SEN have announced that rising Victorian star Amron Boy has been selected to represent their slot at the 2022 running of The Phoenix.
The $1.65 million slot race, with $1 million going to the winner, will take place at The Meadows on Saturday, 17 December. The Phoenix provides a unique opportunity for SENTrack listeners, with the audience having a chance to share in $20,000 of prize money should Amron Boy win the coveted race.
Amron Boy has made an impressive debut in 2022, with 12 wins from 30 starts, including a recent standout victory at Sandown on November 12.
Amron Boy’s trainer, Brooke Ennis, said: “We are super excited to be given the opportunity to partner with SEN for The 2022 Phoenix. We are really looking forward to being involved in the second running of The Phoenix.
“SEN are fantastic for promoting and being involved with our industry which only means great things for our sport therefore, we couldn’t be happier to team up with them.”
Troy Little, SEN’s chair of selectors for The Phoenix, said: “After running faster than every other dog in the recent Melbourne Cup preludes on November 12, it was a no brainer to lock in this dog. He overcame a bad draw and ran a scintillating time, he has great form at the meadows and is peaking at the right time.
He is a fantastic chance in The Phoenix and could start near favourite if he draws near the rails.”
