More Kembla success for dominant Moet

619100.jpg

MORE MOET returned to his course and distance hunting ground of last preparation to deliver another convincing victory at Kembla Grange on Saturday.

The hints were there on his previous run just a week before at Hawkesbury, where he finished a strong second over 1800m, and the similarly large track of Kembla, coupled with a step up to 2000m, saw a repeat of his devastating success at the course on January 28.

The three-year-old settled in midfield for jockey Adrian Layt and, with plenty of work to do, Layt maneuvered More Moet for a clear run on the outside who then went through the gears to draw clear of the field and run right through the line, defeating Kiarra Rose by one and a quarter lengths, with a further 1.5 lengths back to the Godolphin-owned Evanesce.

Connections were rewarded for their patience as Peter & Paul Snowden worked the son of More Than Ready up to an optimum trip, which only sought to make the victory sip that much sweeter!

“Patience can be a virtue in racing and he’s really starting to show some potential now,” said co-trainer Peter Snowden. “A good win today and he was solid through the line.

“You’d think going further for him isn’t going to be a problem, but it was great today to see the horse win as well as he did.”

Adrian Layt, who rides More Moet in his trackwork at the stable, echoed the sentiments of the trainer: “He settled lovely just in behind. Despite getting shuffled back a little before the corner, I just let him get his rhythm back and although he took a few bumps he really put pay to them well and was strong through the line.”

Triple Crown Syndications saddled nine runners on Saturday in seven races, and in addition to More Moet’s superb victory the team scored a further four runner-up performances, including some mightily unlucky runs.

Chavish just failed in catching the leader at Kembla Grange having been caught behind horses for much of the straight, costing him victory, while it was excellent to see Group 2 winner Charlie Boy return in fantastic form after running second at Doomben for new trainer Tony Gollan.

Bukzel also returned first up with a runner-up performance at Kembla, and at the same track Island Missile produced a super display on debut to get up for second in the 2YO Maiden Plate.

Congratulations to all connections!

Redzel ranked in top eight on international sprint rankings

dsc_0739

TRIPLE CROWN’S speed machine REDZEL is ranked equal eighth on the Worldwide Racing Post Ratings ranking of performances over the 1000-1200m trip in 2017.

The Group 1 Doomben 10,000 winner recorded a Racing Post Rating of 120 this year, which places him just two points behind the only other Australian-trained runner on the list above him, Chautauqua, and ahead of Aussie sprinters English, She Will Reign, Redkirk Warrior, Spieth and Malaguerra.

The list is headed by the Aidan O’Brien-trained sprinter Caravaggio, who recorded an RPR of 125 for his performance in winning the Group 1 Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot in June this year.

rprs-redzel

Racing Post Ratings act as a handicap rating for a given performance. The figure is arrived at by considering several factors including the grade of the race, the quality of the field and weight carried and provides a key tool for punters in assessing performances.

Redzel signed off with an emphatic victory in the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 during a season in which the four-year-old delivered four Stakes wins and finished outside the top two only once, earning over $1 million in prizemoney.

The son of Snitzel recently returned to work at Snowden Racing’s Randwick stable, with co-trainer Peter Snowden thrilled with what he has seen so far.

“I’m really happy with him,” he said. “He’s done particularly well and his work has been really solid.

“He’s around two weeks from the trials but he looks in great order and we’ll certainly be looking at targeting the top races on the sprint calendar in both Melbourne and Sydney.”

Redzel’s potential targets include the Group 1 Moir Stakes at Moonee Valley over 1000m and also a possible tilt at the richest race on turf, The Everest, run over 1200m at Randwick  on October 14, should a slot present itself.

Bjorn Baker on target with another smart juvenile

Version 2

THE money came for Addictive Nature and his backers were duly rewarded. The two-year-old son of Savabeel travelled on pace in a furiously run race, before outstaying the lot to win comfortably by one and a half lengths.

The $775,000 colt showed signs of youth and is clearly destined for greater things after the manner of this victory, with the close relation to Group 2 winner Savvy Nature bred to get over further ground than this 1100m trip.

Bjorn Baker has proven himself to be an astute producer of two-year-old talent, with Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner Unencumbered and Group 2 BRC Champagne Classic winner Winning Rupert among his list of success stories.

Gold Symphony ‘has more to offer’ ahead of Winter Stakes

607786.jpg

GOLD SYMPHONY struck for his fourth career Stakes win in the Listed Civic Stakes at Rosehill on June 24 and co-trainer Peter Snowden has warned that the rejuvenated four-year-old ‘has more to offer’ ahead of his next assignment when he returns to the track on Saturday for the feature race of the meeting, the Listed Winter Stakes.

“Gold Symphony is looking in great order and working really well,” said Snowden. “He’s come back a different horse this preparation following his gelding operation and is starting to display the true potential he showed as an early three-year-old.

“He was a good winner at the track last time out after a super run in the Stradbroke and he’s not showing any signs of letting up at home. Fourteen Hundred is perfect and there’s no one better than Hughie to be on board. I would say he has more to offer on Saturday and will be very hard to beat.”

The leading son of Reward For Effort took advantage of a drop back in class to take the feature race at Rosehill, after being considered by many to be an unfortunate runner in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap at Doomben on June 17.

