The 2013 Gloaming Stakes has been run and won at Rosehill Gardens today, with Complacent coming out on top.
Complacent had the run of the race in the Group 3 Gloaming Stakes and was able to hang on ahead of Savvy Nature, who produced a big run for second, and third place-getter Drago.
The three-year-old went from winning a $22,000 handicap at Hawkesbury two weeks ago, to claiming today’s 2013 Gloaming Stakes in what was a mammoth jump in grade.
He will now be aimed at the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes at Royal Randwick Racecourse on Saturday October 12, 2013.
Trainer Peter Snowden revealed that he always expected Complacent to be a strong competitor throughout the spring carnival.
“He’s a quality horse and we thought this about a month ago, we thought he might be a carnival horse,” Snowden said.
“He was given a gun run.
“He’s a young immature horse but he definitely has talent.
“He looks a nice horse for the future.
“If he pulls up okay the Spring Champion is on the cards.
“I think come autumn he’ll really furnish into the horses I know he will be”
Jockey Kerrin McEvoy was pleased to see Complacent come out and beat the big guns in the 2013 Gloaming Stakes.
“He’s a nice big horse to look at. He’s a lovely type,” said McEvoy.
“He’s leapfrogged a few classes to come here today but he’s done it in nice style.
“It was nice to see him relax today.
“He really powered to the line.”
