he Godolphin homebred, BROADSIDING may have just earned himself the two-year-old Champion honours when landing the Group 1 J J Atkins at Eagle Farm in devasting style.

The son of Too Darn Hot made all when cruising to the front at the 300m pole with very little encouragement from James McDonald. “He keeps raising the bar, but he’s (James Cummings) got a good colt on his hands. He’s special”.

The Group 1 Champagne Stakes and Group 2 Sires’ Produce Stakes winner kept good company to secure a four and a quarter length victory in the JJ  Atkins with the Snitzel colt Bittercreek in second and the Blue Point colt Bosustow in third.

BROADSIDING has now won four races straight and racked up earnings totalling $1,944,675.

Trainer James Cummings described Broadsiding after the race, “He’s what you love to look for in a two-year-old, and yet he’s got that dynamic motor, the way he cruised up into that race was effortless, and James just rode him like he was the best horse in the race – he was full of confidence in the horse.”

“He’s just been so good. He’s been a horse that has been able to keep improving and being by Too Darn Hot out of a Street Cry mare, he’s got his future well and truly assured on the roster at Darley.”

Following BROADSIDING’s victory, TOO DARN HOT has secured the title of highest earning freshman sire of all time in Australia.
