2014 Newcastle Cup Aim for Sabor A Triunfo

Former Chilean galloper Sabor A Triunfo has their third run of the season in Sydney for trainers Paul & Peter Snowden this Saturday ahead of a possible shot at the Newcastle Gold Cup 2014.

Narrow $3.30 favourite through Ladbrokes.com.au for the $85,000 De Bortoli Wines Handicap (2000m) at Rosehill Gardens, the five-year-old Dance Brightly mare comes off a win over the 1900m at the track a month ago.

A month between races is ideal for her too according to co-trainer Paul Snowden who has the import earmarked for the $175,000 Group 3 Newcastle Gold Cup (2300m) over more distance on September 18.

Snowden said there was nice hype around the stables over Sabor A Triunfo.

“We really can’t wait to see her run tomorrow,” he said.

“I’m still thinking she’s nowhere near her best even after the win last start.

“She’s certainly up to a trip that suits and we’ll learn a lot more after tomorrow.

“If she wins as good as we think she can go to the Newcastle Cup next.”

Sabor A Triunfo kicked off her career in Chile with Alejandro Aguado under whose preparation she was very competitive at elite level contesting four Group 1 races as a three-year-old.

Included in those were two seconds place finishes over 1609m and 2011m, a third in the Chile El Derby (2400m) in February last year and her super impressive five length success in the Group 1 Chile Latino Americano (2000m) that March.

She was then transferred to Europe where she had just the two starts with Ed Dunlop but failed to impress with two disappointing runs last September.

OTI Racing then purchased the mare and sent her to Sydney this winter where she’s been stabled with the Snowdens and had two runs down under.

On debut she ran six lengths away second to Black Jag over the Randwick mile before turning the tables on the same horse for her Rosehill win on July 5.

The form has certainly impressed Snowden who wasn’t expecting so much after her arrival from Europe.

“As a rule these Europeans….start from scratch and build their way up,” he said.

“What’s surprising us is she’s come over here and she’s straight into it.”

Saturday’s race then is another test as they go up to the 2000m with Joshua Parr staying on for their ride from a gun barrier three (into two) draw.

“Don’t think there’s a lot of speed in the race…she might be running fourth or fifth but totally up to her,” Snowden said.

“She finds her own spot…she’ll just ride herself.

“We’re just taking every run as it comes but really excited about her tomorrow.”

Looking at the Ladbrokes.com.au markets their main dangers are considered to be the Chris Waller-trained Multilateral ($3.80) who also comes off a 1900m win at Rosehill, Gai Waterhouse’s O’Reilly five-year-old Laidback Larry ($4.80) and another Waller runner in Done Nothin’ Wrong ($4.80) who ran third to their stablemate Multilateral last time out.

The headline race at Sydney’s Rosehill meet this weekend meanwhile is the $100,000 Listed Winter Challenge (1500m) at Ladbrokes.com.au are offering money back as a bonus bet up to $50 on the race if your horse runs second!
