2014 Sebring Stakes Results – Schofield Steers Flamberge To Victory

Chad Schofield paid tribute to brother-in-law Nathan Berry after steering Flamberge to victory in the 2014 Sebring Stakes at Rosehill Gardens this weekend.

Flamberge jumped from the gates brilliantly and took up the running in the early stages of the race, but looked as though he was going to be beaten when Hot Snitzel loomed with 100 metres left to run.

Hot Snitzel put his nose in front, but Flamberge was able to fight home bravely and score his maiden win at Group level after performing fairly in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m), Newmarket Handicap (1200m) and Group 3 McCarten Stakes (1100m).

Schofield showed incredible maturity after the race, following the tragic passing of brother-in-law Nathan Berry earlier in the week, and said that the Magic Millions Classic winning hoop was riding alongside him at Rosehill Gardens today.

“It’s a very sad occasion but you’ve got to stay strong on concentrate on the job today,” Schofield said.

“We’re all in it together and Nathan wouldn’t have wanted us not to ride.”

Trainer Peter Moody has been happy with the form of Flamberge during his autumn preparation and said that the drop in weight was the key for the son of Exceed And Excel, who was beaten carrying 57.5 kilograms in the McCarten Stakes at Rosehill Gardens a fortnight ago.

Moody was quick to pay credit to the ride of Schofield and remains hopeful that the pair can combine to win the 2014 Golden Slipper with Bring Me The Maid this afternoon.

“It’s is terrific to see Chad bounce out there,” Moody said after the race.

“It’s been a hard week for all concerned, the family, good to see him get the monkey off his back today and I’m sure he is thinking of young Nathan,.

“The key to this horse is the weight.

“You go back through his career and I think he is almost undefeated with 55.5kgs and less on his back outside of his Newmarket fourth and not many of these nomed for the Newmarket let alone run in it.”
