Widdup Continues To Accumulate Winners

Hawkesbury trainer Brad Widdup has been accumulating winners since launching his career only a few months ago.

Now he’s ready to start accumulating black type successes.

Widdup prepares talented filly Acqume, who was responsible for a most impressive performance at Warwick Farm on Wednesday, showing that she is ready to step up to stakes company. With Josh Parr aboard, Acqume ($5) made it two wins from only four starts in the Benchmark 71 Handicap (1200m).

Showing a good turn of foot in the straight, she was clearly too good for roughies Legal Girl ($91) and Bella Success ($31). Acqume was her trainer’s 11th winner from only 34 starts, and he was understandably thrilled with the Sepoy filly’s performance.

“She is a beautiful filly, and her fitness is getting there,” Widdup said.

“I’ve probably been a bit soft on her to get her in the back end of these nice fillies’ races.

“We waited for this race, and it came up pretty strong. But we knew what we had.”

Winning rider Parr was just as effusive in his praise of Acqume.

“She has progressively got better, and has come a long way mentally,” he said. “There’s no doubt she has the ability.”

Whilst it was all smiles in the Widdup camp, fellow Hawkesbury trainer Scott Singleton was downcast after his $2.70 favorite Alluvion finished last of five runners in the Benchmark 77 Handicap (1300m). As a result, she will head to the spelling paddock.

A subsequent veterinary examination revealed Alluvion to be sore in front after her race.
