Champion Newcastle trainer Paul Perry bookended the Gosford meeting on Tuesday with wins to continue his strong start to the 2020-21 season.
Perry, who had 69 NSW winners in 2019-20, tops the state premiership with seven victories across the first 11 days of the new campaign.
Saquon and Patagonian, both carrying the colours of the Gillard family, were the lastest winners for Perry on Tuesday.
Only four horses contested the 3YO maiden plate over 1100m to start the program on a heavy 10 surface.
Saquon, with Jay Ford aboard, pushed forward early for the lead and kicked clear in the straight to win by more than two lengths at his third start.
The commanding win came after three trials this time in, including the latest on a rain-affected Gosford track.
"He's always shown something at home but he just got a bit of a fright early on this campaign and it's just taken a little while to correct it," Perry stable foreman Nathan Perry told Sky Thoroughbred Central. "But a bit of work at home and he trialled here really good the other day.
"And with all these trials, he's a really fit racehorse to get through this heavy track.
"We were confident he would get through it and we were happy with all the scratching on top of it. Hopefully he can train on from here."
Patagonian claimed the last, a benchmark 64 handicap (1100m), for a fourth win in 18 starts.
Jockey Jeff Penza settled the five-year-old gelding at the rear of the field and he came home the strongest down the outside to win by just under a length. It was his second victory this preparation and followed a last-start second at Gosford.
"His runs have been really good this prep, he's a real little trier and he certainly deserved that win today," Nathan said.
"As soon as [Penza] got him flowing with a bit of momentum, especially getting to the outside with this horse, he certainly let down good."
It took Perry to seven wins from 26 starters to begin the season.
"We might hit the top in August, but that might be it though," Nathan said with a laugh. "But we'll take it."
