A three-year-old colt who cost just $3000 as a yearling and was described by his trainer Marc Conners as a “dope” early in his career, broke the track record for 1100 metres when winning on debut at Wyong on Thursday.

The aptly-named Didntcostalot, by the young Danehill stallion Danerich, careered away to win Thorn-Nesco-Electra Maiden Plate by 5-1/2 lengths in 62.32 seconds, eclipsing the previous course record of 62.33 seconds set by Rose Of Kings in 2005.

Jockey Jeff Penza let Didntcostalot slide to the lead along the rail after the first 100 metres and he held a slight advantage to the turn.

Once he turned for home Penza gave the colt two backhanders and he scorched away to win unextended.

“There is loads of improvement in him because he did a few things wrong,” Penza said.

“I was on one rein the whole way.

“Once he learns to settle and go straight he could be anything.”

Clarry Conners, the trainer’s father and a man who has won four Golden Slippers, was at Wyong sporting a huge smile.

He was reluctant to comment except to say: “He’s Marc’s horse and he looks like he could be very good.”

Didntcostalot was bought by Vern Rayner from Classic Bloodstock.

“Vern is an outstanding judge and this proves it,” Marc Conners said.

“This horse was quite dumb early, a bit of a dope, but this preparation he has really come of age.

“He trialled very well at Warwick Farm and won easily so we looked for a nice race for him first-up and this fitted the bill.

“We knew he had plenty of ability but we didn’t expect this.

“He still has a lot to learn so I might look for another provincial race and then see where we go with him.

“He could be one of the best horses I have put a bridle on.”
