Triple Crown Syndications to feature during Melbourne Cup week
It’s an exciting time of year for racegoers, trainers, jockeys and owners alike over the next 7 days as all eyes shift to Flemington for their world renowned Melbourne Cup Carnival.
Whilst Triple Crown Syndications doesn’t have a runner in the race that stops the nation; the red silks of the team will be donned in quality feature races.
Derby day is the opening day of Melbourne cup week. The Triple Crown team will have to wait until the final race on the card where Dothraki will contest the Group 2 $300,000 TAB.com.au Stakes (1200m) down the Flemington straight.
The 6yo warrior Dothraki has a strong record on the track recording a win and a third placing from only two starts and will look to improve that record here. In what is a hot field of Group performers Blake Shinn will be looking to follow the leaders from barrier 11 and time his run to perfection down the straight to hit the lead in the final 50metres.
Exciting mare Denpurr heads to the $200,000 Group 3 Hong Kong Jockeys Club Stakes (1400m) on Cup Day at Flemington. A winner of 2 from 2 this preparation the four-year-old daughter of Denman will be looking to continue that form as she prepares for the Magic Millions Race Series in January 2017.
Ridden by Kerrin McEvoy and drawing well in barrier 2 Denpurr will be given plenty of time to settle before being given plenty of room in the straight to show her electric turn of foot.
Rounding out the Melbourne team is Triple Crown speedster Redzel. Having contested the Group 1 Moir Stakes last start at Moonee Valley, Redzel is sure to appreciate the drop in class when he contests the Listed G.H Mumm Stakes (1000m) down the Flemington straight on Oaks Day.
This preparation Redzel has climbed through the sprinting ranks after two strong all the way wins in the Group 3 Resimax Stakes at Caulfield in August and July Sprint at Canterbury.
The Sydney team is led by Brigadoon Rise who contests the Benchmark 82 Handicap (1200m) this Saturday at Rosehill. A mare with plenty of ability Brigadoon Rise will be looking to pull it all together here and show her true wares.
Jumping from barrier 2 leading Queensland hoop Jim Byrne will be looking to sit just behind what looks to be a likely hot tempo in front. Showing a long and sustained sprint to win earlier this year at Warwick Farm, Brigadoon Rise is sure to feature in the business end of the race.
Rounding out cup week for the Triple Crown team is Charlie Boy who heads to Hawkesbury to contest the Listed Ladies Cup (1400m). The six-year-old son of Myboycharlie is noted for mixing his form. Having run a strong placing in the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 just 4 starts ago ‘Charlie’ has proven he can rub shoulders with the best of them on his day. A display at his best would see Charlie very hard to beat at Hawkesbury.
