Boss also admitted that he had has a soft spot got Eximus, who was having just his fifth career start in today’s 202 Hilton Hotel Stakes.
“I really like this horse,” he said.
“I said to connections, I can’t wait to get this horse to seven furlongs or possibly a mile.
“I think he’s going to go places.
“Once he gets it all together I’m sure they’ve got… at worse (a) stakes horse here.”
It was Price’s first win for this year’s Melbourne Cup Carnival and the trainer revealed he was shocked by the result.

“I think he’ll get a mile in at the autumn for sure.
