It was the Ballarat galloper’s second Southeast feature in 2017 as the Mount Gambier Racing Club prepares for a $3.3 million track redevelopment over the next 18 months. Ridden forward to hold the lead from his inside barrier, Survived always travelled like a winner before booting clear around the dog-leg turn to record an easy 4.9-length win. Alexander is one trainer hoping the unique turn at Mt Gambier remains a part of future plans. “He breaks their hearts (on the home turn) and by the time they get around the dog leg it’s too late, they can’t get to him,’’ Alexander said.

He’s a nightmare to train. “He picks and chooses what days he shows up but when he comes here there is something in the air, he just loves it. Survived has achieved a rare feat, winning his third Mt Gambier Cup in 18 months before the racecourse undergoes a redevelopment.Source:Getty Images “He’s just so tough.
