Vandyke on Saturday's dramatic dash to the Gold Coast with Alligator Blood

Trainer David Vandyke joined Sky Racing on Sunday to talk about Saturday's incredible situation which almost saw his three-year-old All Too Hard gelding Alligator Blood almost miss reaching the Gold Coast Racecourse in time to start in the $2m, Magic Millions 3YO Guineas due to a traffic accident.

Alligator Blood did reach the course with the help of a police escort and he subsequently won the 1400m race by 2L. The win was Alligator Blood's eighth from nine starts, with the other start his second in the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas over 1600m last October, with the rich bonus race taking his earnings to $2,104,250.
