Polish Knight Posts Upset Victory In 2012 Tulloch Stakes At Rosehill

Polish Knight has won the Group 2 Tulloch Stakes today April 7, 2012, at Rosehill Racecourse.

The Encosta De Lago gelding won the 2012 Tulloch Stakes by almost a length ahead of Rekindled Alliance, who finished second, and Isopach, who placed third.

Polish Knight came from nowhere to score his first Group win, after missing out on a win in his last two starts.

The three-year-old’s most recent result had been a ninth placing in the $70,000 De La Salle Centernary Plate at Caulfield.

Co-trainer Wayne Hawkes believes Polish Knight has a big future ahead of him.

“He’s a serious horse. He’s certainly going somewhere,” Hawkes said.

“He should have won his last three (starts).

“He’s a lovely staying horse going somewhere.”

Hawkes will now decide whether to give Polish Knight a seven day back-up in the Group 1 AJC Australian Derby next Saturday.

“It’s a big question now if (we) back up next Saturday,” he said.

“This is his first racing preparation.

“It’s easy to get carried away in the moment but we’ve always had a high opinion of him.”

Brenton Avdulla was the winning jockey aboard Polish Knight.

“It’s always a pleasure riding for them,” Avdulla said of the Hawke stable.

“They just told me to ride him where he was comfortable.

“I knew I was going to be in the finish somewhere.

“He’s a horse that’s probably still going to keep improving. He’s still 6 months away.

“Today what he did, it’s a sign of a very nice horse.”
