Excess Wins Inglis Funds 

 

Exciting 3YO Excess Funds (Rubick) successfully completed a long-term plan for his trainer Levi Kavanagh when he won Saturday’s $500,000 Inglis Dash (1100m) at Caulfield.

“It’s not often a plan comes off, but I targeted this race a long way out and it worked out perfectly today,’’ Levi said.

Ridden to perfection by champion jockey Hugh Bowman, Excess Funds raced a little wide midfield in the early stages, but he slid forward and then pounced to the lead inside the final 200 metres defeating favourites Wayupinthesky and Excused.

Owners and fans were not allowed on course on Saturday, but that didn’t stop his owners from celebrating! Some of the owners cheered him on from Hamilton Island, others Port Lincoln, whilst others enjoyed the afternoon at The Nixon Hotel at the Docklands.  

Excess Funds made it two wins from three starts this preparation and Levi praised the efforts of everyone involved.

 “A big thanks to the team back home, it’s a huge boost to the stable.

“We’ve got a lot of friends and family and good clients involved in him so it’s great for everybody.

There's more to come for the winner of about $650,000 in stakes from just 10 starts, Levi indicating that he will progress to Adelaide next for Stakes races next month.

“I wanted to have him ready for this race and now we’ll probably head to Adelaide for the carnival, there’s some nice 3YO races there.’’

Kavanagh Racing purchased Excess Funds (pictured) for $85,000 at the 2018 Classic Yearling Sale, where he was offered by Moobi Farm.
