Another Sin Lands Highway Plonk

By Brad Gray At Rosehill Gardens

Brett Cavanough-trained debutant I Am Sin prevailed in an epic TAB Highway Handicap duel battling it out with Lifesaver. If that wasn’t enough for punters sweat over, he also had to survive a protest.

As much as $14 was bet with TAB Fixed Odds about the son of Duporth before he jumped as $3.20. I Am Sin bounced straight to the front and showed good fight at the finish to deny Matt Dunn another Highway win.

“You can hide them and think they are good but you’ve got to go to the races with them to find out. He got emptied out today with the big horse (Lifesaver) laying all over him in the straight. That’ll clean him up and it showed him how to hit the line,” said Cavanough.

“He is just a baby so we’ll just see where we end up from today. We’ll take him home and worry about the rest later.”

Cavanough had previously run second on six occasions in Highway Handicaps which was part the inspiration for the unconventional preparation.

“We’d run out of ammunition and I kept running second so I chose to produce him and today was the day. We found the right Highway,” Cavanough said.

“He has shown us a lot all the way through and with the rail out, everything added up.

“He is only a little bloke. We gelded him as he got quite cheeky so he has been in and out. He is pretty well educated.”

Cavanough revealed that he originally had plans to target the rich Magic Millions Classic with I Am Sin but he went shin sore so his two-year-old plans were aborted.

Corey Brown was adamant that he was always going to hold the second placed Lifesaver before suggesting that I Am Sin still has plenty to learn.

“Brett ran me a couple of weeks ago to let me know about this horse to get down to 53kg. It was definitely worthwhile. He’s a lovely horse but doesn’t know a lot,” Brown said.
