Price believes Mighty Boss, who was a last-start shock $ 101 winner of the Caulfield Guineas, has developed into a better horse this time in.

“He’s a Caulfield Guineas winner so he’s got his value already,” Price said. “It’s about trying to add value to him. I can’t add value to him running in lesser races.”




Price said Mighty Boss would resume in the Orr Stakes at Caulfield on February 10 and then he could run a fortnight later in the Futurity Stakes.

Price said Might Boss’ main aim was the Australian Guineas (1600m) at Flemington on March 3. “He’ll go into that race either backing up a week later after the Futurity Stakes or I wait three weeks after the Orr Stakes and tackle it second-up,” he said.

Price said he was also considering taking Mighty Boss to Sydney for the Doncaster Mile.

The trainer is also looking at the Australian Guineas with three other horses, including last-start Adelaide winner Grunt. Grunt will run in the C.S Hayes Stakes at Flemington on February 17 before running in the Australian Guineas.

Holy Snow and Ouyang Feng will also be aimed at the Group 1 race.

Price is setting recent stable addition, undefeated New Zealand three-year-old colt Ardrossan, for the Oakleigh Plate (1100m) at Caulfield on February 24.

“He’s a well-bred colt and I want to get his value up. He’s going really well,” he said.

Price said he was considering running Ardrossan in the Rubiton Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield on February 10 before he tackled the Oakleigh Plate.

He said he was still deciding whether he would set two-year-old colt High Ratio, who won his debut at Bendigo last December, for the Blue Diamond Stakes or the Golden Slipper.


Thronum set to sizzle

LINDSAY Park intends to throw promising sprinter Thronum in the deep end on Friday night in the Group 2 Australia Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley.

Tom Dabernig said Thronum’s first two runs for the stable last spring demonstrated his ability when winning by five lengths at Bendigo and then running third in the Group 3 Heffernan Stakes (1300) at Sandown.

“In his jump-outs at home he’s airborne,” Dabernig said. “He’s fit as he’s stayed in work the whole time. He’s a stallion by Snitzel and if he runs well on Friday night there are a lot of good options for him.”

Darren Weir’s Australia Stakes contender Brave Smash will trial at Camperdown on Monday.

More pain for Meech

LINDA Meech fell foul of stewards again on Saturday when she had another six meetings added to her 23-meeting suspension for improper riding at Kilmore earlier this month.

Racing Victoria chief steward Terry Bailey was officiating at Camperdown at the weekend and said Meech was found guilty of careless riding in the Camperdown Cup.

Bailey said they took into account her good record and her guilty plea.

Meech’s 23-meeting suspension for striking Stephen Brown with the whip when she rode As Bad As Tyson ends on February 13, but she will now serve another six meetings on top of that and can resume on February 18.

Stockdale charged

APPRENTICE Brandon Stockdale has been charged by stewards for possessing and using a mobile phone and also for giving false evidence.

Stewards quizzed Stockdale at last Wednesday’s Caulfield twilight meeting over his use of a mobile phone after he had arrived in the jockey’s room.

At the inquiry, Stockdale told stewards he was unaware he had the phone in his bag and only found it when he received a call from his master, Logan McGill.

Stewards found both statements to be false. He will face the Racing And Appeals Disciplinary Board on a date to be fixed.

Fresh approach for Illustrious Lad

TRAINER Peter Gelagotis said he was looking at doing something unorthodox with their sprinter Illustrious Lad. Gelagotis said Illustrious Lad runs his best races first-up and they are planning on taking him to Dubai for the Al Quoz Sprint (1000m) at Meydan on March 31.

“His premium run is fresh and he’s got a few issues, but he runs a really big race fresh. We’re exploring the option of the Al Quoz as just his one run for a preparation.”

He said Illustrious Lad’s last two first-up runs were a fifth in the Lightning Stakes and a second in the Schillaci Stakes, which was good form for a race like the Al Quoz Stakes.


IF the new rules of racing which start on February 3 were in place at Flemington last Saturday, outsider One For Later, who won at $ 151, wouldn’t have been eligible to run.

She would have needed a rating of 60 to have contested the race but as she was a 57 rater, she would have been ineligible.
