Excapishe No Coincidental Winner

A full-brother to former stakes winning mare Coincidental, Excapishe could prove to be the find of Gold Coast trainer Trevor Bailey’s career after the two-year-old exploded onto the racing scene with a remarkable win in Brisbane this week.

The Exceed And Excel gelding by Prego mare Capishe, Excapishe debuted in the $13,000 Enwise Electrical 2YO Maiden Plate (1030m) at Doomben on Wednesday, the youngster coasting to an effortless four and a half length victory over the Peter Balzen-trained Vis Viva.

Already Excapishe is being tipped as a potential Group 1 winner by both Bailey and jockey Scott Galloway, who was aboard for the win, after having shown such ability in their first race appearance – Bailey ecstatic over the future prospects for the juvenile.

Bailey first saw the promise in Excapishe when they easily accounted for one of their well-performing stablemates in a 1000m barrier trial at the Gold Coast earlier this month, his predictions confirmed yesterday.

“He’s the real deal,” Bailey said.

“I knew he was better than average when he beat a class three horse of mine in a gallop.”

It was actually Bailey’s father, fellow Gold Coast trainer Alan, who discovered Excapishe.

Originally purchased for just $16,000 at the 2010 Magic Millions National Yearling Sale by Stephen Jones, Bailey secured the horse for $100,000 at the Ready To Run sales at the Gold Coast last year.

“Dad saw him at the Ready to Run trials and immediately told me I should have a look at him,” Bailey said.

“He looks to be very promising and he was only half-wound up for this.

“He could easily have won by five or six lengths.”

There is little doubt that Excapishe is a galloper to watch in the future, Bailey planning to give them their next start at Grafton before a possible stint at the Melbourne Spring Carnival next season.

“I’m thinking of sending him to Grafton for a bonus race they have on there,” he said.

“It’s a big step but he looks to be foolproof.

“I’ll see how he goes in his next couple of runs but there’s plenty of time to go south for the spring.”

The bonus race on the horizon for Excapishe is the $27,000 Inglis Bonus Plate (1200m) which runs on Grafton Cup Day, July 14.

Hoop Galloway is also firmly aboard the Excapishe bandwagon having been blown away with how easy the horse was to ride and win with first-up.

“I eased him down over the last 50 metres but he still had a bit left in the tank,” Galloway said.

“It was a strong win and he’s got loads of potential.”
