All Silent Wins Patinack Farm Classic

The Grahame Begg-trained All Silent, ridden by emerging star hoop Nick Hall, secured a stunning Group 1 victory on Saturday at Flemington in the Patinack Farm Classic.

The six-year-old pulled out a powerful effort to come from last to first in the 1200 metre sprint, setting himself up for a trip overseas next month where the talented gelding will compete in the $1.7million Hong Kong Sprint at Sha Tin.

Saturday’s nine horse field was an intensely competitive one, All Silent taking on five other Group One winners in the weight-for-age feature. At the 300 metres the Belong To Me gelding was still last of the pack but with only 200m to go All Silent let loose an impressive burst of acceleration in the final sprint. The $3.90 favourite defeated Wanted ($16), ridden by Luke Nolen, by three-quarters of a length with Bank Robber ($12) a further head back in third.

Equal second favourites at $5.50, stablemates Apache Cat and Mic Mac managed to finish fourth and fifth respectively. It was a devastating finish for Nicconi, the equal favourite at $3.90 with the eventual winner; as the runner crossed the line last after pulling a front shoe and coming back lame.

All Silent now boasts four wins from four starts at Flemington, with Hall comparing the horse to the great Takeover Target. Hall was more than impressed by All Silent on Saturday who gave the jockey his second Group One victory following his win onboard 2007 Melbourne Cup winner Efficient in the Turnbull Stakes at Flemington in October.