In an impressive display, Gold Symphony defeated The Monstar by a half-length, who subsequently franked the form with a luckless second in the Listed Ramornie Handicap at Grafton on Wednesday.

Hugh Bowman, who delivered Gold Symphony to his fourth Stakes success a fortnight ago, is once again in the saddle, with Gold Symphony set to jump from barrier 12 as he bids to take his career prizemoney beyond the $550,000 mark.

Race a Your Song colt with the Lindsay Park team – leading the way for 2YO success!

david-hayesben-hayestom-dabernig_05-11-2016_gen_flemington__79

DAVID HAYES’ and the team at Lindsay Park’s outstanding season has seen them collect some of the biggest prizes on the calendar. Their Group 1 wins in 2017 include the Oakleigh Plate through Sheidel, Newmarket Handicap winner Redkirk Warrior and Goodwood victor Vega Magic. But it’s the stable’s two-year-old success that sees them far and away ahead of their rivals.

A total of 38 two-year-old wins have flown the way of the Euroa-based operation, more than double the tally of the next best in Australia, and through Stakes winners Catchy, Formality, Tulip and Ploverset they have taken some of the most prestigious juvenile races in the country.

Fastnet Rock filly, Catchy, gave David Hayes a record sixth Blue Diamond success as he saddled three of the top four finishers including Tulip. The Pierro filly went on to win the Group 3 Magic Night Stakes at Randwick before backing up with a third place finish in the world’s richest race for two-year-olds, the Golden Slipper.

Indeed, Tulip was among a remarkable four runners for the Hayes’ & Dabernig team in the Golden Slipper, with Wyong Magic Millions 2YO winner Madeenaty & Group 3 Chairman’s Stakes winner Formality joining Blue Diamond winner Catchy and Tulip.

Hayes and his team have invested heavily in their state-of-the-art training facility in Euroa, and are now clearly reaping the benefits of their efforts having had a phenomenal season thus far, and will have a runner in the $10,000,000 The Everest in October.

In expanding our syndications into Melbourne we had no hesitation in linking up with the professional and successful stable.

For two-year-old success the team at Lindsay Park has the outstanding facilities and right formula to get results.

Fab four for super Steyne

548223.jpg

STEYNE scored his fourth win in succession when he valiantly got up on the line to win the BenchMark 70 Handicap over 1580m at Canterbury.

Sent off the $2 favourite, Steyne gave himself some work to do entering the straight, however he showed his undeniable class in running down the Bjorn Baker-trained Live To Dream in the closing stages.

It’s been a remarkable run of form for the son of Snitzel since his return from a tendon injury sustained 18 months ago, as in five starts he has recorded a record of four wins and a mightily unlucky second.

A masterful ride from Hugh Bowman secured the victory on this occasion, with the leading jockey moving to within 2.5 wins of current pace-setter Brenton Avdulla.

Co-trainer Paul Snowden was delighted with the consistency of Steyne and credit goes to the Snowden Racing team for the excellent placing of the four-year-old.

“He’s a winner isn’t he,” said co-trainer Paul Snowden. “That’s the win of the day as he had a lot of ground to make up turning for home.

“Hugh stayed cool and calm as he cut the corner which proved the winning move.

“He’s done tremendously well since returning from his tendon injury. The rehab programs that get them back to the races are superb and he’s a beneficiary of that.”

Brave Song with huge debut run

The win capped an outstanding day for The Red of Triple Crown, as in the opening race two-year-old colt Brave Song produced a fantastic performance to finish a running-on second after he was bumped by eventual winner Calculated in the straight.

The son of Your Song was making his debut in the 1200m Handicap, and flew home to display signs of an encouraging future in being beaten a head by the highly regarded race favourite.

Steyne bids for four timer as Brave Song makes debut

605255.jpg

SNITZEL gelding Steyne will be bidding for a fourth win in succession when he takes his place in Race 5 (3.15pm) over 1580m at Canterbury this afternoon.

The four-year-old suffered a severe tendon injury 12 months ago and his explosive return to the race track has been nothing short of extraordinary.

After finishing a desperately unlucky second on his comeback run at Kembla Grange, Steyne has gone on to win his next three starts in emphatic fashion, and makes his city berth this afternoon at Canterbury with Hugh Bowman in the saddle for the first time.

Huge credit goes to the Snowden Racing team, Muskoka Farm and the veterinary team in nurturing Steyne not only back to full fitness, but back in sensational form as he now continues to realise his full potential.

Good luck to his always large and enigmatic following this afternoon!

Also on the card exciting Your Song colt Brave Song will make his career debut in the 2YO Handicap over 1200m in what looks a competitive first race of the meeting.

Short priced favourite Calculated would appear to take all the beating however Brave Song enters the race with some fine trial form behind him, including his most recent trial at Randwick on June 23 where he finished just a half-length behind Godolphin’s Exceed And Excel colt Marble, a victor of his three trials to date and a most impressive winner of his most recent outing at Rosehill trials on Monday.

Brave Song will have Nick Heywood on board for his first start, and Paul Snowden is expecting a bold showing: “He’s schooled up well in trials and we think he can run a nice race,” he said. “Hopefully he’ll get the race run to suit and he’ll be hitting the line well and doing his best work late.”
