Savatiano scores her sixth Stakes win in G2 Hot Danish at Rosehill

Mike Hedge

A return to softer ground in Sydney opened the door to a return to form by Savatiano in the G2 Hot Danish Stakes at Rosehill on Saturday, 7 November.

Savatiano had failed on firmer tracks in Melbourne at her previous two outings, but in the heavy going at Rosehill she showed the form that has won her six Stakes races and more than $2 million.

"Those tracks were too firm for her the last two starts and she just won't let go," Cummings said.

"The guys at Osborne Park have done great at getting her back and convincing me to keep her going and not to tip her out and wait for next year.”

"Without winning a Group One, this horse has won over $2 million in prize money, which is a wonderful credit to the prize money that owners everywhere in this country are privileged enough to race for."

Jockey Jason Collett had Savatiano on the back of the leaders for most of the journey, dashing to the front at the 200m and holding on strongly to beat Tricky Gal by a half-length.

The daughter of Street Cry could now attempt to repeat her victory of last year in the $1 million The Hunter at Newcastle next Saturday.

As an alternative Cummings said he would consider an autumn program which could include races in three states, culminating in the G1 Stradbroke Handicap in Brisbane.
