The 3yo Middle Breeder Cup – 12th November 2016 – Sydney Harbour Racecourse


The 3yo Middle Breeder Cup

Looking For Gold

The Bristol Turks-bred Requiem colt Bad To The Bone is the early optimist’s choice among the 5 entries in the 3yo Middle Breeder Cup on Saturday. Lorean Pendon rides Bad To The Bone again and the lightly raced 3 year old is held in high regard, after a string of thirds in top company. Lady Sardean has been brought along quietly and has her second taste of cup racing. There is plenty to like about her chances in this race. Creek Secured and Tuttas are by no means not of it. Sloopy will enjoy the experience.

A very interesting race to watch.

Trainer comments: – “Bad To The Bone is still very much a work in progress. I’m not very happy with the stat balance yet and this race probably came a couple of weeks to early. That said his time was ok in the heat and I think he has enough to finish top3.”

2. Lady Sardean

3yo filly from Sardean Lodge, Career earnings: $385,600
Overall rating: Satisfactory(49) – Stalker
Born:Fri 1st Jul 2016, bred by Sardean Lodge
Lineage:By Lord Snowdon out of Sardean
Recent form:2,5,1

Trainer comments: – “She’s such a well bred horse, black type on both sides and by a sire who could have had easily had a trophy cabinet full of cups if he didn’t find one better each time. I am expecting her to strip fitter for the run and be tuned right up for the final. This cup is coming to Osaka for the season unfortunately not by way of the river. Good luck everyone.”
