Dreamtime Vision avoids hustle and bustle to take unlikely win | Video

SOMETIMES you just get lucky.

Dreamtime Vision ($9.40) looked certain to finish mid-field in Monday’s Race Sponsorships Available Stakes (307 metres) before the misfortune of others handed her a victory.

Gordon Herbert’s bitch was travelling fifth before disaster struck race favourite My Dixie.

My Dixie had got out fairly from box one but not enough to take a clear lead.

She was joined by Bonnie O’Reilly, Gotta Be Penny and Smylee Doll on her outside coming into the turn for home.

Something had to give with a wall of four runners trying to navigate the left bend.

Dreamtime Vision sat a length away from that group, and that small gap would prove vital.

Dreamtime Vision's unlikely win at Kennerson Park

My Dixie fell and in the process pushed the three other challengers wide.

That cleared a path for Dreamtime Vision to burst through along the rail and steal an unlikely victory.

It was a welcome turnaround for Herbert who had watched Dreamtime Vision have her own stroke of misfortune at Kennerson Park.

“It was a bit rough on that first corner but she got out of it alright and was a bit lucky. I’ll take it,” he said.

“She raced here two starts ago. She ran a good second after a bit of interference shortly after the boxes.

“She ran that race out alright so I thought if she had a bit of luck today she’d be a place chance.”

The winning time was 18.16 seconds.

Richard Board’s Bonnie O’Reilly ($4.10) and Gotta Be Penny ($8.10) filled the minor placings.
