A perfect steer from Jockey Matthew McGillivray has assisted Invincible Gangsta land a comprehensive victory at Eagle Farm, today.
Having finished a narrow and unlucky second at his previous start, punters were confident the 5 year old gelding could go one better, supporting him strongly in the markets.
Jumping well in the BM85 (1000m), McGillivray was able to position the son of I Am Invincible behind the leading pair.
Under a good hold as the field turned for home, all that was required in the straight was clear running and that opportunity arose at the 200m when a gap opened between the leading pair.
Showing a neat turn of foot, Invincible Gangsta shot through to hit the lead at the 150m and quickly put a margin on his competition, finally crossing the line with two and a half lengths to spare.
It was Invicible Gangsta’s fourth career win, taking his career earnings past $150,000.00
