Proven Thoroughbreds will have up to eight runners in the week ahead, seven of which will feature over a busy weekend in three states.
On Friday, the John Thompson-trained three-year-old BOSTON BLUES heads to the 1600m maiden at Canberra while ARGENT D’OR lines up in the feature event at Canterbury’s night meeting – The $80k Shooting Star (1250m), for Joe Pride.
Our other Saturday runner will be SORNJA, from the Steve O’Dea stable, in the 2000m BM80 Handicap at Doomben.
WAS IT WORTH IT, a promising three-year-old also prepared by O’Dea, has been nominated for the 1200m C2 at Ipswich Wednesday, following two wins and a second in his first preparation midway through last year.
Meanwhile, Corey Brown has been booked to ride speedy filly BROOK MAGIC (Pride) in the 955m 55 Second Challenge at Moonee Valley on Friday FEB 16.
