Forget Posts Upset Win in Cameron Handicap

Kim Waugh has continued her impressive run of form through the 2015 Spring Carnival in Newcastle this afternoon; saddling stable star Forget to success in the Group 3 Cameron Handicap (1500m) with complete ease.

Jumping from the gates well, jockey Kerrin McEvoy allowed Forget to stride forward and settle in prime position on the heels of early leader and clear race favourite Ecuador; who set a noticeably quick tempo over the back straight and towards the bend.

Offered a clear racing line upon arriving at the final straight, the Exceed And Excel gelding quickly spooled up before charging forward when asked for an extra effort by McEvoy; pulling clear of his rivals to hit the line a length ahead of Godolphin runner Malice; Wouldnt It Be Nice boxing on for third.

Kim Waugh was understandably thrilled with Forget’s performance for success in the 2015 Cameron Handicap and was quick to lay the praise on the horse, a brilliant ride from McEvoy and a noticeable drop in weights from his last start in the win.

“That was a fantastic win and a brilliant ride from a terrible barrier,” Waugh said after the Cameron Handicap.

“We were just saying we don’t do a lot with him, we take him back to the farm and he loves it and he just keeps bouncing.

“We said let’s give him a run in the Cameron after his last run – Kerrin rode him and he carried 60 and it was a really tough effort to run second but today he’s just proved he’s worthy of it.

“He’s been carrying big weights this whole prep. A big ride and very proud.”

McEvoy delivered a typically polished performance aboard Forget to win the 2015 Cameron Handicap and praised the efforts of Waugh and her team in the success.

“It’s a credit to her (Kim). This horse has been racing really well and well done to her,”

“He looked really good in the parade today and he’s raced accordingly, he was never going to be beaten.

“He’s an adaptable sort of horse – he’s been forward and back in a few races and I was really pleased to come here today with a light weight on his back.

“He’s been carrying some big weights in equally-tough races on a Saturday in town so to come here with 54kgs on his back I’m sure he looked around and said what’s on my back here.”
