Sweet It Is returned to form on Saturday (October 11) night at Wentworth Park, taking out the Group 3 Bohemia Crystal Sydney Cup (720m).
Jumping the pre race favourite, the Darren McDonald prepared stayer was able to position well mid race and challenge early leaders Zipping Maggie and Space Star in the final stages.
Claiming victory in 41.84, over Zipping Maggie and Space Star, Sweet It Is won by 3 ½ lengths to claim the $25,000 winner’s purse.
Speaking after the race, trainer Darren McDonald said he was pleased to see Sweet It Is return to form.
Sweet It Is will now prepare for the Group 1 Bold Trease at Sandown in November. NSW runners Space Star and Tears Siam are also believed to be heading to Victoria to continue their staying careers.
