Mister Impatience Scores Late 2015 Queensland Cup Win

After running down the beaten certainty Pop ‘N’ Scotch at Caloundra on Saturday the Michael Moroney-trained Mister Impatience came away with the Queensland Cup 2015 trophy and a winter black-type win.

With Brisbane’s Eagle Farm Racecourse undergoing renovations, this year’s $150,000 Listed Hutchinson Builders Queensland Cup (3200m) was run at the Sunshine Coast and nine stayers lined up in the two mile showdown.

Race favourite was the Bryce Heys-trained Major Major ($4.20) who eventually finished off the first four running a well beaten fourth over 13 lengths from the winner.

Heading towards the line it looked as though the Liam Birchley-trained Husson four-year-old Pop ‘N’ Scotch, runner-up in the race 12 months ago, was the winner as he dashed off with a few hundred metres to go.

Charging home late to steal the show and the $96,000 winner’s check however was the Robbie Fradd-ridden Hernando five-year-old Mister Impatience ($4.80) who came off a fourth on a Heavy (10) Randwick track from June 20 behind Soviet Courage.

Fraad, an internationally performed South African hoop with experience in Hong Kong and Singapore before his move to Queensland last year, had the eventual Queensland Cup winner settled in third throughout and was thrilled with his gutsy late run.

“I probably should have won easier as I got held up when I wanted to get out,” he said.

Having had a gun ride from the inside alley, the winning gelding saved enough energy for the powerful late finishing burst that saw him gun down the subsequent runner-up Pop ‘N’ Scotch ($7.50) who had to settle for second once more.

“I really needed something to follow into the race but there was nothing there. It was a great run in the circumstances,” Pop ‘N’ Scotch’s jockey Paul Hammersley explained after the loss.

Rounding out the Queensland Cup trifecta in a distant third a further nine and a half lengths away was the Toby Edmonds-trained High Chaparral mare Monaco Doll ($6) whose lead-up run was a fifth to Escado in the Group 3 Tatt’s Cup (2400m).

A proven stayer, Mister Impatience enjoyed the step back up in distance over the weekend having won over 3000m at Ballarat by an easy seven lengths in late May and handed Moroney with his second Queensland Cup win following his success with Tinsel Town in 2011.

“Mike always seems to be able to pick the right races for his horses in the winter and he usually gets a winner or two up here each year,” stable foreman John Pisani told the media post-win on Saturday.

The British-bred import has now won four of his 25 career starts for $188,840 in prize money and after the last-stride Queensland Cup win looks on track for the longer term plan for which he was bought over, the $6.2 million Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m) at Flemington on the first Tuesday of November.

Connections purchased Mister Impatience in 2013, the galloper originally prepared in the UK for Mark Johnston for whom he had 15 starters for two wins, with the Melbourne Cup always on the agenda.
