“Three (in a row) would be too much to ask for. I'm going to lap up today. Big congrats to (son) Paul. He has helped me a lot with the horse,” said co-trainer Peter Snowden.

“From the 1 gate, that was Plan A, to control it from the front,” winning jockey Kerrin McEvoy told the Daily Telegraph. “That's what this horse is able to do. He loved the ground and is such a little warrior. He is a joy to be a part of.”

Redzel's career earnings are now Au$15,372,000 (US$10,937,000), passing Makybe Diva's $14,526,690 to move into second on the all-time prizemoney list behind Winx with $19,884,924.
