THE DELPHI BREAKS THROUGH AT SALE

We had two runners in the race and The Delphi and Lofty Heights fought out the finish at Sale on Sunday with The Delphi getting the narrow verdict.

Lofty Heights looked set to win when he edged clear inside the final 200m however, Jason Benbow rallied The Delphi and Lofty Heights rolled around under pressure and at the finish The Delphi landed the Maiden Plate (1717m) by a short half head.

Benbow said he was unsure about the result.

“I wasn’t sure when we hit the line and I said to Patrick ‘I think you got it’ but I’m happy to be wrong,” Benbow said.

“My horse was there to be beaten but It’s been a big effort from Mike and the team to have him here fit enough to run out a strong 1700.

“Both horses have run well and I'm just glad I got the result.”

A four-year-old son of Makfi, The Delphi was purchased as a yearling by Paul Moroney at the 2016 NZB Premier sale for $140,000.
