Aiden De Campo’s four-year-old Major Corrida displayed a solid turn of foot in the home straight to claim Friday’s Tabtouch Pace (2100m) at Donaldson Park. The Capel-based Bay horse, who sat four back on the pegs at the bell, scored by 4.1m from All Aussie Mach, while Stride Like A Star ran third. Driven by Emily Johnson, Major Corrida was forced to dig deep for most of the journey, with his four-deep position in the moving line less than ideal. However, Johnson’s resilience levels never waned — and midway down the back straight, she elected to push the button on De Campo’s four-year-old. Bolding exiting congestion into the breeze, Major Corrida peeled three-wide, with Johnson enticing him to challenge those wrestling for supremacy out in front. This pace proved telling in the home straight, as the four-year-old bolted clear with less than 100m to run and record his first victory since February 5. Earlier in the afternoon, Bob Mellsop’s hotshot mare Special Lady swiftly responded from her 11th at Gloucester Park on April 12 to claim the Nexus Pace (2100m) by 3.3m over State Of Heaven. The victory, which was her sixth, means the Mellsop stable-product has won or placed in 10 of her 12 career starts.
