Angus Blair has a small share in the three-year-old gelding and was trackside for just the third win of his career in horse ownership.
"It's hard to describe, the adrenaline rush was not something that I expected," he said back in Albury on Tuesday.
The adrenaline rush was not something that I expected ... I was just completely speechless.Angus Blair
"I was surprised with the adrenaline rush when it won a few weeks ago at Flemington and then on Saturday, I was just completely speechless, a lot of my mates were jumping around, going berserk and I was dumbfounded to tell you the truth with what had just happened."
The Anthony Freedman-trained Warning ($9.50), with jockey Damien Oliver, won by three lengths.
"It was a big night, all the owners went to a bar and the trophy was filled with champagne, we just enjoyed the moment. The owners included three or four of my close mates and several other mutual friends, we all celebrated like we'd known each other forever."
