Champion trainer Bart Cummings may have unearthed yet another feature race winner in Eurozone, which maintained his unbeaten record in Saturday’s Australian Turf Club Handicap at Rosehill.
Eurozone defied a determined challenge from short-priced favourite Bull Point to make it back-to-back wins.
Cummings’ grandson and soon-to-be training partner James forecast a race like the Golden Rose could be in the scope of this son of Northern Meteor.
“He looks a promising colt,” James Cummings said.
“Tim Clark rode him confidently, popped off the fence and took command of the race. The horse has a turn of foot, he’s got race-craft – he’s a natural.
“If we can keep him ticking over he might be able to kick a goal for us.”
Asked about the Golden Rose, Cummings replied: “He’s still in the race. We have to wait around until September, but there is a race of similar nature in a couple of weeks.
“I think Bart will want to aim at a hot race.”
