Schofield Tips Sea Galleon for Caulfield Cup 2012

Ace hoop Glyn Schofield has continued to heap praise on Saturday’s Christmas Cup winner Sea Galleon tipping them as a possible chance for the 2012 Caulfield Cup back home in Victoria next Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

It was a successful first trip to Sydney for the Colin and Cindy Alderson-trained Galileo five-year-old Sea Galleon over the weekend, the Cranbourne-based galloper posting their third straight success with a one length win over Nextanix in the Listed Christmas Cup (2400m) at Rosehill.

While they have now been sent to the paddock for a well-earned rest, connections opting to bypass the $125,000 Group 3 Summer Cup (2400m) at Rosehill on Boxing Day, Sea Galleon is being spruiked for big things next season.

“He needs the paddock, he’s come to the end,” Cindy Alderson said after the Christmas Cup triumph.

“He’s done a great job to win three on the trot.”

With the Christmas Cup victory Sea Galleon also ticked one of the early boxes towards qualifying for the $2.5 million Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) next October, an ambitious aim Alderson was happy to entertain.

“I think he could become a Caulfield Cup horse,” she said.

“He races best when the pressure is on all the way and that’s usually the story in the Caulfield Cup.

“Now I have to work out a way to get him up the (ballot) list.”

Alderson went on to name the $200,000 Listed Mornington Cup (2400m) on February 15, a Caulfield Cup qualifier, as a possible target for Sea Galleon next year.

One person firmly in favour of setting Sea Galleon on the path towards the Caulfield Cup 2012 is Schofield, who partnered with them for the first time in the Christmas Cup.

“He could be a Caulfield Cup horse,” Schofield said.

There is a chance Sea Galleon could have a crack at Group 1 glory during the upcoming Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival, the horse a possible contender for the $2.25 million The BMW (2400m) at Rosehill on Easter Saturday, April 4.

“He’s only little, so I’m not really sure how he’d go with a big weight at weight-for-age in a race like the BMW but he might,” Alderson said.

The other option would be to keep Sea Galleon to a short, low-key autumn before a big spring assault.
