The 2yo Sprint Breeder Cup

Harry Hurry Home

If you are a Chalk player, you may want to skip this race. The race looks likely to produce a keenly contested finish, and the sudden improvement of some of these mostly unexposed youngsters makes the prospect of an upset a real possibility.

It’s a wide open race.

1. Sweet Child O’Mine

2yo filly from Bristol Turks, Career earnings: $0
Overall rating: Adequate(38) – Early sprinter
Born:Fri 7th Oct 2016, bred by Bristol Turks
Lineage:By Requiem out of First Seal 
Recent form:7

Trainer comments: – “I entered Sweet Child in the Sprint Breeders heat as a bit of an experiment. It hasn’t worked perfectly to be honest, only just qualifying for the final. I am not sure if the going will be too difficult for her in the end, I suspect it will be either slow or slow side of dead so we’ll see. If she comes back without an injury and in the money, I’ll be happy.”

2. Meteora

2yo filly from Barcarolle, Career earnings: $46,000
Overall rating: Moderate(34) – Fast finisher
Born:Fri 28th Oct 2016, bred by Barcarolle
Lineage:By Empyrean out of Artemis 
Recent form:3

Trainer comments: – “Breeders Sprint looks to be a lottery. I was very happy with the run from Meteora and would expect a bold run in the Final. The main dangers would be ‘Sweet Child O’Mine’ which is drawn well and should be the one finishing the race off very fast and the other horse to watch I feel would be ‘Changes‘ which won really well in the heat and should be the hardest to roll up front. Tips 1-7-2.”

3. Crimson

2yo filly from Karaka Breeders, Career earnings: $27,000
Overall rating: Adequate(36) – Mud-lark
Born:Fri 7th Oct 2016, bred by Karaka Breeders
Lineage:By Not Too Soon out of Kanuka 
Recent form:5

Trainer comments: – “If the track is slow then it improves my horse’s chances as the heat was on firm ground. Have tried to give it as much sprint xp to prepare for this cup as Crimson is a little behind in OR. Will be happy with a top 5 finish.”

4. Kozma

2yo colt from RCS Locos, Career earnings: $0
Overall rating: Adequate(37) – Unpredictable
Born:Fri 7th Oct 2016, bred by RCS Locos
Lineage:By Shadow Warrior out of Recent Grand
Recent form:6

Trainer comments: – “Kozma is my first trained Unpredictable so who knows how this will pan out. The extra distance in the final compared to the heats and change in weather makes the race pretty unpredictable too.”

5. Mud On The Tires

Overall rating: Moderate(32) – Mud-lark

6. Brother

2yo colt from Sinthville, Career earnings: $23,000
Overall rating: Adequate(37)
Born:Fri 7th Oct 2016, bred by Sinthville
Recent form:4

Trainer comments: – “It`s an interesting race with the ground possibly being on the “better” side of dead, well that`s what my sidekick said when he had a few. It will be interesting to see if the ground will be suited enough for the early sprinters and fast finishers. The highly rated muddie Crimson could have her work cutout if the ground is as above. My Brother, I like it. He was born with that name which I was chuffed with and combine that with winning his 1st hoof race and running 60K in the heat pleased me even more. I think with a better trainer he would have a chance at top 5 but now that I have learnt that you put the horse into the stall head 1st you never know what could happen. Jockey wise, my old apprentice so whatever happens, I have tried to keep it a family affair, right bruv?”
