Why We Drink stormed home in the first for the day at Ipswich when claiming the QTIS three-year-old BenchMark 62 Handicap 1350m.

Ridden by Ipswich specialist Michael Cahill, the Jan Pritchard trained gelding made it win number three from seven career starts.

The Beaudesert runner snatched the win from the Pengelly partnership of trainer dad Phillip and jockey son Brad.

Phillip made the journey from Gladstone and only just missed out on recording another metropolitan win.

Baylee Nothdurft did well to stay aboard Thatfeelsbetter who was checked in the final stages to finish third.

Nothdurft turned his luck around to win in the next aboard Think Glory for the Steven O’Dea and Matthew Hoysted stable.

The maiden win was impressive at the line despite a messy start and getting caught wide on jumping from the wide gate.

Gympie trainer Cherie Vick has built a good association at Ipswich with three-year-old runner Dare to Share.

With four Ipswich starts under his belt, the colt has won three including today’s Class 2 800m sprint.
