Russian Revolution overcame race interference and a loose race plate pre-race to kick his career off on a winning note in Sydney, Australia today. The handsome colt and the race runner-up Diamonds Are stamped their authority on the Schweppes Handicap (1100m) streeting rivals by a widening five lengths and giving every indication that both are above average.
Russian Revolution became the 27th winner for the year for the China Horse Club in 2016 and comes just days after White Hunter’s success in Singapore over the weekend. The Peter and Paul Snowden trained colt is continuing a run of form which is seeing members of the club enjoy success at a rate of more than one winner a week.
“Russian Revolution is a colt who showed ability from an early stage and it is encouraging to see him frank that with a determined performance today,” said Teo Ah Khing, Chairman of China Horse Club.
“Russian Revolution was purchased with partners including SF Bloodstock and Newgate Farm at Inglis and today was an important step forward. Much has to still happen but the focus will be on ensuring he is in a position to compete for some of the better races in the early spring.
“Our club secured a number of quality colts and fillies at the sales in 2015 and we are starting to see more and more of these performers start to surface. The next few months, when these horses come online in Australia and when the two-year-olds start to surface in the United States and in Europe, will be a very exciting time.”
Diamonds Are was first passed the post in the sprint content but bore out on top of Russian Revolution over the concluding stages of the race leaving race stewards with an easy decision to overturn the result.
“My horse [Russian Revolution] was shifted out three-four horse widths and I feel that stopped his momentum,” was the assessment of jockey Blake Shinn.
