Sam Clipperton's goal to outride his claim became reality at Canterbury as the talented apprentice recorded his 80th metropolitan win aboard All Salsa.

Sydney's leading young rider reached the milestone with two weeks left of his apprenticeship and the moment was made even more special as it was aboard a horse prepared by his master Ron Quinton.

"It has been a long enjoyable four years and I've achieved every goal that I have set out to achieve, so I couldn't be happier," Clipperton said.

"The ultimate goal is to outride the claim, the further you go in the more goals you seem to set yourself, I've ticked off every realistic goal I've wanted to achieve in my time.

"To do it on a horse trained by Ron Quinton, it just caps it off, it makes it extra special."

Clipperton rode his first metropolitan winner aboard Lichentein at Randwick on Anzac Day back in 2011.

"Kerrin McEvoy pointed out to me that I rode my first city winner for Ron Quinton and then the last for my claim," Clipperton said.

"He has been such a big support throughout my career, he has always put me in the deep end, he has always had faith in me and that has given me a lot of confidence as a rider.

All Salsa improved her record to two wins from as many starts since joining Quinton's stable, surging from the tail of the field to win easily as a heavily backed favourite.
