2011 Cox Plate candiadte Wall Street a bull or bear?

Wall Street

Group 1 winner Wall Street

For a long time now Wall Street has been one of New Zealand’s best gallopers.

The winner of no less than five Group 1 races, he is trying to become Australasia’s champion weight for age performer by winning the 2011 $3m Group 1 W S Cox Plate (2040m) on Saturday.

It is the second time Wall Street will attempt a Cox Plate win after last year’s seventh to So You Think.

2011 W S Cox Plate – Horse profile.

3 Wall Street (barrier 7) 59kg

  • Seven year old bay gelding
  • Record: 26 starts 11 wins 4 second 0 third
  • Winning distance range 1400m to 2040m
  • Best win: 2010 Group 1 Emirates Stakes 1600m at Flemington
  • Trainer: Jeff Lynds, Awapuni, NZ
  • Jockey, Darren Beadman.
  • Latest price Luxbet $81.

In that race Wall Street settled midfield and simply failed to improve his position in the straight.

Trainer Jeff Lynds dropped him back to 1600m and he won the rich Emirates Stakes (1600m) at Flemington at his next start.

While Wall Street has won a Group 1 at 2040m in the Spring Classic at Hastings, the fact is  most of those wins at the top level have been at 1600m.

It suggests 1600m is certainly where his strengths lie.

One can understand Lynds trying for the 2011 Cox Plate but if anything Wall Street isn’t going as well this season as he was in 2010.

He looked to have every chance in the Toorak Handicap and while battling strongly, he never looked a winner.

Wall Street leading up to last year’s Cox Plate was two Group 1 wins in New Zealand and this year’s lead-up reads two unplaced starts.

One thing good about Wall Street is the fact he can handle wet or dry ground.

Bookmakers have dismissed Wall Street for the Cox Plate of 2011 and as gallant as this horse is we are bearish on his prospects and willing to risk him.
