Connections at Lockwood Racing didn’t have to wait for Christmas to start celebrating, with the stable preparing five winners from 22 starters during December.

Surprise Bullet, Naked, Doss and Fiery Heights all greeted the judge – with Surprise Bullet putting back-to-back wins and forming the first back of a city winning double on the 22nd December.

The run of success continued on New Year’s Day with Antigone recording a victory at Beaudesert.

Ridden by Jimmy Orman, Antigone led all the way and won comfortably, much to the delight of the punters who drove her price from $4.8 into $3.1.
