Lunar Fox Stuns His Team as Aussie Guineas 2021 Champion
MELBOURNE, Victoria — Lunar Fox bagged the top prize in yesterday’s Australian Guineas 2021 held at the Flemington Racecourse. With his latest victory, the Horsham resident left his team astonished. According to the news posted online by Australian racing profiles, updates, race day details, and video source, Racing.com, Paul Preusker’s group felt awestruck with Lunar Fox’s performance in the 1,600-metre horse race that awarded $1 million in cash prize to the champion.
The racehorse trainer was in his residence in Horsham, enabling his partner Holly McKechnie to speak on his behalf. McKechnie affirmed that it is a little unusual and unbelievable at that stage to realize that Lunar Fox transformed from a 12-length, 12th placer in the CS Hayes Stakes to a champion in the $1-million Group One classic. She mentioned that the Preusker-trained, 3-year-old colt had always had a substantial capability.
McKechnie also shared that, last start, Lunar Fox ran below par and that they could certainly not find any problem. Preusker’s spokesperson said that the blinkers contributed to Lunar Fox’s victory in yesterday’s Australian Guineas 2021 event. McKechnie relayed that their team had performed the old trick with the blinkers and that those seemed to have performed the job of helping Grant’s Moon and Foxwedge’s son triumph.
Besides Lunar Fox’s racehorse trainer, winning jockey Michael Dee shared a similar sentiment following his victory aboard the brown racehorse. Based on the news posted online by Australian horse betting news and information website Just Horse Racing, Dee affirmed that he could not believe he and Lunar Fox won the Australian Guineas 2021.
He remarked that all he could perform yesterday was his job and that he did it to the best of his ability. Dee added that, on the day of the Australian Guineas 2021, the blinkers got installed, which contributed to a considerable development in his team’s performance. He said that their group drilled the blinkers into him before the competition to remain off the fence.
The victorious horseman relayed that he felt massively excited with his team’s latest achievement. He described Lunar Fox as a casual kind of racehorse in his own right. Dee cited that spectators could confirm his description when Lunar Fox jumped from the barriers that he was all set to go with those blinkers on, delivering his best.
In Australian horse racing history, Lunar Fox is currently the longest-priced Group One winner. At the odds of $301, he prevailed in yesterday’s Flemington event. Lunar Fox put paid to the racehorse favourite Tagaloa within the 200-metre mark. Then, he battled the flying conclusion of Cherry Tortoni, successfully registering his Australian Guineas 2021 victory.
