Newing's Lone Runner Social Pirate To Sail Home

By Geoff Newling Gosford trainer Tony Newing heads to Tamworth on Monday with just the one runner – Social Pirate – and a truck load of fond memories for a timely retirement for a Tamworth Cup winner. Newing won the 2017 Tamworth Cup with Timeless Prince one of 12 career wins; 10 of which came on different tracks! The eight-year-old gelding son of Casino Prince had 71 starts for 12 wins and 17 placings, amassing $554,440 in prizemoney for Newing and co-owner Steve Clarke. Timeless Prince cost Newing just $8000 as an unraced two-year-old at a Patinack Dispersal Sale. “He was a nice, neat little horse, not overly big but in our budget,” Tony Newing said. “He was a dream horse. A stepping stone for us.” When he came along Newing had just four horses in work and trying to reignite his training career. Today he has 14 in work and looking to have 20 by year’s end. He paid a great tribute to his “little horse” who loved nothing better to sit back, get to the outside and rattle home. “That was his racing pattern,” Newing conceded. “But he won his maiden race at Taree when he led all the way!” He said Timeless Prince was the “gutsiest horse to greet our hands” and has a record not many can match – winning on 10 different tracks and racing in three states. He won a Listed Sunshine Coast Cup as well as four metropolitan Saturday races at Eagle Farm, Rosehill and Randwick (2). He won a Tamworth Cup and Country Cups at Newcastle and Scone as well as another four races on country tracks: “Without his efforts it is certain I would not be training today,” Newing said. While Tamworth holds a special place because it is one of two tracks where he has won twice he also recalls the Scone Country Cup win. "That was exciting,” he said. “That was the first feature race we had with him. It was when we knew we had a serious race horse on our hands.” Timeless Prince is now spelling before beginning his new career as an eventing horse. “To the little bulldog, we salute you and good luck in the future you were a star,” Tony added. As for Monday he believes Social Pirate will run a nice race in the $20,000 Tamworth City Toyota Class 1 Handicap (1400m). It is one of eight races on the TAB program with the track currently rated a Good 4. View the final fields with full form & race replays for Tamworth here
