SOUTH African Sean Cormack rode a powerful finish on trainer Gary Duncan’s runner Wapiti (Love Conquers All) to win Saturday’s Gr3 Wind Guineas at Sunshine Coast Racecourse in Queensland, Australia.

Wapiti, a strong public fancy at $2.50 a win, led the field into the turn and kept running well. He was headed in the last 100m by the favourite Knight Mariner, but the 49-year-old Cormack coaxed a little extra from his mount, who rallied again to win it.

The Winx Guineas was formerly known as the Sunshine Coast Guineas but has been re-named to honour Winx after it was the race which marked her first win in her 33-race winning sequence.
