Playing God May Lead The Pack In 2013 Kingston Town Classic

December 6th, 2013

Playing God will be looking to win his third Kingston Town Classic when he lines up for the race at Ascot Racecourse tomorrow December 7, 2013.

The six-year-old may well end up leading the race as he attempts to claim an historic win according to owner Colin Loxton.

“A lot of people think God Has Spoken will lead, but if he was to lead he can then over race and that is no good for him,” Loxton said.

“The problem is all of the runners want to sit midfield and if that happens and they all go slow, who wins?

“Playing God has the sectional speed to coast along and Paul Harvey is not frightened to take up the initiative.

“If they give him several lengths on the corner, they are not going to be able to run a fast enough sectional to get over him.”

Paul Harvey has been given the ride after regular jockey Steven Parnham decided to stay aboard Ihtsahymn for the 2013 Kingston Town Classic.

“It’s the toughest decision of my racing career to get off Playing God,” Parnham said.

“He’s been my best winner and has given me the opportunity to ride in top Melbourne carnival races.

“But Ihtsahymn is a very good three-year-old who continues to improve. He’ll have a big advantage with only 52kg on Saturday.”

Playing God has won eight of his 40 race starts and has earned more than $1.59 million in prize money during his career.
