2014 TV Stakes Winner Petrology Heading to Sandown Guineas

The Listed TV Stakes (1800m) ran at Flemington Racecourse today, one of the nine races that makes up Crown Oaks Day.

The favourite Proactive jumped well while Mark Zahra nearly lost his ride on Beau’s My Boy after getting knocked, however he did a great job to stay on.

Petrology ($8.50 at Ladbrokes.com.au) was on the move from the outside early with Upham and San Carlos leading the pack right up until the home turn. Proactive got a good fourth position but really overreacted to being tight, wanting to over race.

The David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained Petrology waited patiently for a run behind the leaders before working clear from the outside at the 300m mark. He went to the lead from Hero I Am. He was less than one length in front, looking like the clear winner until Chill Party lengthened from the outside. However he managed to hold on, just beating Tom Hughes’ horse for the win by a shoulder.

Third place was a photo finish but ultimately it went to Tashbeeh, giving Hayes & Dabernig two of the first three finishes.

Dwayne Dunn rode Petrology home in first place, closing the gap on Damien Oliver for the jockey premiership.

“This horse has shown plenty of ability to win a race like this,” the jockey said directly after the race.

The horse has shown to be a bit of a trickster with Dunn noting he’d do better as a gelding.

“I didn’t expect the turn of foot I got but it was a good effort for him to hold on down the straight.”

The winning trainer David Hayes had both first and third in the race, with Tashbeeh looking a real contender in the end.

“It joined in very quickly but the other horse had a beautiful run and it just paid off in the end,” the trainer said.

“Dunn got clear when it mattered, presented him on time and ran a long last 50m.

“His trackwork leading into it has been first class and he brought his A game.”

Hayes noted Petrology would probably head towards the Group 2 Sandown Guineas (1600m) Saturday week.

“[Keeping his undercarriage] has yet to be decided, as a gelding he could really develop into a proper horse but a win in the TV Stakes now might complicate things.

“We’ll look at the Sandown Guineas, he’s really getting on top of his game and that’ll be the ball decider.”

Whatever happens, the Sandown Classic just got that much more exciting. Make sure your online betting account at Ladbrokes.com.au is open and running to back Petrology on November 15.
