2020 Sydney Stakes Results: Trumbull Wins Ahead of The Hunter

The $1 million The Hunter (1300m) at Newcastle next month looks a nice, lucrative next-up target for impressive first-up Sydney Stakes 2020 winner on The Everest Day Trumbull.

Kim Waugh’s talented Darci Brahma five-year-old had his first run since July and continued his ace first-up record with a tough victory in the Group 3 $500,000 Sydney Stakes (1200m) at Royal Randwick.

Jockey Tommy Berry reunited with the winter’s Civic Stakes winner to make it a hat-trick of wins on the day taking out The Everest consolation race on the $14 pop from Wyong.

Trumbull was away well from the gates but had a luckless run three and four wide throughout with no cover facing a stiff breeze all the way.

Berry didn’t panic however and gave the eventual winner a patiently-timed ride as Prime Candidate led the Sydney Stakes field around.

Once on the home straight Berry came with big run winding up on Trumbull down the outside to hit the front 100m out from the line.

There was a brilliant late challenge from the Gerald Ryan & Sterling Alexiou-trained Standout ($4.20) who got caught up on the straight having to duck and weave his way to the finish, but Trumbull held on to win in a tough effort to frank his excellent lead-up trial form.

In third rounding out the Sydney Stakes trifecta a further one and a half-lengths back was the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Signore Fox ($41) at huge odds.

“He was excellent,” Waugh said of her Sydney Stakes champ post-race.

“He went fantastic. He jumped with them and that’s all we want him to do.

“He was three deep no cover and I was very worried…but Tommy was so patient with him and he’s just a very good horse.

“If he can just keep jumping, he can keep winning.”

Waugh said the team would see how the horse came through the win before making next-up plans, but that the million dollars on offer in The Hunter 2020 on November 14 was very tempting.

“We’ve said ‘let’s see how we go today and we’ll make a final plan’, but we’re pretty excited,” she said.

“The Hunter looks very nice.”
