Eye-catching performance by Swift Judgement in the Winning Post Restaurant Handicap (1400m) at Rosehill yesterday.
Trained by Bart Cummings – who also put the polish on Swift Judgement’s sire, GOD’S OWN (winner of the Caulfield Guineas (5 years ago to the day on Friday) – the colt has now raced on three occasions for two city seconds.
The second came hot on the heels of God’s Own double at Bendigo on Friday with God Help Us and Lady Pania, plus the victory of Godwilling at Wyong on 1 October.
Here’s what the trainers had to say about their God’s Own winners:
“He (Godwilling) did it on raw ability: he’s going for a spell now but I reckon there’s a lot of improvement in this horse.”
- KRIS LEES
“He (God Help Us) is a lovely horse ... very imposing type. He’ll get better as he goes further and I’m aiming him for a stakes race on the last day of the carnival.”
- SHANE NICHOLS
“She (Lady Pania) has been ‘Usain Bolt’ fast since day one. Ironically, I became sold on the God’s Owns when I first saw God Help Us as a yearling. We’ll be heading to town next start with Lady Pania.”
- ROBBIE GRIFFITHS
