Brave Favourite On Song

By Brad Gray
At Royal Randwick

Don’t let the half-length margin have you dismiss Brave Song as a smart horse. That’s just him.

The three-year-old Your Song colt was heavily supported to start $1.55 with TAB Fixed Odds and the punter’s elect never looked in danger with Glyn Schofield stalking the leaders throughout.


Brave Song did it easily in the end

But where to now for Brave Song?

“That’s the problem. He keeps winning. We’re off season at the moment but we’re starting to head into a carnival,” said co-trainer Paul Snowden. “These things will have to be mapped out in the next six weeks or so but at the moment while he is still in good form and there are races around for him we’ll keep him going.”

“He keeps winning and winning pretty softly. He is a bull and still learning so he’s not going to put three (lengths) on a field but if you made him do it he probably would. He has got a great physique about him. He certainly looks the part, he just needs to keep lifting the bar.

“Physically he is there but he just has to put it all together to be the full package.”

Snowden went on to praise the patient ride of Schofield before revealing that the race had played out exactly as the stable had planned.

“I thought Glyn rode him extremely well. He just bided his time. We reflected on his last defeat before a spell (and thought) he might be a horse that needs to be saved up for one last strong finishing burst. He was ridden accordingly today,” said Snowden.

Glyn Schofield added, “Lovely horse. Lovely win and quite soft in the end.”

“His three wins have been quite eye catching but he still has a lot to learn. He didn’t put them away today but he could have if I dropped him one, two of three. He would have been a little bit stronger.”
