2013 SA Chairman's Stakes
Up-and-coming stayer Hioctdane went on to win this race by nearly five lengths, a feat made even more impressive given the three-year-old didn't enjoy the best of runs during this 2000 metre event. After settling midfield, Hioctdane was trapped three wide and stuck in traffic but once he was hooked into the clear by jockey Paul Gatt, and asked for extra effort coming round the turn, the result was inevitable. Hioctdane was still full of running, blasting clear of the rest of the field and going on to claim a very easy yet meritorius victory. Pharomac and Pins Of Pele were a long way back in rounding out the top three places.
