Despite being yet to taste anything but success, Russian Revolution was forgotten in Roman Consul Stakes betting markets as punters focused their attention on Astern and Golden Slipper winner Capitalist.

Jumping from the gates well, Russian Revolution was immediately led to the front of the field by jockey Kerrin McEvoy and settled into a good rhythm alongside Mount Panorama.

Hugging the rails rounding onto the final straight, the Snitzel colt mustered a big turn of foot and pulled comfortably clear of his rivals; maintaining a strong-enough sprint to beat a fast finishing Astern by half a length.

McEvoy delivered a perfectly-timed ride aboard Russian Revolution to win the Roman Consul Stakes and believes the horse will only improve from the run.

“He’s been improving all the time and he pleased leading into it,” McEvoy said.

“I know it wasn’t just a two horse race and we looked the only speed in the race with Gai’s horse coming out.

“I was able to get it easy through the first three furlongs and then just picked it up and they had to catch me.

“Full credit to the horse, he’s done a great job. It was all guns blazing last 50 but as I said, he’s a quality little colt in his own right and his best is ahead of him for sure.”

Peter Snowden was on hand for Russian Revolution’s impressive win in the Roman Consul Stakes and confirmed that the horse will travel to Melbourne for a tilt at the 2016 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) on Derby Day.

“He did what everyone was frightened today, he led from the front so full credit to him – he beat them fair and square,” Snowden said.

“He ran a great time and there’s no fluke in that, he’s a very talented horse.

“It was pretty obvious we’d lead from that draw and that’s why I elected to run him in this race and not the open race. I just thought he could dictate this race from the front.

“He relaxed really well and he was very good late too, so plenty of upside to a very good colt. Great to see him get that victory over two very smart runners behind him.

“I think the Coolmore is definitely on the cards for Russian Revolution.”

Russian Revolution has posted four wins from as many starts since making his debut in June of this year.

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your website?
    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 one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform
    you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    What’s up friends, its fantastic post about educationand completely explained, keep it up all the time.

  35. Lelio Vieira Carneiro Junior

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.

    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Cheers

    Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider worries that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
