Colette Wows Boss with Her Form as She Bags Australian Oaks Crown
SYDNEY, New South Wales – Colette left jockey Glen Boss highly impressed as she helped him grab the Australian Oaks 2020 top prize. The three-year-old filly took part in the 2,400-metre horse race at the Royal Randwick Racecourse last Saturday, April 11.
Colette, whose betting price was $2.90, coasted two-and-a-half lengths clear of Toffee Tongue, whose betting price was $15. She managed to defeat this racehorse that Chris Waller moulded. Also, the racehorse that James Cummings trained beat Quintessa. This sporting horse, whose betting price in the weekend tilt was $17, was three lengths further away from the winning bay-coloured filly. Mark Newnham’s Quintessa, who jockey Nash Rawiller rode, finished on the third spot.
When Boss competed in the Australian Oaks 2020 competition, he was victorious in the Sydney Cup less than one hour later. He primed Colette, making the racehorse poised to strike in the match, according to the report by Australian horse racing information website Racenet. The daughter of Libretto and Hallowed Crown, whose home track is Sydney’s Agnes Banks, demonstrated her class when the competitive jockey discovered the outside at the top of the straight.
Boss remarked that Colette was in a better position than she was one week earlier. He commended her for her amazing looks. Also, he praised racehorse trainer Cummings and his staff for their efforts of maintaining the filly. Boss cited that Colette was not huge, yet she delivered like a sizable racehorse with a massive action that she was able to place herself in the winning spot. She enjoyed the brief turnaround, kicking lucidly for an ascendant triumph in the $500,000-feature race.
Meanwhile, Cummings described his charge as a late bloomer and is currently on her maturity stage. Nevertheless, he relayed that she, indeed, performed quite well in the Australian Oaks 2020 sporting event, based on the report by Australian horse betting tips and information portal JustHorseRacing.com.au. Cummings remarked that the unbeaten galloper possesses a promising future and is worth taking care of, considering her latest impressive performance of claiming the Australian Oaks 2020 top honour.
Moreover, Colette’s racehorse trainer could not help but compare her to her father, Hallowed Crown, who would always be an exceptional racehorse to him. According to the report by Australian horse racing information website Racenet, Hallowed Crown gave Cummings his first Group 1 win in his racehorse training career. In 2014, the colt bagged the Golden Rose and, less than one year later, he would commence a stallion stint.
Cummings stated that he appreciates Colette more now for proving her excellent skills further. He pointed out that she had appeared understated elegantly. Furthermore, Cummings cited that, similar to Hallowed Crown, the high-performing filly had shown an excellent temperament. The racehorse trainer shared that Hallowed Crown possessed a fantastic and classy pedigree and plenty of classic blood. He relayed that the female sporting horse had shared such a feature of her sire.
Cummings said that, at the Australian Oaks 2020, the favourable and robust staying northern hemisphere bloodline had been quite useful. He mentioned that this Sydney carnival is where an outstandingly fit and healthy racehorse is essential to winning, and Colette had presented these traits in the past two weeks. He said that she had featured a terrific stayer’s turn of foot, which is a priceless capability, especially on the competitive stage.
