2021 Doomben 10,000 Results: Eduardo Digs Deep to Salute for the Punters

Joe Pride‘s red-hot favourite Eduardo was incredibly tenacious digging deep late after using up some early petrol to cross and lead, the seven-year-old fighting hard to hang on and salute for the punters in the 2021 Doomben 10,000 results.

The pressure was on Pride all week as he prepared to saddle-up his shortest-ever priced Group 1 starter in star sprinter Eduardo who went out as the odds-on $1.70 favourite in the $1 million Doomben 10,000 (1200m).

“A great relief, there’s been so much pressure this week,” Pride told Sky Thoroughbred Central post-win.

Pride enjoyed his first ever Group 1 success in the same weight-for-age event with Red Oog back in 2005 and was back posting another victory in the now opening elite level of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival with Eduardo in 2021.

A first-up winner in the Group 2 Challenge Stakes over Australian Horse of the Year Nature Strip, Eduardo was excellent at Rosehill on March 27 carrying the top weight to a 3.5 length victory in the Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m).

He was far from disgraced third-up when third in the Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) before heading to Brisbane as an afterthought to show off his class and determination.

“A great horse,” Pride said.

“He got the job done here today as a bit of an afterthought coming up here to Brisbane, and it’s a testament to the quality and type of horse that he is.”

The Host gelding was ridden by Nash Rawiller who had to fight off a few challenges for the early lead, but Eduardo was too good and led from barrier to box.

The speedster gave a brilliant kick at the top of the home straight and was flat out the closing stages, but as good horses do, he found something late and was able to hold off the late lunging roughie Wild Planet ($31) to win.

In third also at big odds to round out the Doomben 10,000 trifecta was the Toby & Trent Edmonds-trained The Harrovian ($21) coming off a fifth in the $5 million The All-Star Mile at The Valley in March.

“He’s a real fighter,” Pride said of the Doomben 10,000 champ.

“It’s not often you see horses that have that much speed that also have that much fight.

“He’s a bulldog and he kept fighting.

“Congratulations to his connections, they will all be absolutely thrilled.”

Pride confirmed Eduardo would now head out to the paddock staying up in Queensland before returning south for the spring.

“I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do next time around,” Pride said.
