Friday Night Lights for Royal Scandal!

Sprinting mare Royal Scandal made it a day to remember late in the night after scoring in the last race on the card at Moonee Valley last Friday night.

Royal Scandal made it a double for Cloud 9 Thoroughbreds on the day after Ebony Eyes bolted in the 5th race at Tatura earlier in the day.

5 weeks in between runs was the recipe to success for the mare by Hard Spun as she recorded a dominant victory. Given a gun ride by Katelyn Mallyon, Royal Scandal sat 4th on the fence behind the leading pair before angling out at the top of the home straight and turning on the after burners. A little wobbly and wanting to lay in over the last 100m, Katelyn balanced her back up and she went on to win comfortably by just on half a length.

This takes Royal Scandal to 4 wins from 16 starts and ever so close to breaking the $100,000 in prizemoney earned. It also keeps the hot streak going for in-form hoop Mallyon as she records yet another winner for the Cloud 9 Team.
