FoxwedgeSent out a short priced favourite for the Benchmark 79 event over 1400 metres, the John Thompson trained Into the Abyss always looked the horse to beat and strode clear to win by two lengths.

Stakes placed four times at two and three, Into the Abyss has won over $200,000 in prizemoney and can surely find a stakes race to win somewhere this season.

A $240,000 Magic Millions purchase for DGR Thoroughbreds from the Vinery Stud draft, Into the Abyss is a full sister to stakes-placed Aghna from Group III placed Encosta de Lago mare Moonboat.
