Pembrook Playboy was the first horse to be announced for the $900,000 The Race by Grins (2200m) by slot holder Dunstan Horsefeeds.
Cambridge Raceway doesn’t hold fond memories with Pembrook Playboy for trainer Nathan Williamson, with the Southland horseman finishing eighth behind the entire in last year’s Gr.1 4YO Emerald (1609m).
However, the son of Bettor’s Delight loves the 2200m trip, having won four and placed twice in his seven starts over the distance.
He has been in consistent form this time in, finishing runner-up in all three of his starts, including the Gr.3 Invercargill Cup (2700m) when first-up in January.
