Despite being drawn an awakward barrier 6, EASY EDDIE leapt his way to the front half of the pack and settled on the pace before kicking away and winning race 7 by 3.8 lengths under the encouragement of top jockey, Kerrin McEvoy.

In spite of only ever trialling on soft ground once previously, EASY EDDIE, aka Murphy, took it all in his stride and relished the slight give in the track.

'Murphy' is a firm stable favourite amongst both the riders and the ground staff, he has a great attitude and is a sweetheart to be around. So far, 'Murphy' has won $143,600 in prize money, making him a favourite with his owners too!
