It's Somewhat Wins Gr2 Ajax Stakes

Monday, 13th March 2017

At Rosehill Gardens in Sydney, Godolphin's imported US-bred 6YO gelding It's Somewhat (Dynaformer-Sometime, by Royal Academy) dug deep to score by 0.2-length for trainer John O'Shea in the $200,000 Gr2 Ajax Stakes (1500m), over 4YO gelding New Tiperrary (High Chaparral-Assertiveness, by Danehill) & never-say-die 5YO gelding Testashadow (Testa Rossa-Moonlight Shadow, by Flying Spur). Given a patient ride by Godolphin's fly-in hoop William Buick (who registered a black-type double) It's Somewhat has been a model of consistency of late, taking his record to 6 wins (including the Gr2 Ajax Stakes, Gr3 Neville Sellwood Stakes & Gr3 Liverpool City Cup) 9 placings (including the Gr1 Coral Eclipse, Gr2 Royal Lodge Stakes & Gr3 Gordon Stakes) from 28 starts for $999,429 earnings. Trainer John O'Shea suggested that It's Somewhat is headed to the Gr1 Doomben Cup, a race in which he finished third last year.
