On the double: Sam Clipperton, riding ‘Electric Power’ wins Race 4, at Royal Randwick Racecourse.Sam Clipperton will leave for the US on a high after back-to-back Saturday winning doubles in Sydney.
Clipperton kicked home God’s In Him and wet tracker Electric Power at Randwick, where both Josh Parr and apprentice Winona Costin also had two winners.
“It is a good time to be going because I hit a bad patch there for a couple of weeks and I probably needed a freshen up,” Clipperton said.
“I was getting a bit down on myself but then I rode Mogador for Godolphin, which was my first city winner for some time. It picked up my spirits and things have turned around since then. The next day John [O’Shea] told me he thought I should go on a holiday and when someone you trust tells you that you don’t argue.
“I have been riding for six years and it is the first time I’m taking this much time [three weeks] off. I have been excited since I booked the trip and I’m taking my mum and brother. It has freed me up and I think you see that in my riding.”
Clipperton arrived in time on favourite God’s In Him but Electric Power was one he thought he owed trainer Kris Lees and connections.
“I rode her last start and didn’t have much luck on her and thought she would improve. They kept me on her and it was good to see her win.”
Parr bookended the meeting, winning on Backstab in the opener before a patient ride won the final event on Pajaro.
He believes there is more in store for Pajaro.
“He is a bit of an athlete and was going so easy on the turn I just had to wait for the runs to come and when they did he did the rest.”
Timeless Prince’s win in the Winter Dash was the second leg of the Costin’s double after she kicked home Berry Delicious.
Costin brought Timeless Prince with a well-timed run to beat Alias and the Tony Newing-trained five-year-old will head to Brisbane next month.
