Uxorious has produced a spectacular win in the 2011 Spring Stakes at Morphettville last Saturday August 6, 2011.
The six-year-old gelding won the $115,000 Spring Stakes by two lengths ahead of Periduki, who finished in second, and Valentine Miss, who finished in third.
It was the first Group level horse racing win for Uxorious’ trainer Matthew Williams.
“A Listed win was the best I had previously, so a Group 3 is fantastic,” Williams said.
“We were pretty confident he was going to win the Bletchingly, so we were pretty disappointed (we had to scratch him), but this makes up for it.”
Williams will now target Uxorious at the 2011 Listed Testa Rossa Stakes on Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes Day on September 24, 2011.
“We’ll probably go to the Testa Rossa, He has a lot of issues, so you’ve just got to work around them,” Williams said.
The 2011 Spring Stakes was won by Uxorious in a time of 1 minute and 13.66 seconds.
