It was no wonder the group of owners of Eightways almost cheered off the grandstand roof after he treated his rivals with contempt at Moonee Valley last Friday night. Afterall, for some of them, it was their first city success. Eightways was bred by Austin Gant, who races the gelding with his sons Peter and John, Barry O'Sullivan, Colin Ryan, Carol Allen and Allen Linguey, his son Gavin and daughter-in-law Julie. Eightways, who appreciated the very hectic pace in the early stages, settled well back before unleashing his burst out wide coming to the turn. He quickly established a winning break suggesting he will have little trouble handling the extra distance of his next run over 3000m at the Valley on Sunday week.
