2021 Eskimo Prince Stakes Results: Peltzer Upsets North Pacific

Three-year-old colt Peltzer extended his unbeaten Randwick record to five on Saturday by taking out the Group 3 Eskimo Prince Stakes first-up under Tim Clark.

With a strong fresh record and equally impressive numbers on rain-affected tracks, the son of So You Think found himself in the box-seat early on before beating home short-priced favourite North Pacific, who failed to let down despite having plenty of room in front.

Peltzer capped off his Spring with back-to-back wins at Randwick in the Group 2 Stan Fox and Bondi Stakes last year after coming off second best to North Pacific at Rosehill in the Golden Rose Stakes earlier in his prep.

Clark, who earned himself a double with the win, played a big part in earning connections some revenge and seems to think there is plenty of improvement still to come.

“I had a beautiful run, it worked out lovely early,” Clark told Channel 7. 

He covered well, he was mindful of the horses behind me charging home, but the race just panned out perfect for him. Inside the 100m he was sucking in the big ones, so as I said, there’s plenty of upside with him and it’s a good way to start out his preparation.”

Trainer Gerald Ryan now has some decisions to make as he looks ahead to bigger and brighter things during the Autumn.

Judging by the way he finished off on Saturday, getting back out to the mile looks ideal as connections ponder the Group 1 Randwick Guineas on March 6 and potentially the Doncaster Mile in early April.

North Pacific had plenty of chances but simply failed to show his usual turn of foot with some sting out of the track.

The Face, meanwhile, stuck on well for second after setting the pace up front.
