Gai Waterhouse’s new iron horse ‘Theseo’ proved he’s definitely at his peak after running away with the Group 1 STC Ranvet Stakes at Rosehill on Saturday.

After being sent out the $2.80 favourite, Theseo appeared to be under pressure in the straight, before holding off second favourite ‘Rangirangdoo’ by three quarters of a length.

Waterhouse has always loved the horse and after winning his fifth Group 1, believes he has reached the upper echelon of racing.

“He has a lovely action and does it at both ends of the race; he’s just a very exciting horse.”

“He moves into the very elite group of my great gallopers – Grand Armee and Desert War are two that flash to mind.”

Jockey Nash Rawiller rode the horse to perfection, and enforced Waterhouse’s views after the race.

“He is such a tough horse, the toughest I’ve ridden,” he said.

“It’s a credit to Gai and all the team.”

A decision is yet to be made whether Theseo will press on to the BMW in two weeks or go to the Doncaster two weeks later. Whatever the target may be, Theseo is sure to be competitive and search for that sixth Group 1 win.

The brave six year old now has earnings of approximately three million dollars and now boasts 10 wins from 33 starts.
