There is often that bit of trepidation when a highly talented horse returns from a spell. This was the case with Sincero (3YO G Umatilla x Yours As Always) who had won his last four starts last preparation. Stephen Farley has always expressed a high opinion of the Umatilla three year old which was further vindicated with a devastating win of the Listed Gosford Guineas over 1200m on Monday.
Sincero was once again ridden beautifully by Chris O'Brien who settled the gelding well back off the speed before making his move approaching the final turn, upon straightening for the judge he quickly put pay to his rivals racing away to win by five lengths and in the process gave Umatilla his 33rd individual Stakeswinner.
Sincero's impressive record is now 7 wins & 1 placing from 10 starts for earnings of $298,250.Back
