Gelding has done the trick for the John Thompson-trained Supremo, as the talented galloper broke his maiden with an impressive victory at Warwick Farm on Wednesday.

The son of Written Tycoon had one placing in his five starts before Wednesday but put all that behind him as he bounded away to win by three lengths.

Trainer John Thompson was almost relieved after the victory, saying Supremo has been a different horse this preparation.

“He’s a different horse since he’s been gelded,” he said.

“He’s always shown that he has ability and is obviously well-bred by the ‘super man’ Wilf Mula, out of an Oaks winning mare that’s already produced and Oaks winner, so he’s got a bit of a pedigree.

“He got a very soft lead there and the further the race went, the more confident he got.”

Supremo’s dam Dizelle won the 2005 VRC Oaks, and produced Pinot who won the 2017 edition of the race.

Despite the staying pedigree, Thompson isn’t sure of the three-year-old’s best distance, but he is sure of his ability.

“I don’t know. I’m not sure (on what Supremo’s best distance will be),” he said.

“Being by Written Tycoon maybe something in the middle there, but he’s a nice horse.

“It’s no doubt it (the win) will give him confidence, but he’s been going well and I’m sure he’s destined for better things.”

Supremo’s win carried on Rachel King’s great form, as she notched up her sixth win from her last 50 rides, including a double at the Kensington track on Anzac Day.

King said it wasn’t her intentions to go forward, but the gelding will benefit from the run.

“There wasn’t a stack of other speed on paper, so I was quite happy to let him amble forward in his own comfort zone”, she said.

“the main thing was just making sure he did the first half right so he’s able to do the second half.

“He’s always had that ability and we’ve always known that, but it was just about getting him to race right and do things the right way around and gelding him certainly helped.

“He’ll definitely improve from the run.”

Supremo was Thompson’s only runner on the day, as King finished with a winner and a second from her five rides.
