Triple Crown Stable Firing in Syndey and Melbourne
The Triple Crown Syndications stable holds a strong hand in both Sydney and Melbourne this weekend with six runners engaged across the two states.
Wild Fire (Sebring ex Seamstress) heads the team at Moonee Valley on Friday night, hopefully contesting in the Sportingbet Powered By William Hill Handicap over 1300m. Currently first emergency for the 12 horse field, trainer Peter Moody and connections are hoping for just one scratching before Friday night’s assignment to ensure the burley son of Sebring a start. The four year old has pleased the stable with his work heading in to this race, following a very close second when first up three weeks ago, and is looking to add another win on the board with two wins and a second already to his name from only six career starts.
Fellow Moody trained Sebring colt, Exacting (Sebring ex Danrego), debuts in the $120,000 Listed Santa’s Magical Kingdom Stakes (1000m) for two year olds at Sandown on Saturday. The colt will be looking to emulate a comfortable trial win at Caulfield last week, and although it will be an educational experience for the youngster, Moody is expecting him to acquit himself well with Luke Nolan on board.
Later in the day at Sandown, Group 2 winner Charlie Boy (Myboycharlie ex Maritime) flies the Triple Crown flag in the $150,000 Group 3 Kevin Heffernan Stakes. Having finished second in this race for the past two years running with Hot Snitzel, the Triple Crown and Gerald Ryan team will be looking to go one better this year, and hopefully see Charlie Boy in the winner’s circle. Michael Rodd has taken the ride on the entire and connections are hopeful that the Group 2 Danehill Stakes winning combination will prevail once again.
Meanwhile in Sydney, Dothraki (Mossman ex Volantis) will be looking to improve on a solid first up second placing at Rosehill two weeks ago in the Cellarbrations Whyte and Gilmour Handicap (1100m) at Rosehill on Saturday, where he will be piloted by in form Blake Shinn.
Charlie Royale (Myboycharlie ex Collodi) is out to break his maiden status at Kembla Grange, and last start winner Kentucky Fireball (Northern Meteor ex Lady Gretchen) is looking for back to back wins for Nick Olive.
Keep an eye out for the red Triple Crown colours in the winner’s stall this weekend and best of luck to all connections!
