Revengeful, trained by Port Lincoln trainer Simon Drewitt, turned the tables on Thevenard Cup foe New Wave to take out the Ceduna Foreshore Hotel Ceduna Cup on Saturday.
Revengeful produced a tough as nails run to win the $12,000 race over 1600 metres in the first West Coast race meet of 2018.
It was a case of revenge as Revengeful got one over New Wave, who won the Thevenard Cup in December ahead of Revengeful, who finished second.
This time around it was New Wave who ran second but not before the two horses – along with Onward – were involved in a three-way tussle from the outset of the race.
The main event turned out to be a tough race, with Revengeful caught among the battle for much of it and you could have forgiven the Simon Drewitt-trained galloper if the towel had been thrown in.
However, in the final stages it was Revengeful who proved too strong for the pack to cross the line, giving promising Adelaide apprentice jockey Alice Lindsay another win in her short career.
New Wave fought hard all the way in finishing second, while A Chiller battled on to take third place.
The victory for Revengeful also wrapped up the coveted jockey of the year award for Lindsay, who also rode the winner of race one, Artful Dreamweaver.
