Viking Legend Wins Dulcify Quality
The Gai Waterhouse-trained Viking Legend stamped himself as the three-year-old to beat in next Saturday's Spring Champion Stakes with a powerful win at Randwick today.
Viking Legend improved from his last start second in the Spring Stakes at Newcastle to win the $100,000 Dulcify Quality, a proven guide to next week's Group One event over 2000m.
Waterhouse said Viking Legend is improving with every start and appeals strongly as the type to go on from the Champion Stakes to the Victoria Derby at Flemington.
Waterhouse and winning jockey Blake Shinn spoke to TVN about plans for Viking Legend.
