Boom Time was run down in the shadows of the post

Lindsay Park co-trainer Tom Dabernig has been left deflated after Caulfield Cup winner Boom Time was denied a first-up victory at Flemington.

Having his first run since running 12th in the Japan Cup last November, Boom Time was run down in the shadows of the post by Tarquin in Saturday’s Living Legend RE “Mick” Mallyon Handicap.

After drawing barrier three, Boom Time was forced to race three wide for the majority of Saturday’s 1800m contest.

After hitting the lead inside the final 200m, Boom Time tried valiantly under Fred Kersley but couldn’t hold off the late burst from Tarquin.

“(Kersley) said he got pushed around and the next thing he was pushed three deep,” Dabernig said.

“So he let him slide forward on that massive sweeping bend, which in the end proved too hard.

“It was a winning performance but unfortunately he hasn’t won.

“We’re not disappointed in the horse, just disappointed in the result but those things happen from time to time.

“It’s one that got away.”

Dabernig said Boom Time could return to Flemington on May 19 for a 2000m race before another break on his way to attempting back-to-back Caulfield Cup wins.

Boom Time is being treated as one of Lindsay Park’s European imports after undergoing a quarantine stint at Newmarket in England last year before his return to Australia following the Japan Cup.

Tarquin’s victory was his first since winning over 2000m as a three-year-old at Caulfield in April 2016.

Ridden by Daniel Stackhouse, Tarquin ($7.50) beat Boom Time ($5.50) by a head, with Quick Defence ($9.50) a length away third.

Reg Fleming, the Melbourne foreman for Godolphin trainer James Cummings, said the victory was overdue.

“That was really good as Tarquin is a bit of a favourite of the stable,” Fleming said.

“Daniel rode him well today after he could have been a bit better ridden last time.

“Anyway he made up for it today.”

Fleming said the stable had no special plans for Tarquin.

“Hopefully we can find another race that he can win,” Fleming said.
