Tally capped off a remarkable season for Godolphin with a superb win in 1800m Eclipse Stakes at Sandown on Saturday.
The talented son of Street Cry turned around a lapse in his form to clinch victory in Melbourne with a typically courageous performance.
The win was Tally’s eighth in a career that includes G1 placings in the ATC Derby at Randwick and the Turnbull Stakes at Flemington. He also won the G2 Alister Clark Stakes at Moonee Valley as a three-year-old in the autumn of 2016.
“These horses that have had a number of seasons with us, the team develops a great affinity with them,” said Godolphin racing and bloodstock manager Jason Walsh.
“It’s great to see him win another feature Stakes race.”
Tally also became the 17th individual winner of 19 Stakes races for Godolphin in a spring season that began in September and was highlighted by Cross Counter’s scintillating victory in the G1 Melbourne Cup.
The Cup was one of six G1 races won in Australia by the Dubai-based operation over the same period with the Cummings stable collecting two wins (Hartnell and Best Of Days), Saeed bin Suroor recording two victories (Benbatl and Best Solution) and Charlie Appleby clinching wins with Cross Counter and Jungle Cat.
Jockey Craig Williams said: “It seemed to make the difference for him, along with this lovely big track, he really enjoyed himself.
“He’s got nothing more to prove to us.
“He’s a million-dollar Stakes earner, a fantastic horse and one we’re very proud of.”
