Odinson too classy in Inglis Nursery

3 minute read

Ciaron Maher and David Eustace have captured their third Inglis Nursery in the space of four years with Odinson showing his class to overcome a wide run and claim the $500,000 juvenile feature at Randwick.

Making his Sydney debut, Odinson ($5) flew the gates but drifted back to worse than midfield before peeling off heels in the straight and unleashing a powerful surge to reel in Beer Baron ($51) by a neck. 

Nymphadora ($101) flashed home late to grab third, another length away, in an eye-catching performance. 

Odinson made a promising start to his career when third in the Maribyrnong Plate at Flemington last month and Johann Gerard-Dubord, Sydney racing manager for Maher and Eustace, said the fact he was able to handle an interstate trip to Sydney and compete in the reverse direction showed the youngster's quality. 

"He jumped better today but he had to take his medicine and just get a bit of cover from there," Gerard-Dubord said. 

"He didn't take the turn that well but he was very good late. 

"It's a big change for him, the horse is still fairly immature mentally and he must have a bit of ability." 

Odinson jumped from the outside barrier in the 13-horse field and was forced to track wide from the draw. 

However, winning jockey Tyler Schiller said that it might not have been a major negative, given Odinson's racing style. 

"I don't know if it was as much of a hindrance as it looked," Schiller said. 

"He got to sit wide, and I know it's not great being wide, but a straight run to the first turn, a quality horse, he just needed a bit of room. 

"He had me a little bit worried at the 300 (metres) when Beer Baron put that two-lengths on me, but he really knuckled in and I'm really happy with the way the colt has responded under pressure. 

"He's in for a pretty bright future. 

"I don't think it's the toughest Inglis race but going forward, he is going to draw better barriers and have better runs than this and be able to finish off as good." 

Odinson continued the stable's outstanding recent record in the Inglis Nursery (1000m), which they also won with Acrobat in 2020 and El Padrino two years ago.
