Jul 9th 2020  Trumbull chases another stakes victory

Civic Stakes (Listed, 1350m) winner Trumbull (Darci Brahma) will tackle another Rosehill feature when he steps out in Saturday‚Äôs Winter Stakes (Listed, 1400m). Trumbull has proved frustrating for connections with a penchant for missing the start, but the Kim Waugh-trained four-year-old began well under jockey Tommy Berry last start and broke through for a first stakes win. "I couldn't be any happier with him," Waugh said. "He is coping really well. He has had eight starts this preparation but his work is brilliant and he's holding his condition very well, so he's a very happy horse. Tommy got him out very well last start so hopefully he can do the same again on Saturday. It was a well-deserved win last start after a number of close seconds and thirds. He pulled up really bright and well after that and his work has been as good as ever."
