Bossdon City Ready to Live Up to Hype

Bossdon City was a horse with huge raps on him as a two year old, but after failing to deliver any real juvenile success, trainer Brett Cavanough will use a more cautious approach to the horses spring campaign.

Following a ten length barrier trial win and an impressive victory on debut at Rosehill, Bossdon City was being billed as one of the major contenders for the Blue Diamond and Golden Slipper. But it wasn’t to be.

Bossdon City was easily beaten in the Blue Diamond Prelude and then finished down the track in the Silver Slipper. While Cavanough still has a high opinion of the emerging sprinter, he has said that he will aim a little lower with Bossdon City this time in.

“We’ll be staying away from the super stars this time,” Cavanough said.

“I may have overcooked him early on but I’m happy with how much he has improved.”

His improvement was evident in his last start at Flemington on 25th of June. Bossdon City was forced to lug 58kg over the 1000m at Flemington, however the horse stuck to his task nicely to run fourth. There was plenty of merit in the run, and he should return to the track much fitter next time in.

“I took him to Flemington to familiarise him with the straight course ahead of the spring and hopefully he makes it that far,” Cavanough said.

“I thought he handled it pretty well and I was happy with the way he settled. I thought it was a huge run.”

If Bossdon City lives up to the hype that surrounded him as a two year old, he could be a Coolmore Stud Stakes contender later in the spring.

Bossdon City will race in the 2yo handicap over 1200m at Randwick on the weekend. He will partnered by apprentice Blake Spriggs.

Cavanough will also race his recent Darley acquisition Sleepers at Randwick this weekend in a 1200m benchmark 80 race.

Sleepers won three races for Lee Freedman, before scoring on debut for Cavanough at Albury.

“He is coming along for the trip and we will see how he measures up.”
