Secessio Heads All-Waller Top Four – Winter Cup 2014 Results

Runaway Sydney trainer premiership winner Chris Waller enjoyed another big day out at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday preparing a quartet of winners including Secessio who defeated three of their stable mates in a controversial 2014 Winter Cup.

It was an all-Waller affair in this year’s $100,000 Listed Perfection Fresh Winter Cup (2400m) as he trained the first four over the line headed by his winning Konigstiger five-year-old Secessio ($8).

Secessio had just a nose to spare over the Kerrin McEvoy-ridden Hoylonny ($17) on the line in Saturday’s Sydney feature after a devastatingly close photo finish revealed the German import had just held off the Lonhro five-year-old.

In third only a long neck further away was then the race favourite Mulaqen ($3.50) who came off a fourth over 2000m at the track a fortnight ago.

It was a luckless run for Mulaqen though after their jockey Jason Collett stopped riding after a call from rival jockey Josh Parr a few seconds before.

Parr was aboard eventual fifth placegetter Destiny’s Kiss ($3.70) who almost came undone after clipping heels with Sir Bigglesworth, ridden by Brenton Avdulla, at the 250m mark when a gap they were trying to get through closed in on them.

“I don’t know how I stayed on my feet,” Parr told The Sydney Morning Herald.

“I was going to win and it was an absolute tragedy beaten.

“It was my desire to stay outside Jason on Mulaqen, which put me to the inside of Sir Bigglesworth.

“I lined up for the run and then it all just collapsed in front of me … I got Sir Bigglesworth’s heels and I was lucky to stay up.”

While Destiny’s Kiss went right back and had to settle for fifth, Collett also believed he was robbed of a winning chance in the race with Waller’s third placed Haafhd gelding Mulaqen.

“I got a call from Josh Parr and I had to stop,” Collett said.

“It cost me momentum and the race. I was a bit surprised he [Parr] was there.”

Winning hoop Tye Angland was able to get on the inside of the horse causing all the drama, the erratic Sir Bigglesworth, and stay out of trouble long enough to get up on the line.

“There was only room for one of us on the outside there, so he [Parr] went back to the inside,” Angland said.”

Angland also said that the increased speed put on by Hoylonny at the 1000m mark gave them the pace they needed to score.

“Hoylonny taking off won us the race because it put some speed into it,” he said.

“He’s a nice horse [Secessio is] and it was a nice win.”

Veteran Group 1 performer Permit ($8) meanwhile rounded out the Winter Stakes top four for Waller just over a length off the winner.

It was Secessio’s first win this campaign, and their first since a first-up victory at Rosehill over 1500m last November so very pleasing for part-owner Debbie Kepitis who also has a share in Hoylonny.

“It was fantastic,” she said.

“To have the game mover, Kerrin, take our wonderful Hoylonny to the front and almost win, then to have our little German [Secessio] come past him in my purple colours was fantastic.

“That was the best part, knowing I had the race won.”

Secessio improved dramatically on a distant last start sixth when beaten f14 lengths by Destiny’s Kiss in the Stayers Cup (3200m) run in the wet at Randwick on June 7.

Waller said the difference was the track conditions (Good 3) on Saturday and the drop back in distance.

“Secessio probably is better on a dead track but there is good grass cover on this track today and that helped,” he said.

“The curators have done a good job with this track so horses like Secessio that like it wet can win.”
