2014 Doncaster Mile Won By Sacred Falls – Full Results

Sacred Falls victory in the 2014 Group 1 $3m The Star Doncaster Mile (1600m) at Randwick today was the four year old’s first visit to the winner’s stall since collecting the winner’s trophy in last year’s famous Randwick Mile.

And in a dominant performance, winning trainer Chris Waller, who saddled up five runners, was able to fill the first four placings with Royal Descent, Weary and Hawkspur finishing second, third and fourth.

Former Brisbane and Sydney’s leading jockey Zac Purton returned home to ride an inspired race to push Sacred Falls in between runners at the top of the rise and rail up along the inside of Royal Descent who looked to have the race won when Nash Rawiller let go out wide on the tack.

Purton is currently leading the Hong Kong Jockey’s premiership and is set to end the long running reign of Douglas Whyte who has been the champion Hong Kong rider for last thirteen seasons.

The world class jockey was very happy to return home and win such a prestigious race on the first day of ‘The Championships’.

“He obviously done it last year with no weight on his back. He hasn’t won a race since but he has been racing really really well and obviously the wet track helped him again here today,”

“Not many horses win back to back Doncasters. He has done a really good job.”

The Gai Waterhouse trained Pharoah was the last horse to achieve that feat with wins in 1994 and 1995 and before that the mighty Super Impose collected the double in 1990 and 1991 when Purton was only a little boy.

Waller said that Sacred Falls was sent back to New Zealand after a dismal Spring Carnival and that was the catalyst for him winning back to back Doncaster Miles.

“Quiet unbelievable, the first four,” Waller said.

“He is a very good horse. He just went a bit pare-shaped in the Spring.”

“He is an outstanding colt. He is is the next $20 million horse, He is the next one, don’t worry about that,” Waller said with reference to stablemate Zoustar who was purchased for $20 million before winning the Group 1 $500,000 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington in the Spring.

Sacred Falls ($10) was able to score a clear cut half length win over Royal Descent ($8.50) with Weary ($4.40 favourite) a further two and a half lengths away in third spot with Hawkspur ($10) running home strongly to gain fourth.

Waller said that Sacred Falls, Royal Descent and Hawkspur were likely to back up next week on the second day of ‘The Championships’ at Randwick in the Group 1 $4m Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m).
