Sepoy Salutes, Just, In Coolmore Stud Stakes 2011


Sepoy has managed to just win the Coolmore Stuf Stakes 2011 from Foxwedge

The Coolmore Stud Stakes has given us our third short priced winner at Flemington on Derby Day but like his stablemate in the first, he didn’t do it as easily as we might have thought.

Sepoy  was made to work right to the very end with the flying Foxwedge making up a huge amount of ground in the final furlong.

Another 50m and there’s no doubt Sepoy wouldn’t have been able to hang on but he did the job for Peter Snowden on a day when the Darley supremo is in town.

The queries before the race about him not being suited up the straight were justified but he simply had the class to overcome it and win the 2011 Coolmore Stud Stakes.

Foxwedge came oh so close to causing an absolute boilover but once again the John O’Shea colt found one just that little bit better than him on the day.

Speedy filly Satin Shoes did the work early out in front and she really put in a good run to hold on for third spot in front of a gallant Zamorar.

While it wasn’t as convincing as we thought the day still belongs to Sepoy though as well as jockey Kerrin McEvoy who’s heart rate must be just about on the limiter.

“You get a little bit nervous because obviously he’s short in the market and winning so well,” he said.

He says he hopes his journey with the colt doesn’t end yet and he can share in more glory before the inevitable trip to Europe.

“He’s got  fantastic record now, it’d be nice to see him in Australia for a couple more runs before he goes overseas,” he said.

Snowden says he’s thrilled with the result and the final gap didn’t worry him in the slightest.

“He’s a great horse, he’s been up a long time, although the margin was small the effort was huge,” he said.

There will certainly be no Black Caviar matchup in 2011 with Sepoy to go to the paddock and be given a little more time to reach his full potential.

“He’s still a baby and got a lot of growing up to do,” Snowden said.

“He’s just not ready physically or mentally to take on a champion yet.”

Snowden says he’s planning on the Ascot Cup Carnival in June as his major 2012 assignment in a bid to further showcase Australia’s dominant sprinting stocks.

Sepoy paid $1.40 for the Coolmore Stud Stakes win just in front of Foxwedge at $2.80 and Satin Shoes at $5.70.
