Man From Uncle Takes Out Eskimo

By Brad Gray

Anthony Cummings has a reputation for producing big price feature winners, and he was again to the fore with Man From Uncle in the Australian Chinese Jockey Club Eskimo Prince Stakes at Randwick.

The three-year-old son of Uncle Mo showed enough in his first campaign to suggest he is a handy horse but Cummings made no secret after the race about exactly how high he regards the gelding.

Man From Uncle winning at odds!

“The Randwick Guineas would be the perfect race for him, he is still in the race in Melbourne but I think I’m just going to stay here and head towards the home grand final and then make a choice between going onto the Doncaster,” Cummings said.

“When he came out here and he trialled the other day, the top weight (Comin’ Through) was in that trial and we went much better than it I thought. It gave us a fair bit of confidence coming here.

“We took him to Flemington (last campaign) and the trip just improved him out of sight and in the race at Flemington he lost focus a few times. He was out the back, he drew badly and coming around the grandstand, the crowd, the whole deal, he thought ‘what is this all about’.

“I think he is up to Group One standard over the mile but exactly where he finishes after that… I have no doubt that he’ll run 2000m. I think that might finish up being his pet distance.

“He’s just a high quality race horse.”
