Guelph has won the Group 1 Flight Stakes at Royal Randwick Racecourse today October 5, 2013.
The three-year-old has now claimed an impressive three Group 1 race titles, after winning the Group 1 Sires’ Produce Stakes and Champagne Stakes in her two-year-old season.
Guelph has now won six of her 10 race starts and has earned more than $1.28 million in prize money during her horse racing career.
The Exceed And Excel filly won the race by almost two lengths ahead of Sensibility, who placed a strong second, and Bound For Earth, who finished in third.
Guelph was so strong in the 2013 Flight Stakes that she was able to easily overcome the widest barrier, which left her sitting three wide without cover throughout the entire race.
Trainer Peter Snowdenwas over the moon with Guelph’s 2013 Flight Stakes win.
“It’s not the spot we wanted to be,” Snowden said.
“But even though she was three deep it was snail pace really.
“If you can sort of jump relax and a great turn of foot that’ll take you all the way and she’s got all three.”
While Guelph is nominated for the $3 million Cox Plate this spring, Snowden anticipates the Group 1 Thousand Guineas on October 16 to be her last start of the preparation.
“As far as I’m concerned it’s just the Thousand Guineas,” he said.
“The autumn carnival’s at her feet.”
Kerrin McEvoy was aboard Guelph for today’s 2013 Flight Stakes win.
“I just rode her really confidently,” McEvoy said.
“Sure she was three deep but she has the class to overcome it.
“She’s a really classy animal as we’ve all seen.
“I feel privileged to be a part of her career that’s for sure.
“We’ve got a job down in Melbourne with the filly’s race and we’ll see what happens then.”
