Toydini On Track For Emirates Stakes After 2013 Crystal Mile Win

The 2013 Crystal Mile has taken place as Race 8 at Moonee Valley today, and Toydini has emerged on top after the race was run.

Toydini has now won five of his 17 race starts and has earned more than $560,000 in prize money during his career.

The four-year-old won the race by a nose in front of Speediness, who failed to hold on to the win on the line, and Sacred Falls, who placed in third position.

The Bernardini gelding placed third by less than a head in the Group 1 Epsom Handicap last start and was just too good in today’s Crystal Mile.

Toydini was paying odds of $3.30 and was the race favourite at

Trainer Guy Walter was over the moon to score a win with Toydini on Cox Plate Day.

“It’s a great day to get a winner,” Walter said.

“He’s a lovely horse, he ran very well in the Epsom.

“I think he has better days ahead”.

“He wanted to win. I was impressed with him.

“I had his mother and she was just narrowly beaten in a Doncaster and an Epsom.”

Toydini will now head towards the Group 1 Emirates Stakes on November 9, 2013.

Owner Robert Bergstrom was quick to give credit to both the trainer and jockey Blake Shinn for today’s 2013 Crytsal Mile win.

“It was a fantastic win,” he said.

“Blake knows the horse so well.

“Guy Walter’s such a wonderful trainer.

“He maps the program out so professionally.”

Shinn predicts that Toydini will one day secure a Group 1 victory based on today’s Crystal Mile performance.

“That’s what it’s about competing on the big stage,” he said.

“I think this horse is capable of winning a Group 1.

“He’s got a great will to win and he toughed it out.”
