Inglis Sires’ Winner Microphone Adds Another for Godolphin

Microphone’s sensational win in Saturday’s Group 1 Inglis Sires’ Produce (1400m) ensured a clean sweep for Godolphin in all 2yo races this season.

The blue colours once again prevailed as Microphone stormed home to win in thrilling fashion for trainer James Cummings. Last month’s Group 2 Skyline Stakes winner had the inside edge down the straight but most importantly had the legs and the speed to outlast second place-getter Loving Gaby as well as stablemate Kiamichi.

Microphone, who ran second in the Golden Slipper last start, entered the race as the $4.60 second-elect with Ladbrokes, but it didn’t take long for the Exceed and Excel colt to shine.

Cummings said after the race that his horse was in tip-top condition following the two week break, and was bullish on where Microphone now stands among the other two-year-old’s in the country.

“For him to come here with the effort of the guys to hold him together, we barely had to breathe on him for this race today and just be confident in the horse, we didn’t have to do too much with him, and his quality was able to storm through” Cummings said.

“He was able to storm home to the line in another quality two-year-old race and his longevity, his strength, his class, all those things make him the best two-year-old in the country this season.”

Cummings was asked whether or not he’d consider Microphone for a start in next fortnight’s Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) on April 20, but the champion trainer said he was happy to leave that decision until later in the week.

“We don’t make decisions on race day. We will let the dust settle and talk to the boys about it. We’re pretty excited about his strong effort there at seven furlongs.”

Saturday’s race-favourite Loving Gaby wasn’t disgraced in the sticky conditions running second. Kiamichi and Castelvecchio also battled hard for a dead-heat third.
