Hvasstan Is 2012 Norman Robinson Stakes Winner – Results

October 23rd, 2012

Hvasstan has won the 2012 Norman Robinson Stakes, which was run at Caulfield Racecourse last Saturday October 20, 2012.

The three-year-old won the race by a nose ahead of Honorius, who finished second, and Electric Fusion, who finished in third.

Hvasstan has now won three of his six race starts and has earned more than $175,000 in prize money during his short horse racing career.

The race win was an emotional affair for trainer Peter Gelagotis, who lost his father earlier in the week.

Gelagotis spoke about his late father after the race was run.

“He loved his racing and … he’s given us the biggest start you could ever wish for and I hope we can carry on his hard work,” he said.

“We were very passionate sportsmen and we’ve brought that style to our racing.

“We wear our heart on our sleeve and we’re not embarrassed to show our emotion.”

Jockey Glen Boss also dedicated Hvasstan’s 2012 Norman Robinson Stakes win to Mick Gelagotis.

“He has gone from being a horse that has no idea what he was doing and he is getting it now,” Boss said.

“In the run he was very good and he took a very small gap which he wouldn’t have done a month ago, but that’s for Mick (Gelagotis) because he rode it better than I did.”
