Pumpkin Pie has overcome the widest barrier to win the second regional heat of the Country Championship at Goulburn.
The Danny Williams-trained filly has now joined Grafton heat winner Perfect Dare at the top of the market for the $400,000 Final at Randwick on April 1..
The two are at $4.60 after both were $11 before their wins.
Jay Ford was positive on Pumpkin Pie and steered her over from the outside to take up the running on Saturday.
The $2.20 favourite beat Steel Frost from the Anne-Marie Ruttley stable by 1-1/2 lengths with both qualifying for the final.
The series moves to Dubbo on Sunday.No tags for this post.
