Theseo and Bank Robber return to scale after running 1st and 2nd in the 2008 Group 1 Epsom Handicap at Randwick
As THESEO owner Philip Evans said as he was waiting to depart Sydney on his way home to Queenstown in Tasmania, "Thank you for making the fairytale come true." No doubt all of the owners of THESEO echo those sentiments. On a day when emotions were running high, two of our Star perfomers THESEO and BANK ROBBER fought out the finish of the 2008 Group 1 Epsom Handicap......... First and Second.... a quinella to remember for a lifetime.
The purple and white stars colours synonymous with our Star Thoroughbred's horses charging to the line locked together, with the more experienced THESEO racing to victory by a length and a quarter. CONGRATULATIONS to all the connections of THESEO and BANK ROBBER.
THESEO will now head south for the WS COX PLATE.
