Wild Geese takes pole position in Barrier One for $1.15-million Emirates Singapore Derby

Trainer Steven Burridge had the luck of the draw at the Emirates Singapore Derby post position when he drew barrier No.1 for Wild Geese - one of three horses he has lined up for Sunday's $1.15 million Group One race.

Said the Australian handler: "We needed to draw well and we did. We are very happy and hopefully from (Barrier One) he will have a good race."

Barrier One is considered an advantageous position as it is the shortest distance to the first bend in the 2,000m race at the Singapore Turf Club in Kranji.

Burridge drew barriers No.11 and No.9 respectively for his other two competitors Darien Gap and Over Easy (Emergency Acceptor). Race favourite Better Life, trained by Hideyuki Takaoka will start from barrier No.2.
