Broadside, unraced for two months, bounded back to top form with an easy win in the Listed $125,000 ATC Cup (2000m). The tough stayer’s resolute win complemented the earlier successes of stablemates Imperial Aviator and Sedanzer. SUNDAY RACES: BEST BETS FOR NEWCASTLE, GRAFTON Waterhouse’s Tulloch Lodge had phenomenal success during the spring carnival, winning at least one feature race at six successive Melbourne Saturday meetings, while Pinot’s Group 1 Victoria Oaks win was the stable highlight. But the winning roll continues with Broadside proving he is the one to beat in the feature Sydney summer staying races with his ATC Cup triumph. Trainer Gai Waterhouse was all smiles at Rosehill on Saturday after her stable snared a treble. Pic Jenny EvansSource:News Corp Australia “The big advantage with a horse like Broadside is he’s an older horse, he has never been out of work, he went down to Melbourne, we didn’t race him there, brought him back to Sydney and he strikes form immediately,’’ Waterhouse said. “This race was more a stayer’s race and that suited him. I wanted to see him do that today, I thought he would, and there are some nice Cups coming up — there is no reason he should not be running in those races.’’ Broadside ($6.50), well ridden by Tim Clark, is now set for a showdown with stablemate Imperial Aviator in the Listed $125,000 Christmas Cup (2400m) at Royal Randwick in two weeks after he ran out a comfortable two lengths win over Lord Kingsley ($18) with Montauk ($17) more than two lengths away third. Waterhouse’s other ATC Cup runners, Savapinksi ($2.10 favourite) and Fabrizio ($9.50) ran fourth and last respectively. Broadside was too good for the opposition in the ATC Cup. Picture: Jenny EvansSource:News Corp Australia “Broadside has been a wonderfully, consistent horse and he is still lightly raced so we might not have seen the best of him yet,’’ Waterhouse said. “Savapinski did a huge job jumping up in class against the boys but I think I will give her a break now, along with Fabrizio.’’ When asked the reason for her stable’s tremendous success in recent months, Waterhouse said training partner Adrian Bott’s contribution has been significant.
