7/5/2018 Two for Ellerton - Zahra in SA Derby

Flemington trainers Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra are expected to have two runners in Saturday’s South Australian Derby (Gr 1, 2500m). Jockey Andrew Mallyon is expected to maintain his association with last-start Chairman’s Stakes (Gr 3, 2035m) runner up High N Dry (High Chaparral), while stablemate Into Rio (Zacinto) heads into the Group One race on the back of a win at Pakenham on the synthetic surface over 2200 metres on 26 April. The last-start VRC St Leger (Listed, 2800m) winner Runaway (Manhattan Rain), who is trained by Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott, is also set to take his place in the South Australian Derby.
