Sunday at the Sunshine Coast sees the postponed...
Tasmanian Guineas winner The Inevitable claimed his fifth straight win at Flemington on Saturday, racing home in a thrilling version of the C.S. Hayes Stakes (1400m) to take home the prize.
Scott Brunton’s three-year-old opened at $11.00 odds prior to the race and looked to require plenty of luck against quality horses like Extra Brut, Rainer, Stars of Carrum and Vassilator. Jockey Sigrid Carr had her work cut out for her, but ran a brilliant race to loom on the outside and steal a win from $8.50 Age of Chivalry.
“He jumped fare, midfield one off and I was happy with that” Carr said after the win.
“Jamie’s (Kah) horse wandered at about the 1200m and I had to check him, from there I ended up three deep. I had to roll with him, he’s an awkward little horse because he’s so tiny, but he caught the win from at least the 600m, he was so exciting.”
The Inevitable fought on strongly to claim his fifth win from six starts, and has since firmed into a $13.00 chance for next month’s Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) at Royal Randwick.
The gelding be Dundeel and Gift Bouquet went stride for stride with Age of Chivalry over the final furlong, and looks well suited to step up in trip next start.
“He did, he was just getting a little bit too which made it difficult to hit the line, but the sky is the limit with him” Carr said when asked on The Inevitable’s fight in the final stages of the race.
Trainer Scott Brutton shared similar sentiments following the race.
“She kept her cool, she’s got a great turn of foot, he dropped on them and it was just an incredible feeling.”
