Winning Trainer: James Cummings

On the win: "This is a big deal for the farm, to get the first two-year-old colt to win a Group One this season is amazing."

"I just begged James (McDonald) to ride the horse that way and it's really paid off. He's performed so strongly. He loved that quick back-up. He's excelled once he's got to a mile and that's the class of the European pedigree coming through, and that told in the finish. "

About the colt: "He's been a real work in progress. He's the type of horse that has improved with a lot of experience, a lot of handling. We took him for a trip to Melbourne and back. A lot of that travelling has helped wake him up and mature the horse."

"He's just got this very interesting future about him, being by Too Darn Hot who is an emerging sire for us. He (Too Darn Hot) was a colt raced by Andrew Lloyd Webber for John Gosden and he was an exceptional two-year-old himself. He won by seven lengths on debut as a two-year-old over a mile on a softish track, and that gave me a little bit of confidence about today."

"But look, this colt is out of a Street Cry mare, he's got a big future. He's taken down a couple of big guns but he's just done such a great job this prep to keep improving and get all the way here to the final Group One in Sydney as the first colt to win a Group One (this season) is a big performance."

Winning Jockey: James McDonald

On the win: "It's not a lot of fun out there but when you win a Group One, I suppose it's good fun.

Gee, he's a trier. He had it written all over him last start so I came here with good confidence. I thought he would handle the conditions well. He was a nice, fit horse."

Talk about the ride: "Sometime I do what I'm told, and sometimes I don't. He left us with no real option. It was just get back and brush home and if you handle it, you handle it. Race tactics don't really get involved there. You're either on a horse that can handle it, or if you're not you're cast. "

On 13 Group 1s so far this season, edging closer to Australian record): "I've got to get four. It can be done."

Beaten Jockeys:

Adam Hyeronimus (Anode): "Very happy and proud of him. He's done a great job this campaign. Just the last 300m in the conditions but if it was a better track, he'd have run better. He's going well."

Tommy Berry (Linebacker): "Yeah that hurt. That hurt a lot."

Michael Dee (Fearless): "Ran well. Stuck on great and will certainly be a nice horse for next prep."

Tyler Schiller (El Castello): "Just didn't handle the track."

Zac Lloyd (Tenbury Wells): "He tried hard. Just a bit outclassed at the moment."

Jamie Kah (Manaal): "She tried her best. Very tough little horse. Just the track."

Dylan Gibbons (In Her Eyes): "I think she went OK. I couldn't really see."
