Gold Medals has shone through over the concluding stages of the Australian Steeplechase at Sandown

The flat ability of Gold Medals has shone through over the concluding stages of the Australian Steeplechase at Sandown.

In a neck-and-neck struggle from the last jump, Gold Medal ($3.20) prevailed over the $2.80 Sportsbet favourite Zed Em by a long head over Saturday’s 3400m and 11 obstacles.

Marlo Man ($14) was a further 12 lengths away third.

Jockey Shane Jackson said Gold Medal’s flat ability shone through although a big jump at the final obstacle also had a bearing on the result.

“I needed a long jump at that final jump,” Jackson said.

“Maybe he was a little bit low, but he was brave for me.

“If I missed that last I think I get beaten, but then I thought I was going to go away from the second horse, but he kept fighting.

“He’s a tough animal.”

Gold Medal’s victory provided trainer Symon Wilde with his second win in the race following Megapixel’s win in 2012.

Wilde said the victory on Saturday was a huge thrill as Gold Medals is a stable favourite.

Gold Medals won his first race as a two-year-old over 1000m at Warrnambool before graduating to city success on the flat.

He was also a hurdle winner before switching to the bigger jumps when sixth in the Brierly Steeplechase at Warrnambool.

Either side of the Brierly, Gold Medals won the Terang Cup and was a close second in the Casterton Cup.

“He’s the most versatile horse and an absolute stable favourite,” Wilde said.

“I think he’s a great advertisement. A seven-year-old at the peak of his powers who is mixing jumps racing and flat racing.

“We love him and he’s got a home for life when he’s finished racing.”
