Lockdown Day 61 – Snap Puzzle

Poster Potomac on the button!

Poster Potomac was the first to name Classic Hero with Rene Bonham up winning the 1994 Silver Bowl at Newmarket in yesterday’s puzzle poser.

The race report states that Mike de Kock followed up his IGN Gold Bowl success with the Liloy gelding Classic Hero, who showed his rivals a clean pair of heels in the R60 000 IGN Silver Bowl over 3200m at Newmarket on 27 September.

Steady support saw Classic Hero’s price cut from 3-1 to 22-10 and he joined David Payne’s New Zealand-bred gelding Great White Way at the top of the boards. The only other runner in the 16-horse field quoted in single figures was How High The Moon.  Outsider Cadiz opened up a 70 length lead entering the home straight, but soon cried enough as Classic Hero, who had raced second throughout, skipped clear at the 400m.

The result was never in doubt as Classic Hero powered home with daylight to spare. How High The Moon finished best of the remainder for second ahead of Fantasy Warrior. The race was sadly marred by the breaking down of joint favourite Great White Way (NZ) who suffered a compound fracture of his near fore cannon at the 200m post and had to be destroyed.

Today’s puzzle pic – can you identify it?

The answer will be published on Wednesday morning.
