Champion jockey James McDonald piloted the two-year-old to a comfortable victory, securing his 98th career Group 1 win and 19th for the season.

Broadsiding ($1.60F), a Too Darn Hot colt, dominated the $1 million Ladbrokes JJ Atkins (1600m) after claiming the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) in Sydney earlier this year.

This win marks Broadsiding’s fourth consecutive victory, adding to his recent triumph in the Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) just two weeks ago.

McDonald expertly guided Broadsiding from a favourable barrier two position, settling him comfortably in fifth place before making his move.

With a powerful surge around the final bend, Broadsiding took the lead with 300 meters remaining and pulled away for a decisive win.

“He’s what you love to look for in a two-year-old,” said winning trainer James Cummings celebrating his 49th career Group 1 victory

“He’s got that dynamic motor.

“He’s a colt I think deserves a lot of praise.”

Broadsiding ($1.60) finished a clear four and a quarter lengths ahead of runner-up Bittercreek ($9), a Snitzel colt trained by Leon & Troy Corstens.

Rounding out the trifecta was Annabel Neasham‘s Blue Point colt Bosustow ($26), who held on for third after a determined run throughout the race.

Cummings commended both Broadsiding and McDonald, praising the jockey’s masterful handling of the horse.

“James was so good, he was determined to get that good spot,” he said.

“He rode the horse magnificently.”

Attention now turns to Broadsiding’s next challenge, as he emerges as a serious contender for the prestigious Group 1 $5 million Ladbrokes Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley in October.

Early all-in odds at Ladbrokes already have Broadsiding listed at $10 for the win.
