2017 Doomben 10,000 Winner Redzel for Snowden

Co-trainer Peter Snowden enjoyed his third Doomben 10,000 success in 2017 with the stable’s progressive four-year-old Redzel getting the job done in the first Group 1 of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.

Redzel ran second to his younger stablemate Russian Revolution two back in Rosehill’s Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m) before winning the Group 3 Hall Mark Stakes (1200m) at Randwick last time out on April 15.

That form line proved the one to follow up to the sunshine state for the $700,000 Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1200m) with Redzel replicating the same quinella defeating the Chris Waller-trained Counterattack.

The hot favourite in Doomben 10,000 betting this year was the fellow Snowden-trained Russian Revolution and jockey Kerrin McEvoy had the young colt in a good position throughout settled in third.

He couldn’t match it with Redzel in the closing stages however and faded to finish out of the money.

Queensland hoop Jim Byrne meanwhile went to the front aboard Snitzel four-year-old Redzel who led the field around ahead of Upstart Pride.

Redzel was getting a gun ride on the fence in the lead and was still in front coming around the turn as the wider runners started to chase him home down the straight.

New Zealand jockey Opie Bosson was closing strongly aboard Counterattack down the outside, but didn’t have enough in the tank to run down the all-the-way Doomben 10,000 winner Redzel.

“He’s raced really good throughout this preparation and he’s gotten stronger and stronger,” winning jockey Byrne said of Redzel post-victory.

“I knew coming to the turn…if I could hold him together that little bit longer he would make it a little bit difficult [for the others to catch him].”

In third rounding out the Doomben 10,000 trifecta this season was the consistent Lindsay Park-trained Hinchinbrook colt Derryn who came off a Group 2 Arrowfield 3YO Sprint (1200m) win during ‘The Championships’.

Snowden, who now trains in partnership with his son Paul, was thrilled for connections and for Redzel who said was very deserving of the Group 1 success.

“Full credit to the horse…he’s come a long way,” Snowden, whose earlier Doomben 10,000 winners were Beaded (2011) and Epaulette (2013).

“He’s a very honest, genuine horse and he deserves every bit of it.

“It goes to show, if you give them a bit of time and that belief in himself.”

The $700,000 Group 1 Darley Kingsford Smith Cup (1300m) at Eagle Farm on May 27 is the likely next-up option for the Doomben 10,000 winner should the team try to stretch him out over a little further.

Redzel also holds a nomination for Saturday week’s Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m) over in Adelaide, but having now enjoyed elite level success is unlikely to be put on the quick back-up.

To back the Doomben 10,000 winner Redzel next race over the carnival at the best possible Brisbane racing odds head to Ladbrokes.com.au.
