Tara Madgwick - Tuesday November 7

Trained by Grant and Alana Williams and ridden by Willie Pike, Keshi Boom won on debut at Belmont in July before having a break during the winter and resuming to win over 1000m at Northam last month.

Stepped out to 1400m, Keshi Boom settled back in the field and when angled into the clear was able to charge home and beat Super Smink by a length and a half running away.
