Samadoubt silences doubters with runaway win in Chelsmford Stakes
“Unless Winx had returned, nothing was going to run him down.’’
This was jockey Tim Clark’s accurate summation of Samadoubt’s dazzling win in the Group 2 $250,000 Chelmsford Stakes (1600m) at Royal Randwick on Saturday.
Samadoubt proved his shock win in the Group 1 Winx Stakes two weeks ago wasn’t a fluke when he led most of the way and dominated his rivals in the feature weight-for-age race.
Clark was so far in front he was even able to have a long look over his left shoulder just inside the final 100m before easing down on Samadoubt as the chestnut streaked home more than three lengths clear of his rivals.
“Amazing, he’s just gone to a new level this time in,’’ Clark said.
