God Has Spoken has achieved a complete form reversal that has seen him win the Group 2 CB Cox Stakes at Ascot Racecourse last Saturday December 17, 2011.
The five-year-old gelding has now won eight of his 37 race starts and has earned more than $800,000 in prize money.
The Blackfriars entire won the 2011 CB Cox Stakes by 1.3 lengths ahead of Kincaple and Ranger.
God Has Spoken’s win came as a shock for punters after his disappointing 13th placing in the Listed JRA Trophy last start.
Trainer Neville Parnham said he never doubted his horse could win the 2011 CB Cox Stakes.
“He’s a pretty good horse on his day and I have no doubt the beach work and gear changes helped him,” Parnham said.
“I removed the blinkers and bubble cheeker, which I think may have been causing him to pull, and added winkers and a lugging bit.”
God Has Spoken will now head to the Group 2 Perth Cup on December 31, 2011.
“Bring on the Perth Cup on the minimum weight,” said owner Colin Loxton.
Third place runner Ranger is now in doubt for the Perth Cup 2011 after he was beaten by three and three quarter lengths in the 2011 CB Cox Stakes.
Ranger was the short priced favourite to win the CB Cox Stakes, however, appeared to struggle with the longer distance.
With the 2011 Perth Cup another 30 metres longer than the CB Cox Stakes, Ranger may be saved for a shorter race start.
