Mister Impatience digs deepest for cup victory

Dour stayer Mister Impatience needed every inch of the two miles to post an upset win in the Gr.2 Wellington Cup.

The proven long distance performer was headed in the straight before he clawed his way back to claim a narrow decision in the Wallaceville Estate-sponsored event at Trentham on Saturday.

Mister Impatience began his career in his native England with leading trainer Mark Johnston and won two races before he was purchased by clients of the Flemington-based Michael Moroney.

The six-year-old showed his staying ability with a 3000 metre victory at Ballarat and subsequently won the Listed Queensland Cup over 3200 metres at the Sunshine Coast last winter.

In the spring, Moroney sent Mister Impatience to his Matamata yard run by Chad Ormsby and the gelding finished fifth in the Gr.3 New Zealand Cup in November.

“It was a good run in the New Zealand Cup and he’d been working well leading up to this,” Ormsby said.

“It’s a big thrill, he’s an honest horse and getting back out to the two miles again suited him.”

Mister Impatience settled into the trail and challenged early in the run home only to be clearly headed by Pentathlon.

“He got a beautiful trip and just lobbed along,” successful rider Sam Spratt said.

“He dug really deeply when I threw everything at him and he is a true stayer.”

Mister Impatience rallied strongly along the fence in the closing 100 metres to earn a nose victory over Pentathlon, who looked set for the thick end of the stake when he took control 300 metres out.

Pacemaker Sampson fought on doggedly for third while the favourite Jimmy Mac was unable to make any impression in the straight and finished sixth. – NZ Racing Desk.
