Endless Drama Wins the Apollo Stakes

Endless Drama was acquired in 2016, and immediately become part of the Waller gallopers. Unfortunately, he fractured his hind hock during Doncaster race and was kept off the track.  The group 1 racehorse helped Chris Waller to win the Apollo Stakes without Winx. The trainer was happy to get the horse to win the race after recovering from an injury. He said that it did not take long to train the horse and he knew that he would do well.

Waller noted that the horse needs 3-4 weeks rest between runs if you want him to do well. As a result, Waller said that they would try to space his runs as they work their way to Doncaster. In the last years Apollo stakes, the horse came third after Winx and Hartnell. This was thought to be his best contest in Australia.

The horse was ridden by Angland who at some point, was surprised to see Global Glamour running freely in front.  Endless Drama, made a few kicks in front, a thing that helped him secure a few lengths at the top. Tyre Angland said that at some point, he thought that other horses would come from behind but the horse ran down a game on Global glamour in the straights. It helped him to beat Global Glamour by a long head and also beat stablemate Comin’ by a head.

On the other hand, Rachel King had an early burn and observed that her goal was to take the lead in the last 50 meters. Unfortunately, her horse was slow at jumping and had to take some strides to muster.  However, it appeared that she had burnt her energy during the start making it difficult for her to win despite trying her heart out.

Comin’ Through who was racing for the first time as a gelding charged from the back and Jason Collett thought that he would win by the 200m mark. He thought he had caught up with them in the last 100m, but this was not the case. He remained positive that the horse would perform well in future.

Endless Drama has had mixed fortunes since he arrived from Qatar. He spent most of his time off the track while recovering from a hook injury. The $4.20 favorite showed mixed talent which made him the best group one performer when he beat Global Glamour ($5) by a long head. Comin’ finished third.
