Kidnapped, trained by Peter Snowden, won the illustrious $300,000 Group 1 South Australian Derby (2500m) on Sunday in what was a nail-biting win.
Held at the Morphettville Racecourse, the 2010 South Australian Derby was the headlining event of eight races, and saw 16 three-years-olds form the line up for what was a thrilling race on the track.
Starting from the widest barrier, Kidnapped saw Kerrin McEvoy aboard in his home town, and while controversy was abound off the track, McEvoy ascertained himself as the internationally renowned jockey that he is by riding the gelding to the jockey’s first premier event win in Adelaide.
The 2010 South Australian Derby winner will now head to the paddock, with no Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival on his schedule.
Kidnapped, trained by Peter Snowden, won on Sunday in what was a nail-biting win.
Runner up on Sunday was Red Colossus. The Greg Eurell-trained gelding was favourite heading into the race, and lost out by a long head after maintaining form alongside Kidnapped through the final 300 metres.
Half a length behind the pre-race favourite was Sea Galleon in third position, while Bint Maher was fourth.
Also taking place on Sunday alongside the 2010 South Australian Derby was the Group 1 Goodwood Handicap (1200m), the Group 3 Auraria Stakes (1800m) and the Group 3 RA Lee Stakes (1600m).
