Victorian star could stay in state

CLASSY Victorian pacer Five Star Anvil may have extended his Tasmanian visit by winning Sunday night's Governors Cup in Hobart.

Trainer Adam Kelly said that he had been intending to take the horse home this week but may now stay for the $40,000 Examiner Easter Cup at Mowbray on Easter Sunday.

He indicated that a final decision could depend on Five Star Anvil's handicap for the standing-start event.

Kelly also won Sunday night's $30,000 Tasmanian Derby when Outrageous El led all the way to beat fellow Victorian Lake Eyre and previously unbeaten local star Resurgent Spirit.

Lake Eyre, part-owned in Tasmania, came from last in a huge performance, while Resurgent Spirit was gallant in defeat after working hard.
