Holyfield Bags Win in Rosehill, Beats Snowdens’ Untamed
TAREN POINT, New South Wales – Two-year-old colt Holyfield emerged victorious on Saturday’s Group III Schweppervescence match.
On the rail, the son of Hurtle Myrtle took up a prominent position early in the 1,400-metre competition for racehorses aged two years old.
Then, around the home turn, visiting British jockey Tom Marquand asked him to kick powerfully.
Holyfield went inside the straight while he ran very eagerly. Then, on the soft ground, he carried on with his rallying action.
Holyfield prevented the tenacity of jockey Nash Rawiller’s colt Untamed, which challenged him.
The successful racehorse, which has a starting price amounting to $8.50, defeated the colt that Paul and Peter Snowden’s racehorse training company educated.
Holyfield successfully made it by three-quarters of a length. Furthermore, he extinguished the fire in the efforts of Time Is Precious.
Jockey Brenton Avdulla’s colt, which Gerald Ryan trained, landed on the third place during the horse race yesterday at the Rosehill Gardens Racecourse in Western Sydney.
Time Is Precious was reportedly another three to one-fourth-length away on the third position, according to the report from Australian horse race news website Racenet.
Marquand carried on with his triumphant autumn stint in the Australian city, guiding the male racehorse that David Eustace and Ciaron Maher trained to a fighting victory.
He confirmed that the competition worked out well for the colt.
Moreover, Marquand remarked that there was never a moment’s hesitation because the formidable racehorse fought his entire way to the line.
Holyfield delivered his best as soon as the other racehorses joined him in the last 250 to 300 metres, the British horseman affirmed.
Maher relayed that, when they placed the sports horse in the competition and left him out there to contend, the colt proved that he was, indeed, skilful and determined.
He cited that the male racehorse was in the Western Sydney competition for other high-performing racehorses to beat.
Nonetheless, the colt’s trainer affirmed that the racehorse was merely too robust.
The partner of Eustace and proprietor of the Ciaron Maher Racing Club shared more stories about Holyfield that had taken place before this weekend’s race.
Maher said that the winning colt had travelled back to Sydney where he had spent most of his time as a racehorse.
Today, he said that the sports horse has carried on establishing an impressive record along with a favourable riding stint with Marquand.
The racehorse trainer affirmed that the colt would be an essential sports horse if he could win a more competitive match.
In Newcastle, Holyfield had been glorious on his launch before his departure for Melbourne where he was victorious at Sandown.
When Maher relayed that he had excuses, the colt became unplaced in the Produce Stakes of the Victoria Racing Club Sires.
In three weeks, the racehorse’s trainer confirmed that the 1,600-metre Group I Champagne Stakes is on the radar for the prize-winning colt.
Holyfield will join his stablemate named Prague.
This two-year-old colt will also head to the same match where Maher’s racehorse is heading to after he competes in the Group I Sires’ Produce Stakes.
This horse race will take place at the Royal Randwick Racecourse next Saturday.
