2013 Tattersall’s Cup Winner Rialya Eyes Two Mile Prize

Connections of Adelaide-based stayer Rialya are considering staying on in the sunshine state to target the $150,000 Listed Queensland Cup (3200m) next month after their gritty win in the Tattersall’s Cup at Eagle Farm today.

Breaking a lengthy 16 month winning drought the Lloyd & Gary Kennewell-trained Kempinsky gelding hadn’t won a race since the Group 2 Adelaide Cup over the two miles last month.

They showed lots of improvement today however digging deep to beat a field of better fancied rivals in the $200,000 Group 3 Carlton Draught Tattersall’s Cup (2200m).

Rialya was on a short back-up too having finished eighth to Anagold in last weekend’s Listed Ipswich Cup (2150m) where they pulled early and ran themselves out of contention.

Jockey Joe Bowditch had them a bit more relaxed today with a lovely run fourth on the fench.

The horse responded well too with a smart win over the late-pouncing Shenzhou Steeds who was a very solid second with hot favourite Rothera finishing third after a luckless run being caught three deep throughout.

Rotherea did have the lead with a couple of hundred metres to travel but was fading fast after doing so much early work and Rialya fought back to take control and outplay the others in a genuine staying effort.

“He’s a big tough horse, he’s a big strong horse and he gave me a hard time early,” Bowditch said.

“Had a beautiful run, one out one back.

“He’s that type of horse you got to get him out and get him going.”

As for the winner Rialya may not be a Caulfield or Melbourne Cup type, despite the ambitious dreams of their owner, but the Kennewell’s are convinced that a 2014 Perth Cup win wouldn’t be out of the question.

“He’s good for the whole team,” Garry Kennewell who trains in partnership with his father Lloyd, listed as Rialya’s official owner, said.

“I think the Perth Cup would be a good one for him.”

The lucrative $400,000 Group 2 Perth Cup (2400m) is held at Ascot during the WA Summer Racing Carnival on New Year’s Day.

A much earlier aim however could be the Queensland Cup in a fortnight back at Eagle Farm on July 6 where over the 3200m they should be very well suited.

“He might stay on for two miles in the Queensland Cup in a fortnight,” Kennewell said.

“He might get a silly weight, it was a very good win today, but we’ll see.”
