Sea Lord Swims to Victory on Cup Day

 
The 2015 Listed MSS Security Sprint (1200m) saw the Stephen Brown trainerd Sea Lord salute on Melbourne Cup Day.

Two years after going down by the barest of margins at a huge price in the same race, Sea Lord took advantage of a great ride from Dom Tourneur and the cut out of the track to make amends.

"I think we nearly pulled the biggest plunge of my career here two years ago at 66-1 and only got beaten by a lip by Richie's Vibe but he's done the job today,” Brown said post race.

And the Flemington-based trainer's faith in the Street Cry gelding has been present for some time.

"I think the blinkers did the trick, and thanks to Dom. I think the track today is running to his liking as well - a bit of sting out of it," Brown said post-race of Sea Lord, who could not be caught late despite the attempts of Gregers and The Monstar.

The win was Sea Lords 4th black type success with his biggest win coming in the Group 2 Australia Stakes. The eight-year-old gelding has now won $736,960 in prizemoney for managing owner Peter Jones and partners.

“Given he is a bit older now I will give him a short rest but he is perfectly healthy and loving it,” added Brown.
