It’s me who wins the Kosciuszko. Trainer Brett Cavanough eyes...

Brett Cavanough knew It’s Me would win the $ 1.3 million Kosciuszko with equal luck in running and a clean week leading up to the race, but neither of that happened.

The scone trainer refused to let his rising star run after a telescopic sight found mucus in her windpipe 48 hours before the race, but Racing NSW vets overhauled her seizure and she took over from there.

Not that it was easy for her to flee.

After a fair jump, the $ 2 favorite went worse than midfield and was no longer given a place by Sam Clipperton on intuition.

Jason Collett was trying to find a run in the straight, and after twirling around and off balance a little, she went to work mowing down Redouble, who had a dream on the rails.

She only caught him in the last two steps, but with a little luck would have won many times.

Cavanough fought back tears after three very stressful days after the race.

“Obviously she is a very good mare. Can you cry “Said Cavanough.

In his private life he thought she would easily win the race before the setback, which cast him into doubt.

And he was worried on the run.

“When he came into traffic, into a black hole near her, I thought we had problems here. But gee whiz, he did a bit of campdrafting to get out and he did the job, ”Cavanough said.

“On race day she only finds six or eight lengths, she’s just amazing. You see what she did today, she was in trouble, knocked them down, came down, balanced herself out, and got the job done.

“I thought one of those old horses would come to the fore today. It was Mitchell Bier’s horse (redouble). He was tough old horse at first, good shape and she still did the job of beating him. ”

The punter, who had $ 48,000 to win at $ 2.10, wouldn’t have wanted to see the 300m if she was in trouble, but Collett found her room to run.

He said she was on her way to the Group 1 race and considering what she’s done in four starts it’s little to be doubted.

“She’s the best horse,” said Collett. “She hit a few small obstacles in the straight. I just had to be patient and when I took her out into the clear air I didn’t see Redouble emerge all the way inside and I just had to ask a little more of her.

“But it was a much bigger test today, and it passed with flying colors.”

It is me who, in two weeks in Rosehill, have gone from $ 26 to $ 15 for the $ 7.5 million golden eagle (1,500 m).

“She only had four starts, she only beat a few open class sprinters. She’s very smart, ”said Collett. “I can’t tell you exactly how high it will get, but how it goes, I’d like to tell Group 1.”



Being the head coach at Godolphin is a big job and takes an extremely heavy toll on your mind and body, but the fact that James Cummings is only in his thirties could mean he’s long at the gig. We asked him during the week at Osborne Park if he should think about his long-term future in power plant operations. “If you look around here, you can imagine that it would be pretty nice to imagine yourself in 25 or 30 years and still enjoy it as much as I’m enjoying it right now,” he said. Cummings also said he’s settled in very well now, which should bring even better results in the coming seasons. “It is very good. I know the employees better and we’re in the right rhythm together, ”he said. “They know how I like to train my horses and we have a very established management group and we make very consistent decisions together. Even deeper, I am getting to know the families of these horses better. Your family trees are surfacing and they respond as we prepare them. “Bivouac’s second place in Everest was the third year in a row that the stable had a place in the big race.

Stewards asked Rachel King about her ride on Everest with tearaway guide Eduardo. “He’s a very fast horse and pulled pretty hard all the way,” said King. “If he could have come back two extra lengths I would have liked that. I was neutral about barriers. I didn’t try to dig up my horse to get over quickly. Chief Administrator Marc Van Gestel said, “So you’re saying you tried your best to hold him back.” King said she would do her best. “I had it under control. I would probably be in front of the Nature Strip, but I didn’t try to go too fast. I never tried to push the horse, ”she said.


Brett Cavanough is almost certain to throw a toss on the stumps with It’s Me and stick it in the $ 7.5 million Golden Eagle in Rosehill in two weeks. He said that during the week before Kosciuszko. “She is four years old. What happens on Saturday will determine that. ”She’s settled for the big race from $ 26 to $ 15 and looks just like a 1,500 meter guy. Tye Angland congratulated Jason Collett after his winning run on the mare on Saturday.

Ice in Vancouver had a real apology for its 65-length last at Kosciuszko after suffering an arrhythmia for coach Cody Morgan and jockey Greg Ryan. “He raced like a drunken sailor. I wasn’t feeling well from the start, ”said Ryan.


Mark Schmetzer coached Saturday Highway winner Ai Marshal, but what he made even better known in 2004 was the person who first tried the world’s eventual conquest of the Sprinter takeover target.


Kalashnikov hasn’t quite lived up to expectations so far and the two-year-old could need a break after finishing seventh in Randwick. Jockey James McDonald said he was far away. “He played with his tongue over the piece that started. From 600 m he never felt like a winner anymore. He didn’t travel like a kind horse that built itself into it, ”said McDonald.


Captivant was pitched as a $ 17 hope for the Golden Slipper after winning the Victory Vein Stakes on its debut at Randwick, but why wasn’t it already in the market? Not good enough.
