Another winner for the Darley team today with Helmet winning the 2011 Sires Produce Stakes.

A market mover in the betting ring, Helmet sat on the speed alongside Uate and they ran the quinella with Pane In The Glass flying home for third.

Rated a potential Golden Slipper colt, Helmet lost his way in the lead-up to the rich race because of his barrier manners.

His campaign was turned upside down when he was scratched at the barrier before the VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes.

“He’s a bit of a larrikin still but he’s an exciting young horse,” jockey Kerrin McEvoy said.

“It was five weeks between runs today but it’s been a good job by the (Darley) team.”

The victory gives trainer Peter Snowden, Darley and McEvoy the second leg of Sydney’s autumn triple crown for two-year-olds after Sepoy’s Golden Slipper triumph last week.

Helmet began on terms with his rivals and parked outside the leader Uate.

The leading pair had the 1400-metre race to themselves a long way out with Helmet gaining the upper hand over the last 100 metres.

Uate held on bravely to finish second with Pane In The Glass running on late from the back to gain the minor placing in front of Shared Reflections.

Snowden said Helmet would now take his place in Saturday week’s final triple crown leg – the Group One Champagne Stakes at Randwick.
