Syncretism’s strong success

Promising three-year-old filly Syncretism had to withstand a protest before securing victory at Bendigo on Thursday, November 24.

The daughter of Redoute’s Choice tended to drift out in the home straight but was still first past the post.

Trained by Toby & Calvin McEvoy, Syncretism ($2.35 fav) scored by a long neck from Motitsi ($5) with Delta Sky ($51), 1-1/4 length away third in the bet365 Top Tote Fillies Maiden (1000m).

Ridden by Blake Shinn, Syncretism shared the lead to the home turn before establishing a clear advantage in the home straight.

When Shinn asked for a final burst, the filly tended to drift away from the running rail but still maintained an advantage.

Post-race, the rider of the second horse lodged an objection alleging interference but the protest was dismissed.

Trainer Calvin McEvoy said Syncretism had city potential.

“It was a really good win,” McEvoy said.

“We went to her first start at Geelong very confident. Looking back, we were a bit disappointed, but it turned out to be a decent race and she was probably in the wrong part of the track.

“Today, she has trained on well and I thought it was a tough effort from a filly who is still learning.

“She was strong to the line, still learning, still improving.

“Thanks to David Moodie and the My Racehorse team, good supporters of the stable because she is a filly with a big pedigree and a bit of metropolitan success coming up for her.”

McEvoy said he thought Syncretism was a sprinter.

“She is quite fast, a big scopey filly, and everything she has done at home has shown she is a sprinter. We will probably keep her to shorter trips.

“She looks fantastic and is handling the training well, we will just continue to step her up through her grades.”

Winning jockey Blake Shinn is also impressed by Syncretism.

“Any horse that has got that high speed and puts herself in a position gives herself a chance,” Shinn said.

“She is quite raw.

“I think she started her career in Sydney and getting into the straight she was looking for that Sydney leg.

“She wanted to throw it away but did a good enough job to win and is a progressive horse.

“She wants to please, she has got a good nature on her, and I liked the feel she gave me pre-race going to the gates.

“I think she is a professional type, just got to get the last 400 (metres) right, and she can only improve.”
