Safeguard Claims 2013 Kindergarten Stakes Win – Race 1 Results

Safeguard has claimed the first race on ATC Australian Derby Day upon winning the 2013 Kindergarten Stakes.

The Exceed And Excel colt has now won both his career starts after claiming the $80,000 Christmas Season Plate at Flemington last December.

Safeguard was paying odds of $3.30 to win the Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes at behind favouriteIl Cavallo.

Il Cavallo failed to run on in the final stages of the race after being forced to work early and finished in seventh position.

Safeguard won the 2013 Kindergarten Stakes by a length in front of Everage, who finished second, and Diamond Oasis, who ran home for third position.

Trainer Peter Snowden was thrilled that Safeguard, who had initially been his Golden Slipper pick for the autumn, was able to win his autumn debut in the 2013 Kindergarten Stakes.

“He’s very well bred. He’s a close relation to Denman,” Snowden said.

Snowden admitted Safeguard’s slow start meant that they were forced to run the race in a way they hadn’t planned.

“It wasn’t the way we were going to ride him but Kerrin (McEvoy) used his initiative,” he said.

“It’s good experience for him but as you can see he’s still a green horse but he’s a talented horse.

“More than likely he’ll have a break now.”

Jockey Kerrin McEvoy was equally pleased with Safeguard’s efforts in the 2013 Kindergarten Stakes.

“It just worked out a little bit sticky… and it paid off in the end for me,” McEvoy said.

“He was a nice winner in the end.

“There’s more things to come (for this horse).

“Good job by Pete and the team.”
