Our first winner for 2021 (Saturday 9th January) and the stable takes out the feature race once again. This time, the listed January Cup at Randwick Racecourse where the 6-year-old Import, Spirit Ridge (Nathaniel/Tates Creek) yet again proved his superior staying prowess.
Ridden to perfection by jockey Robbie Dolan, he jumped from barrier 9 but still managed to find the inside, holding third/fourth position. Racing in his easy style, just off the fence. At the 200m mark he kept his line but made his claim for the lead and the inevitable victory.
The stable was well represented with another two runners in this race, Fulmina (Snitzel/Inchita) and Gone Bye (Al Maher/Gone Platinum), finishing a commendable fifth and sixth, respectively.
Congratulations to all runners, owners and connections and a special mention to our hard-working staff who help keep the show rolling along.
