Galloper From Day One
Young Cambridge trainer Trent Busuttin’s hard work has paid off with Sangster winning the $A1.5 million Victoria Derby at Flemington. Busuttin, who has just turned 32, was almost lost for words when Sangster ($A13) held off Induna ($A5.50) by a head with Sabrage ($A16) 1-1/4 lengths third at the end of the 2500m. “It’s just amazing to be here, I can’t describe it,” Busuttin said. “Everything’s gone according to plan. He was a big skinny horse but we gelded him and he filled out and he showed he could gallop from day one,” he said. It was the second consecutive win for Australian jockey Hugh Bowman. “I’d like to take up New Zealand residency, it’s a terrific thrill and it’s the cream of the crop when it comes to racing in Australia.” Bowman said.
