It's A Dundeel Claims Autumn Triple Crown

It's A Dundeel Claims Autumn Triple Crown

It's A Dundeel has become just the fifth horse to claim Sydney's three-year-old triple crown with the easiest of wins in the final leg, the Australian Derby.

 

By the time the Randwick Guineas and Rosehill Guineas are run, the 2400 metres of the famous classic is not for the faint hearted.

 

In an awesome display, It's A Dundeel jogged at the back of the field for the first part of the race before James McDonald took him to the outside on the turn.

 

He reached the front with ease and McDonald had him in cruise control as they went to the line six lengths ahead of Philippi.

 

It's A Dundeel went out the $1.24 favourite with Philippi second elect at $9.50 with Kingdoms defying his $101 quote to run third, 1-1/4 lengths behind the runner-up.

 

Trainer Murray Baker is used to winning big races both in Australia and his native New Zealand but says his latest star may be his best.

 

“He did it pretty easily, didn't he,” Baker said.

 

“He's so relaxed and so laid back.

 

“To win three Group Is in Sydney is pretty special.”

 

In fact It's A Dundeel has won four Group Is in Sydney with the Spring Champion Stakes in October his first.
