Well deserved victory

A perfect ride by Harry Coffey saw One Out break through for a well-deserved victory at Seymour on Friday, September 1.

After minor placings at his past four runs, the Tony & Calvin McEvoy-trained One Out scored comfortably in the Peter Lennox Mercedes Handicap (2221m).

A well backed $2.35 favourite, the four-year-old, despite switching off late, had 1-3/4 lengths to spare from the pacemaker Brilliant Venture ($6) with Tripoli ($31), a neck away third.

One Out jumped well but Coffey fought him early to ensure he settled fourth in the run.

There was good speed which saw the gelding settle nicely before the jockey asked him to improve with 600 metres to travel.

One Out quickly gathered in the leader, established his superiority past the 200 and scored comfortably.

Trainer Tony McEvoy said it had been a well-deserved win.

“He has been running really well,” McEvoy said.

“The ownership group has stayed strong, it has been a long road.

“It was a really good effort today, the leader made it a true staying test.

“His first time out to 2200m, with a bit of give in the ground, and they were out on their feet late, including him.

“But he did a great job, I thought it was a very strong performance.

“It was a beautiful piece of jockeyship by Harry (Coffey).”

McEvoy said it had been made special by a good group of owners in attendance to witness the victory.

“That is what it is all about (seeing owners at the races).

“They have deserved the win, lovely people and great supporters and supportive of the way we are training the horse.

“It was a pleasure to deliver them a win.”

Winning jockey Harry Coffey said One Out had given him a good ride.

“It was good for me as I was following (fellow jockey) Billy Egan,” Coffey said.

“So not only was I following a good rider, it was one of my main competitors.

“I actually thought he might take me further into the race, but the fact the leader rolled along and broke us up a bit made it survival of the fittest.

“My bloke got on the scene and got the job done.

“He got a nice run, and as I said, it was survival of the fittest.

“The stable did a great job to present him today, and he showed he was the fittest.

“He hit the front and had a good look around, so I had to keep his mind on the job.

“He pricked his ears and was waiting for the pack, but he will get good confidence from the win.”
