REDZEL followed his $10-million Everest Sprint victory with another top win in the Gr1 Darley Classic over 1200m at Flemington on Saturday.
Redzel may be heading for Royal Ascot in 2018 – that was the clamour coming from the Triple Crown syndicate who part-own the superstar sprinter following his sixth success in a row. He confirmed his superiority over Vega Magic And crowd favourite Chautauqua with a stylish all-the-way win to claim the $600,000 (£350,877) winner’s cheque.
Josh Tinning, racing manager for the Triple Crown syndicate, is now hoping that Redzel will be routed to Royal Ascot in 2018 for a crack at the Diamond Jubilee Stakes.
Tinning said: “We would all absolutely love to come to Royal Ascot with Redzel. That would be a dream come true for us all and hopefully we can make it happen but we will enjoy today first. It has been the most amazing journey for all of us.”
Trainer Peter Snowden now believes Redzel is the best Australian sprinter in the business.
