Grandview Avenue Wowed Ryan and Nugent at The Valley
MELBOURNE, Victoria – Grandview Avenue is the champion of the Carlyon Stakes held yesterday, November 28 at the Moonee Valley Racecourse. The five-year-old gelding left his racehorse trainer and jockey in utter awe with his excellent performance. Based on the information posted online by Australian horse racing tips and information website, JustHorseRacing, Grandview Avenue defeated Prophet’s Thumb who came in second place, and Prezado, who made it third place.
Simon Ryan is the trainer of Grandview Avenue. He reportedly felt astonished upon witnessing his bay-coloured sprinter winning yesterday’s 1,000-metre horse racing match. Ryan confirmed that Grandview Avenue’s victory had caught him by surprise. He remarked that his Warrnambool runner has been winning the competitions comfortably and that he had gone another level in the Listed Carlyon Stakes.
Ryan remarked that his group had thought that Grandview Avenue would run well. He cited that they, however, could not have foreseen that their galloper would emerge as the champion at The Valley. Ryan relayed that the proud event would sink in on him on the way home. He affirmed that he is truly impressed and overjoyed for Grandview Avenue, adding that the winning racehorse had come a long way.
Teo Nugent also expressed his delight as Grandview Avenue was able to take him to victory during Saturday’s sporting event at The Valley. The victorious jockey remarked that he had felt truly confident coming into the race yesterday. He added that he was just quite delighted to obtain some black type there, especially for a Warrnambool racehorse trainer like Ryan.
Nugent pointed out that, to witness Magic By Gosh and Statue Of Liberty’s son progress through the grades, the latter had put the writing on the wall at Flemington when done a creditable fifth. Additionally, the winning rider relayed that Grandview Avenue provided weight last start in the 955-metre competition and that he had run sometime.
Nugent shared that, during their participation in the Carlyon Stakes, Grandview Avenue flew the gates and together they landed in a favourable spot outside the leader. He said that the talented sprinter had given an outstanding turn of kick when he asked him at the straight’s top. Nugent is reportedly as excited as anyone to toast stakes triumph, as per the news posted online by Australian horse racing news and information portal, Racenet.
The prize-winning horseman confirmed that he had known that Grandview Avenue had had the potential to be at the tilt. He said that when a racehorse is against some of the high-performing sprinters, however, especially from Godolphin, that runner is not in the benchmark 58s like he used to be.
When Ryan, Nugent, and Grandview Avenue competed in the Moonee Valley Racecourse yesterday, their group was one of five in the small stable. They went home black-type champions, 57.65 seconds following the barriers crashing open. From 393 runners, Ryan had trained 45 winning racehorses. This stellar accomplishment took place before Grandview Avenue romped to victory yesterday, without a stakes win.
Grandview Avenue’s form reversal has coincided with his racehorse trainer aiming for the 955-metre to 1,100-metre races, instead of 1,200-metre trips. Five-year-old, Anthony Freedman-trained mare, Prophet’s Thumb, made it second at the Carlyon Stakes. She launched late to clinch second place. Meanwhile, six-year-old, fancied gelding Prezado appeared to obtain every opportunity from a stalking stance behind the pace. The bay-coloured racehorse trained by Simon Zahra and Mathew Ellerton landed on the third spot at The Valley match.
