LOST AND RUNNING DOMINATES THE HUNTER

John O’Shea trained Lost and Running has won the third ever running of the $1 million The Hunter at Newcastle Racecourse after jockey Hugh Bowman steered his mount to an easy win at the Hunter Valley course

Lost and Running wins the $1m Hunter

After the race, trainer O’Shea claimed the best was yet to come for his runner, having seeing the five year old demolish his rivals with ease.

It’s hard to argue with O’Shea’s boast when Lost and Running had to overcome a terrible wide alley barrier draw, sit three wide the trip covering extra ground whilst carrying the top weight of 59kgs to victory.

“That was a big performance today with bunch of weight,’’ O’Shea said.

“Tommy (Berry on Bandersnatch) kicked up on Lost And Running’s inside and made him work but he got into a lovely rhythm and really let down late.

“He’s a class act and I’m really proud of the horse. The key to this horse is we knew he would continue to improve this preparation and he’s done a really good job today.’’

Lost and Running had finished fourth in this years Everest, beating home Classique Legend and Eduardo in the process. From there O’Shea had been keen to press forward with training after a solid display to focus on The Hunter.

“When we got home after the Classique Legend Stakes he put on 5kg so I said ‘be buggered if you need to go to the paddock’,’’ O’Shea said.

“So we thought we had better give him another run and why wouldn’t you, this is a great race, fantastic track. The Hunter is a great day, one of these growing days that have been develop, and is only going to get better.’’

Lost and Running was confidently backed before the race and jumped a $2.50 favourite before winning the $1m Newcastle feature.
