Not A Single Cent claimed victory in the VRC Sires' Produce Stakes

A calculated decision to bypass shorter races with Not A Single Cent has landed the two-year-old an important victory at Flemington.

Having his second race start, Not A Single Cent finished powerfully over the final 100m to claim victory in Saturday’s Group Two VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes.

Ridden by Mark Zahra, Not A Single Cent ($9.50) scored a half-length win from Seberate ($9.50) with Akkadian ($17) the same margin away third.

Trainer Aaron Purcell said it was almost pointless tackling shorter races with the colt, a half-brother to Group One winner Happy Clapper.

“We held him back until the two-year-old races got a bit further before we produced him,” Purcell said.

“We ran him at 1200 metres first-up which we thought would bring him on to this race which we always had in mind.

“He’s a big strong colt. He’s been in work quite a while and has handled his work really well and everything’s worked out well today.

“He gives us the impression he’ll run 2000 metres in the spring and the 1400 is the shortest trip that he’ll be effective at.”

Purcell said Not A Single Cent was likely to head to Sydney where the Group One double of the AJC Sires’ Produce and the Champagne Stakes are likely targets.

However Purcell won’t be training the colt for that Group One double as Ciaron Mahar will return from a six-month suspension in early April.

He said the Group One Vinery Stud Stakes on March 31 at Rosehill which Aloisia is being aimed at was likely to be his last Group One runner before Mahar resumes control.
