SYDNEY- SMOOTH SATIN
Kiwis stayed away in their droves from the Sydney Inter-Doms but it didnít stop the top horses putting on a regal show. The cream quickly rose to the top during the heats with Shakamaker, Courage Under Fire, Stars And Stripes and Smooth Satin winning all 10 heats between them. The final was billed as a Courage Under Fire-Shakamaker match race but as is so often the case, these donít eventuate. Smooth Satin stole the show and the ĎBathurst Bulletí won for his trainer/driver Steve Turnbull. The win rekindled memories of another Bathurst great Hondo Grattan who won back-to-back Inter-Doms for Turnbullís father Tony in the early 70s.
