SCONE-bred champion trainer Peter Snowden has picked up a win back where it all started with filly Moss Trip powering through to take out the $400,000 Inglis 3YO Guineas (1400m) on Saturday.
Ridden by Brenton Avdulla on day-two of the Scone Cup Carnival at Scone Race Club, Peter Snowden admitted he was a little nervous watching the filly who charged forward from second last when he took the Sky Racing microphone.
“I didn’t expect her to get that far back, it was bad for my heart but in saying that, Brenton looked confident to me and the last 200m was very impressive,” he said.
“She eats likes a machine, works like a machine and now she is starting to race like a better horse so things are looking up for her. She might be going somewhere.”
Part owner, Channel 10 weather presenter Tim Bailey had nothing but praise for the two-day Darley Scone Cup Carnival.
“It’s a great place Scone; it’s a pleasure to race here,” he said.
“Congratulations Heath the CEO, it really is a special moment for us we know the two-day carnival oh-too-well.”
Meanwhile, the people’s favourite, Osborne Bulls has continued his rise with a win for Godolphin’s James Cummings in the $150,000 Yarraman Park Luskin Star Stakes (1300m).
The Inglis Guineas & Coolmore Dark Jewel Race Day attracted an estimated 4000 people, wrapping up a massive two-days for Scone Race Club.
