Joe Pride trained Brutality has capped off an excellent year for the Warwick Farm trainer after the fiver year old took out the $750,000 Villiers stakes with an impressive turn of foot at Royal Randwick on Saturday

Joe Pride trained Brutality wins the G2 Villiers Stakes

Brutality unleashed a powerful turn of foot in the final stages of the race at Randwick which saw the gelding reel in Ellsberg and win the Group 2 contest over the mile. 

The win marks yet another success for trainer Pride after seeing success with Eduardo in the Doomben 10,000 and The Galaxy at Group 1 level as well as wins in The Shorts, The Challenge Stakes and Classique Legend Stakes.

He also had a huge year with Private Eye who claimed another Group 1 in the form of the Epsom Handicap as well as the Group 3 Show Quality.

Brutality’s win in the Villiers will be a little bit sweeter though have backed the horse up for the third week running and him giving perhaps a career best performance to win the $750,000 feature.

“It has been a fantastic 12 months,’’ Pride said.

“A lot of hard work goes into it, great support from my owners, and it culminates into a day like this.

"This is a fantastic result, a big effort from the team at home to get Brutality here at his peak today and yeah he gets a spot in the Doncaster Mile although he’d need a wet track to be really effective in it.

“One of my owners Pat Davidson and his wife Bernie, are also in the ownership of Private Eye so they’ve had a pretty good year, too.”

With a fitting end to a strong 2021 Pride has confirmed his stable will be back better than ever next year with a significant Autumn campaign already on the cards.

“The autumn looks really good, we’ve got the strongest team we’ve ever had going into a carnival,’’ Pride said
