EDUARDO TAKES OUT THRILLING SHORTS

It was billed as a “mini Everest” with six runners in the field set to line up in the world's richest turf race in October and the race lived up to that billing as 3 previous Everest runners battled it out all the way to the line in the Group 2 feature

Eduardo Wins the Shorts

The race saw a thrilling finish between Eduardo and Nature Strip go all the way to the final 100m as the former lifted from the canvas to win the Group 2.

From the outset the race turned into a slugfest with Nature Strip and Eduardo setting a blistering pace up front.

In these scenarios and in recent times Nature Strip had proved to good, but not on this day as the mighty Eduardo refused to be bullied and hung in with the Waller sprinter all the way.


Trainer Joe Pride was understandably enthusiastic about his runners performance.

“Eduardo is seriously relentless, he is a ripper, a great sprinter,’’ Pride told News Corp.

“Nash (Rawiller) was happy not to cross Nature Strip but that is the strength of this horse and it’s been there to see in a few of his starts.

“Like the day Eduardo beat Nature Strip in the Challenge and again today he is just that little bit versatile – he’s a fast horse that doesn’t have to lead.

“A lot of horses when they lead and it gets taken away from them they basically give it up but this horse just hangs tough and that’s what Nature Strip hates about him.

“Nature Strip is going to have nightmares about Eduardo!”

Arguably the hard luck story was that of South Australian Gystrash who found a passage hard to come back in the home straight after opting for a rails run and finding nothing but rump.
