Erewhon Wins 2010 Spring Champion Stakes Ahead of Retrieve – Randwick Race 6 Results

Peter Snowden has claimed a Group 1 quinella in Race 6 at Randwick today taking out the $400,000 Group 1 Inglis Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) with his stable stars Erewhon and Retrieve.

Improving Commands gelding Erewhon was the better of the two today after finishing second to Retrieve in the Gloaming Stakes a fortnight ago, completing a fairy tale Group 1 quinella for the Darley stables in the 2010 Spring Champion Stakes.

Erewhon jumped well from its ideal barrier two draw with Hugh Bowman aboard and took to the front early.

The grey then fell back to third while Just About Ready took to the front in the mid stages, racing away to lead by up to seven lengths.

With 600m to go Just About Ready was still the leader, but then Alma’s Fury came up with the challenge moving up quickly.

On the home straight Retrieve begin to wind them up on the outside, but it was stablemate Erewhon who held the lead hanging on in a courageous run to turn the tables from a fortnight and hit the line first.

In the end, despite the best efforts of the favourite’s jockey Joshua Parr, Retrieve was unable to get past the leader and it was Erewhon ($6.50) who held on to win by a neck over Retrieve ($1.95F).

It was a dead heat for third with Praecido ($12) and Shootoff ($201) crossing simultaneously, Shootoff making an eye-catching return to form for the season after being totally abandoned by the bookies and punters.

Improving from a midweek horse to a Group 1 winner inside a month, Erewhon has now won three of his seven career starts.

The next race to take place at the Royal Randwick today is Race 7 – the $400,000 Group 1 Daily Telegraph Metropolitan (2400m) – jumping at 3:30pm.

Our favourite to win is Herculian Prince currently paying $4.40 at Ladbrokes.com.au, so get on his odds now before they shorten!
