It wouldn’t be a feature race day in Sydney without Gai Waterhouse and Nash Rawiller combining for a winner.

And that is exactly what occurred in race 2 with race favourite Needs Further taking out the Carbine Club Stakes in impressive style. The Darley trained Divorces finished in second whilst roughie Shawdows In The Sun stuck on well for third.

Gai Waterhouse labelled Needs Further a horse of the future and Nash Rawiller believes the colt could be a serious spring contender after an impressive Carbine Club Stakes win on Saturday.

Needs Further’s 1-1/4-length victory in the Group Three mile feature at Randwick was his third straight win this campaign after more than a year on the sidelines.

The lightly-raced three-year-old has taken giant strides through the grades and connections will now decide whether to press on to the Group Three Frank Packer Plate (2000m) in two weeks and then the Queensland winter carnival or send him for a spell and wait for the spring.

“He’s a very exciting horse in the making, you don’t go through your grades from winning a maiden to midweek and then to a Group race if you’re not a good horse,” Waterhouse said.

“We’ll have a talk about what we do with him now, we haven’t set a plan yet because we were just concentrating on this race.

“Queensland is not out of the question.”

Rawiller had the heavily-backed Needs Further ($2.70) positioned just behind the leader Shadows In The Sun and Sydney’s leading jockey was confident the favourite was going to win a long way out.

Needs Further moved up to hit the front topping the rise in the straight and went on to defeat Divorces ($7.50) with Shadows In The Sun ($15) holding on to finish another half-neck away in third.

“He travelled so well and he’s a lovely horse with a really big future,” Rawiller said.

“If he went out now I reckon he’d come back the real deal in the spring.

“But then again he probably still needs to achieve a bit more to get into some of those better races.”

The Bart Cummings-trained Kudakulari was the $4.80 second favourite on the back of his first-up win the Canberra Guineas but he was never in the hunt and finished more than seven lengths behind the winner in 10th.

“He didn’t have a lot of luck between the 600 metres and the 400 metres but that’s still no excuse,” Kudakulari’s jockey Corey Brown said.

“When he got clear running he only plodded.”
