Broadside led from start to finish to record an upset win in the 2017 Newcastle Cup this afternoon.
Tim Clark elected to take Broadside straight to the front in the early stages of the Newcastle Cup and he ensured that the race was run at a genuine tempo.
Broadside looked like a sitting duck at the top of the straight and the pre-favourite Pacodali loomed on the outside, but Broadside kept on finding and Paccodali was one of the first horses beaten.
Auvray stormed home down the outside, but he was unable to run down Broadside, who returned to his best form after he finished at the tail of the field in the Premier’s Cup at Rosehill Gardens on August 26.
Trainer Adrian Bott was delighted to see Broadside bounce back from his tough first-up run and he confirmed that Broadside would head to the Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m) before potentially heading to Melbourne for the Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) and the Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m).
