Zamex Zooms Past Highway Rivals

By Brad Gray At Rosehill Gardens

Zamex produced a stunning last to first victory at Rosehill Gardens to take out consecutive TAB Highway Handicaps and earn himself a shot at a Group assignment.

The three-year-old gelding was snagged back in the field from the wide gate and despite looking like he was spotting the leaders an impossible start, he reeled them in courtesy of a cool Tye Angland ride.

Zamex still gave the leaders five lengths at the 200m mark

“He is very slow learning and still putting it all together. We’ve been really patient with him up until now so there is no reason why he won’t keep going through the grades,” said Kiera Dunn, Matthew Dunn’s assistant trainer.

“Tye is perfect for him because he doesn’t panic. He just lets it happen.”

Zamex stayed in Sydney for the past fortnight having taken out a 1400m Highway Handicap at his last outing. Another box the gelding by Cheval de Troy, who is a son of Zabeel, ticked was the wet track.

“We’ve stayed down here since last time so it’s been a long couple of weeks but well worth it.”

“When we galloped on the grass on Tuesday and they worked the quickest of the morning so we were pretty confident that he’d be able to handle it but it nice to see him actually do it.”

The stable, who collected their ninth Highway Handicap, levelling up with the Matt Dale stable, are now eying off the Group Three Sunshine Coast Guineas with Angland suggesting Zamex wouldn’t be out of his depth.

“He is just a horse that is getting better each time and he’ll have no problem winning at Saturday grade,” Angland said.

“(Today) it was just about keeping him balanced and his mind on the job because I knew the ability was there.”
