New York Thunder made a mockery of his opening price as he ran out a dominant winner of the 2023 Amsterdam Stakes to land the biggest prize of his career.

With Ryvit expected to take up the early running, the script was flipped as he stumbled out of the gate, allowing New York Thunder a clear passage to the front.

Able to dictate the early proceedings, his nearest rival was Drew’s Gold. 

With the two burning up the track, they quickly distanced themselves from the rest of the field. Drew’s Gold threatened to overtake New York Thunder as they rounded the final turn, but would find the door quickly closed. 

Despite the frenetic early pace, New York Thunder was clearly still full of running and his jockey Tyler Gaffalione asked him to go and win his race. Kicking clear as he hit the home straight, he set sail for home and left his rivals in the dust.

Stretching further and further clear, he would go onto win by seven widening lengths. A Grade 1 appearance is bound to be next on the cards. 

Deer District would rally from a long way back to steal second from the fast fading Drew’s Gold.
