That’s The One for the Caulfield Guineas 2011

Cranbourne-based training team Colin and Cindy Alderson look to have uncovered a genuine contender for the 2011 Caulfield Guineas this spring in That’s The One who maintained their undefeated record with a narrow win at Flemington last Saturday.

The smart Snippetson gelding was impressive on debut back on July 20 at a bog Sandown track, That’s The One winning by an easy three lengths over 1200 metres in a 2YO open handicap.

On Saturday they went around at the famous Flemington racecourse for the first time and despite a horror barrier 12 of 12 draw and a big 59kg weight, That’s The One and ace jockey Craig Williams showed a touch of class to win the $70,000 Olive Curtis & Andrew Denadic Handicap (1410m).

After a testing run from last to first, That’s The One ($8) finished a half-neck clear of the Peter Moody-trained Club Command ($3.50) while Robert Hickmott’s $51 roughie Jollywood crossed a further two lengths away in a surprise third.

Race favourite was the John Sadler-trained Motorised ($3.10), but they were only able to finish sixth.

“I think he has got a great future in front of him but today was another revelation,” Cindy Alderson said after Saturday’s barnstorming win.

“I didn’t think he could do that.

“I was very impressed with him today.

“They went hard early but then they slowed it up and at the top of the straight I thought ‘he has to be pretty good to pick them up’.

“He just kept coming and coming and coming. It was pretty exciting stuff.”

Craig Williams was aboard That’s The One for the first time on Saturday, Danny Adam having ridden the promising galloper for their first run, and was equally impressed with what the horse showed in the run and excited by where they could end up this Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

“He has got bagfuls of ability,” Williams said.

“He relaxed really good and his last 600 metres was pretty fast (33.86 seconds).”

Having shown such determination and ability, That’s The One is now being targeted for the $1 million Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield on October 8.

The Aldersons nominated him for the Caulfield Guineas last week, 277 horses making up the early entries for the lucrative three-year-olds’ feature, despite That’s The One having had just one run at that stage.

“We’ve got to be mindful that this is his first preparation and he’s obviously had to learn a lot to get here, so we’re just going to take it race by race, but at this stage he’s in the Guineas and we’ll keep him focused that way at this point,” Alderson said.

“He’s got better the whole time.

“Today he handled himself really well and I think you’re going to see him keep improving.

“I really think his best is six months in front of him.”

Caulfield Guineas first declarations will be taken on Tuesday September 6.
