Russian Revolution overcame a great deal of drama to claim a maiden Group 1 victory in the 2017 The Galaxy at Rosehill Gardens this afternoon.

Russian Revolution was extremely well-backed in the lead-up to The Galaxy, but punters that had taken the short-price were left reeling as the horse sweated-up and lost a shoe in the lead-up to the Group 1 event.

The Snitzel colt overraced badly throughout The Galaxy and Redzel looked as though he had the race won, but Russian Revolution kept on finding the line in the final stages and he fought-off his stablemate to win the race.

Co-trainer Paul Snowden admitted that he lost plenty of confidence leading into The Galaxy and he was clearly relived that the three-year-old had been able to get the job done on the track.

“It was very frustrating when you see those sort of things happen,” Snowden said.

“It all ended well, so who cares.

“We knew that the weight was going to kick in at some stage and it did in the last 100 yards, which was probably the only difference at the end of the day.

“Both horses have run terrific and we couldn’t have asked for any better.

“He nearly threw the rider yesterday and he threw her this morning, so we have been handling him with kid gloves over the past 72 hours.

“He has been ready to go and he has been that full of himself, but everything that could go wrong did and it happened again.

“He has got away with it and this will tone him down now, so he will be right.”

Jockey Kerrin McEvoy admitted after the race that not everything went right during The Galaxy, but he was quick to pay credit to another outstanding training performance from Team Snowden.

“They have delivered him her first-up against the older horses,” McEvoy said.

“He had the weight pull, but he had to do it the hard way and I was four deep the trip.

“I asked him for a supreme effort over the last 100 metres and the horse dug deep.

“His star is on the rise.

“That run will settle him down and he is only going to improve into this prep.

“He might go to the TJ now and you will see a better horse there as well.”

Redzel capped off the Team Snowden quinella and Jungle Edge ran out of skin to finish third.
