Black And Bent Breaks Record – 10th Straight Jumps Win

The $100,000 2013 Jack Dow Memorial Hurdle was the seven-year-old’s first jumps race in more than a year but it was just like riding a bike.

The Robert Smerdon-trained gelding had four flat races to prepare for the hit-out and picked up where he left off in last year’s Galleywood Hurdle, defeating Xaar Best by nine lengths.

In doing so he became the first horse in Australian jumps history to claim 10 consecutive wins.

Smerdon said in his specialty of jumps Black And Bent was the equivalent of Black Caviar and admitted it was a relief to see him healthy and racing so well.

“He’s come off the canvas…When he got that tendon injury we thought that’s his career, that he’d equalled the record,” Smerdon said.

With the topweight of 69kg, Black And Bent was ridden by Steven Pateman who is predicting there will be plenty more victories to come for the star jumper.

“It’s great to be a part of the horse with history being made today,” Pateman said.

“I think he’s honestly going better than ever.”

In a big morning for jumps racing at Sandown, Peter Moody’s 2010 Sandown Cup winner Macedonian made his jumps debut with great success.

The seven-year-old indicated he may have a big future over the hurdles when winning the Robert Fitzgerald Memorial Hurdle by 20 lengths.
