Tiger Tees has won the Group 3 Concorde Stakes, which took place at Warwick Farm Racecourse on Saturday September 8, 2012.
The Dubawi gelding won the race by an incredible three lengths ahead of Mrs Onassis, who placed second, and Satin Shoes, who finished in third.
Tiger Tees has won nine of his 13 race starts and has earned more than $390,000 in prize money.
The five-year-old beat his favoured stable mate Rain Affair in the 2012 Concorde Stakes, who finished in fourth.
Trainer Joe Pride was over the moon with Tiger Tees’ win, however, was concerned with the Rain Affair’s unusual result.
”I was just hoping that they would both return in great order,” Pride said.
”One (Tiger Tees) has done exceptionally and the other, well, he was disappointing.
”I have no doubt that Rain Affair needs it further and the track to be a bit firmer, but he is such an honest horse I’m worried about what I saw.”
Peter Robl, who was aboard Tiger Tees for his 2012 Concorde Stakes win, was impressed with the effort.
“I knew I had them coming to the turn,” Robl said.
”He has come back better after every spell and he has definitely taken another step this preparation.”
Rain Affair has now won 11 of his 16 race starts and has earned more than $1 million in prize money during his career.
The Commands gelding will now be closely watched as he continued what was expected to be a successful spring campaign.
