Trainer Darren Beadman has revealed that Impending was only a 50 – 50 chance of running last Saturday before winning the Group 1 $1.5m Stradbroke Handicap (1350m) at Doomben.

Impending had to pass a vet’s check when he arrived at the races at Doomben on Saturday after shifting a shoe on Friday and suffering some minor hoof injury.

Beadman praised the effort of his travelling assistant Brett ‘Lofty’ Killion after he treated the problem hoof with ice on Friday night which was able to get Impending to the races to collect Beadman’s first Group 1 win as a trainer.

“We thought this was a great race for him, he’d worked so well over the past two weeks, but after the draw I knew it was going to be tough,” Beadman said.

“There were a couple of other issues as well in the lead up, he trod on his shoe and pulled it off and Brett Killion who looks after him spent most of the past 24 hours icing his foot so we could get him to the start. It’s been a huge team effort.”

“That’s the type of work that goes into winning these type of races. It was 50-50. He had a bit of a pulse in his foot.”

“Anyway we got him there and we trotted him up for the vets at the races just to make sure.”

Godolphin’s Australian managing director Henry Plumptre said that he would discuss the Impending’s Spring Carnival campaign with Beadman and incoming head trainer James Cummings in the near future with the Group 1 sprints high on the agenda.

The major sprints over the 2017 Spring Carnival that will come under notice will be the $10m The Everest (1200m) at Randwick on October 14 and the Group 1 $1m Manikato Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley and the Group 1 $1m Darley Classic (1200m) at Flemington during the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

James Cummings has been appointed the new head trainer for Godolphin for the start of the new racing season which kicks off in August and Beadman will drop back to the assistant trainer’s roll and help Cummings ease into his new position.

Beadman rode well over forty Group 1 winners throughout his illustrious career as a jockey and was inducted into the Australian Racing Hall Of Fame in 2007 for his achievements in the saddle.

The champion jockey’s time in the saddle was cut short after he suffered a career ending injury in a fall at Sha Tin in 2012 when riding for leading Hong Kong trainer John Moore.

Beadman then took up a position as assistant trainer with John O’Shea with Godolphin’s Australian Racing stables and then ended up as interim head trainer when O’Shea retired from the position in May.

    Other then that, great blog!

  23. make certain asbestos

    Hello would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    I appreciate you taking the time and effort to put this informative article together.

  29. Luiz Gastão Bittencourt

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?|

  30. Itamar Serp

    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?
    My website addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and
    I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.

    If you might be interested feel free to shoot
    me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by the way!

  33. Carlos Eduardo Veiga

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?|

  34. Carlos Eduardo Correa da Veig

    Howdy! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I had to
    ask. Does running a well-established website like
    yours take a large amount of work? I am completely new to blogging
    however I do write in my diary everyday. I’d like to start
    a blog so I will be able to share my own experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers.
