    Steady As A Rock draws Overdose comparisons

    By Neil Clark11.10AM 29 JUN 2009

    Report: Hungary, Sunday

    Kincsem Park (Budapest)

    AS if ‘Budapest Bullet’ Overdose wasn’t enough, Hungarian racing enthusiasts are now toasting another equine sensation in the shape of former Mark Johnston-trained Steady As A Rock.

    On Sunday’s Hungarian Derby card at Kincsem Park, the highly-regarded son of Rock of Gibraltar won his ninth successive race as he scored an emphatic 14-length success in the Buccaneer Dij, a 1,600-metre contest.

    Steady As A Rock won a maiden at Pontefract in May 2006 for Johnston, for whom he was beaten four times as a three-year-old before being purchased by his present connections for just £3,500 at the NewmarketThree-Year-Old sales in 2007.

    After Sunday’s race, the five-year-old’s trainer Sandor Peto mooted the idea of the horse being campaigned in Western Europe, suggesting he had "grown too big" for Kincsem Park.

    His owner, Dr Leticia Ecsedi confirmed that it was "highly likely" that the horse would be on his travels.

    "He will go back to Bratislava for a race on Slovak Derby Day on 19th July," said Ecsedi. "After that we are thinking about a one-mile Listed race in Italy for him."

    Not sure he’s raced in Italy, but he’s been running in Slovakia recently. He won the Listed Bratislava Mile about a month ago, and the horse that was third in that race, the Polish trained Golden Tirol, runs in a decent race at Baden-Baden tomorrow. Might be interesting to see how he gets on.
