Aided by a great ride by Aaron Bullock, the Richard Litt trained SEDITION has got up in the last bound to win the Coolmore Denman Cup (1280m).
Bullock made full use of the inside barrier (1) to have Sedition nicely positioned on the rail behind the leaders during the run, before wearing down the pace setter ZOUOLOGIST in the shadows of the post. The Jeremy Gask trained Tim’s Principle came from near last on the home turn to flash home for 3rd.
Sedition had run a close 2nd in the Bengalla Cup back in August but made amends today.
“He must like this track” said trainer Litt,
“It’s great to come here and win such a prominent race at Muswellbrook with this horse”.
Local trainers also had success with Jan Bowen taking out the Two Rivers Denman Dash (900m) with her speedy mare EMILETTE.
In doing so, Emilette smashed a 20 year track record for the 900m clocking 50.17 secs, beating the 50.42 recorded by Royal Handout back in 2000.
“All of the family could gallop, Eminent Duke is her half brother who was quick too!” Bowen exclaimed.
“It’s such a thrill to break that track record”
Todd Howlett also had success when TOTO took out the Muswellbrook RSL Club Class 1 Hcp (1000m), coming from well back in the field.
“He’ll head down to another TAB Highway on Everest Day at Royal Randwick” said Howlett.
“He still has a lot to learn but he’s getting there.”
“There’s no shortage of ability with him”
