, as initially they weren’t a big fan, but he really has put it together race day and for the connections Allstars Racing Stables Limited, M R Woodlock and T Casey they couldn’t be happier.
