JOCKEY Robbie Dolan was the first to put his hands up and admit nothing worked out when Seneschal was three wide the trip last start.
But he made amends with a perfect ride, saving ground along the inside, when Seneschal broke through at his third start for the stable at Eagle Farm on Saturday (February 17).
Trainer Stuart Kendrick said the horse had absolutely thrived since arriving in Queensland after being purchased via an online sale.
“His first-up run was excellent. He was very unlucky the other day (second-up),” Kendrick said.
“Robbie came in and put his hands up and said it was just a mess,” he said.
“But he couldn’t have ridden him any better today, so he’s made up for it, that’s for sure.”
Seneschal, backed in from $18 to $11, won a Benchmark 68 (1400m).
He raced in about sixth spot before saving ground on the fence and proving too strong in the run to the line.
Kendrick has had some recent success with horses bought online.
“If you can hunt around in those sales, there are always some nice horses, especially when you can bring them out of that Sydney form back up here,” he said.
He’s a well-bred horse. He’s by Kingman.
“Today he had the perfect run, slipped up on the inside, and got the result.
“He looks a nice horse for here.”
