2014 Warwick Stakes Results: Tiger Tees Scores Tough Win

Wet track specialist Tiger Tees recorded a tough victory in the 2014 Warwick Stakes to give trainer Joe Pride a treble at Royal Randwick on Saturday.

Jockey Glyn Schofield took Tiger Tees to the front in the early stages of the race and he rated the Group 1 winner perfectly in front before asking him for an extra effort with 350 metres left to run.

Royal Descent and Criterion both loomed as dangers, but the race fitness of Tiger Tees paid dividends in the final stages of the race and he held on to record his fifth victory at Group level.

Pride, who won with both Rock Sturdy and Terravista early in the day, only made the decision to run Tiger Tees in the Warwick Stakes after the wet weather hit Sydney earlier in the week and he said that he will keep looking for wet tracks for the seven-year-old gelding.

“The 1400 didn’t look a problem today, but it is all about the track and when they get on a surface that they really like they can do those sort of things,” Pride said after the race.

“I wasn’t worried if I didn’t get another run out of him this prep and when the rain started falling we both started having a giggle Tiger and I and we brought him back to the races.

“He has won four of his last eight now and he didn’t look like he was going to win another race there for a while.

“He was out on his feet and didn’t have much left to offer, but we gave him a good spell and he has come back for his last two preparations a different horse.”

Schofield was originally booked to ride Boban in the Warwick Stakes, but he elected to shift mounts to Tiger Tees after it became obvious that the Royal Randwick track would be rated in the heavy range and Boban would be scratched from the race.

The veteran jockey said that Tiger Tees lost concentration on a couple of occasions in the final stages of the race, but he remained confident that the in-form sprinter would be able to hold on for victory in the Group 2 event.

“I was mindful there was going to be no pressure on and every horse that was in the race bar me wanted a bit of cover, so I didn’t give them any of that,” Schofield said.

“I didn’t make any dynamite sectionals early on.

“He had a couple of good looks coming down the straight; his ears came up and I gave him a crack so he decided to get going again.

“He got the job done, he got the job done well and well done to Joe and the connections.

“It is a nice double for the family.”
