Russian Revolution Wins The Galaxy

Russian Revolution Wins The Galaxy

Russian Revolution has broken through for a maiden win at the highest level this afternoon; leading home stable mate Redzel to be crowned The Galaxy winner at Rosehill Gardens.

Russian Revolution was a resounding favourite and the clear market mover to win The Galaxy and the colt did his chances of success no harm when jumping well and taking an ideal position in transit on the heels of early leaders Miss Promiscuity, Jungle Edge and Redzel.

Offered a clear line upon arriving at the final straight, the Snitzel colt required the entire length of the Rosehill Gardens straight to overtake his stable mate, but bobbed his head at the right time to record the win; Jungle Edge maintaining to the line for third.

Co-trainer Paul Snowden was on hand for Russian Revolution’s win in The Galaxy and was thrilled that the horse was still able to salute after casting a plate at the barriers.

“It’s very frustrating when you see one do that because you know what can happen,” Snowden said of the less-than-ideal lead-in to The Galaxy.

“It’s ended well so who cares.

“We knew that the weight was going to kick in at some stage and obviously it was late in the final 100 yards. That’s the only difference probably at the end of the day, the pull in the weights.

“Both horses have run terrific and we couldn’t have asked for anything better.

“He threw the rider yesterday, nearly threw her again this morning so he’s been ready to go the last 24 hours, he’s been so full of himself.

“Anything that could go happen did go wrong, but we’ve got away with it. This will tone him down now and we’ll be fine.”

Jungle Edge was prominent throughout The Galaxy and undoubtedly secured his best result to date in finishing third, while fellow outsider Glenall was brave to the line to finish fourth.

Topweights Music Magnate, Fell Swoop, English and Big Money were never in contention and tailed off to finish towards the rear of The Galaxy field.
