Snowden’s Other Colt is no Galah – Victoria Derby Day 2011 Nominations

Superstar sprinter Sepoy may be set to steal the Victoria Derby Day show at Flemington on Saturday, the triple Group 1 winner out for a fourth thoroughbred major in the Coolmore Stud Stakes, but premier trainer Peter Snowden has more than just one classy colt lining up at the meeting with his last-start winner Galah entered for the 2011 Inglis Carbine Club Stakes.


Geelong Classic winner Galah will shoot for a Group win on Victoria Derby Day this Saturday

Running as one of the nine Group races on a bumper Derby Day card, the $250,000 Group 3 Inglis Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) is shaping up as a top showdown between some of the lesser-known but still promising three-year-olds of the season.

After a cracking effort to defeat Masthead in the final stride in the Listed Australia Stakes (1400m) on Caulfield Cup Day, Redoute’s Choice colt Galah is back racing in Melbourne this weekend heading the list of 13 Ingis Carbine Club Stakes nominations.

The Australia Stakes success was Galah’s third win on the trot from four career starts, a nice record that Snowden will be hoping to add to on Saturday.

It could be a triple shot of three-year-old colts saluting for Snowden on Saturday as Darley’s No. 1 horseman is also represented in the meeting’s marquee race with late entry Induna taking on favourite Manawanui in the $1.5 million Group 1 AAMI Victoria Derby (2500m).

“His form in Sydney just got better and better and the good sign about his wins was that he was finishing his races off more strongly at each start,” Snowden said of Induna who won the Geelong Classic last Wednesday by a blistering three and a half lengths.

“That’s what you want to see with a Derby colt, finishing off races and doing well at home and that’s what he’s doing.”

Induna is paying $5.50 on the second line of Victoria Derby betting at Luxbet behind Manawanui ($2.35).

Meanwhile, the other more notable Inglis Carbine Club Stakes entries include:

  • The Danny O’Brien-trained Meethaq coming off a smart win over 1600m at Caulfield on October 12
  • Peter Moody’s Australia Stakes third placegetter Highly Recommended
  • John Thompson-trained filly Pane In The Glass also nominated for both the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) and Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) on Saturday
  • Three last-start winners from the Caulfield stables of Mick Price with the undefeated More Than Ready colt Proliferate, Exceed And Excel colt Instinction and Saint Etienne – all stepping up to Group company for the first time will be the first to publish all of the Victoria Derby Day final fields and race previews when released on Wednesday, so make sure you bookmark this site.

While full Flemington race odds and options will be open at Luxbet following acceptances, punters can back their favourites in the Victoria Derby right now with futures odds lead by the impressive Manawanui.
