Aurora’s Symphony, trained by Symon Wilde, clinched yet another cup victory in Tasmania by triumphing in yesterday’s Group 3 Hobart Cup (2400m).

The seven-year-old gelding, sired by Glass Harmonium out of Aurora’s Hot by Fantastic Light, showcased his dominance once more, adding to his previous wins in the Group 3 Launceston Cup (2400m) in 2022 and 2023, as well as consecutive triumphs in the Colac Cup (2000m).

Aurora’s Symphony asserted his superiority by a comfortable margin of two and three-quarter lengths over Wyclif, with Grand Pierro just a nose further behind in third place.

“It worked out perfectly for us, there was really good speed early, we were able to get into a nice spot just off the fence when passing the winning post for the first time,” jockey Jordan Childs said post-race.

“He got into a lovely rhythm and from the 600 metres I was able to build into it and once I let him go he really quickened up well.

“Simon and the team have certainly got this horse flying.”
