Iconoclasm scores his 10th career victory on Saturday when surged late to win over 1400m at Flemington.

The entire’s hopes looked in trouble when he was slightly slowly away, which forced jockey Damien Oliver to settle him further back that planned in running.

“He’s a terrifically honest horse and his record is very good,” winning trainer Danny O’Brien said post race.

“It’s probably been the furtherest he has been back in a race and still been able to win it, but Damien timed his run beautifully today.”

Iconoclasm, owned and bred by Rosemont Stud, made his it fourth victory at this distance and fourth win at headquarters thanks to his last minute heroics. 

“He loves Flemington and the 1400m. He has run some good races at a mile, but his most effective trip appears to be 1400m.”

O’Brien said the son of Toorak Toff was  building to the win. 

“He was very good at Bendigo (first-up) and he was very good the other day against So Si Bon so he has been in excellent form and it was nice to get him another win for him today.”

The win was 10th of the five-year-old’s career from 27 starts and edged his prizemoney past $925,000.
