Seel N Print winning the second heat of the TAB.COM.AU Inter Dominion

It was the biggest moment of his career and the smile on Todd McCarthy’s face after winning the second Inter Dominion Heat showed it.

He is heading to the TAB.COM.AU Inter Dominion Final!

The young horseman caused the biggest upset of the night so far at Tabcorp Park Menangle when his horse Seel N Print beat the favourite Beautide in the second Inter Dominion Qualifying Heat of the night.

At juicy odds of $38.80 (NSW TAB), Seel N Print showed his usual dash when sprinting past the $1.20 favourite Beautide and The Gold Ace.

Beautide worked to the lead from barrier seven and fought back in the home straight to be beaten just over a metre as Seel N Print came from back in the field.

The sectionals were unavailable at the time but were later posted up in 30.5, 28.5, 28.8 and 28.9 seconds.

Seel N Print and Beautide will head straight into the Grand Final on March 2.

They join Terror To Love and Smolda, who finished first and second respectively in the first heat of the Inter Dominion at Addington.
