Following Saturday metropolitan-grade victories at and , Yulong January landed his first win on a city track, taking out the Yuletide Handicap (1400m).

Ridden by , Yulong January was backed from $1.90 to $1.70 before defeating ($14) by two lengths with ($6) a long-neck away third.

, who trains in partnership with , said Yulong January had a great attitude and loved his work which in turn has produced the recent results on the race track.

“He's probably racing at the right time of the year,” Eustace said.

“We had the opportunity of racing with his rating through the grades, but he's open company now.

“The 1400 metres is obviously his trip but he's versatile with what tracks he can race at.

“We'll be guided by the program, but he can go two, three, four weeks between runs without any problem and gets the job done.”

Eustace said the Listed (1400m), again at Flemington next month, may be a suitable assignment.

“He was getting pestered for quite a way and was punching out some quick sections and was still able to do it,” Eustace said.

“Full credit to him, he's a legend.”
