Hoylonny Aimed at Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival 2012

A Warwick Farm winner on Monday, Hoylonny has been confirmed as a non-acceptor for Saturday week’s Magic Millions Guineas on the Gold Coast, trainer Chris Waller keeping the up-and-comer for a Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival assault later in the season that could include a shot at the 2012 Australian Guineas.


Hoylonny will be saved for the autumn and bypass the Magic Millions Guineas on January 14

The progressive Lonhro colt recorded their second career success from three starts when posting a long-neck win over the Peter Snowden-trained Soledad in the $40,000 Summer Super Saver Ticket Handicap (1300m).

The win qualified Hoylonny, an expensive yearling purchase at $380,000 from the 2010 Gold Coast Magic Millions Sales, for the $1 million Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (1400m) on January 14.

It also saw their price in the futures Magic Millions Guineas odds at Luxbet slashed into $9, the galloper occupying the fourth line of betting along with Vo Rogue Plate winner Punch On.

“Hoylonny has the makings of a very good horse,” Waller said on Monday.

“He’s a very athletic horse with the best attitude.

“I guess he is a typical Lonhro, very laid-back.”

To date Hoylonny’s only defeat came on debut back in August last year when the they ran a devastatingly close third to subsequent Victoria Derby winner Sangster over 1200 metres at Warwick Farm, their run a brave one considering the Heavy track conditions on the day.

Despite all of this, Waller said that the MM Guineas would come too soon for the promising colt and that Hoylonny would be saved for the autumn riches.

“He’s still very green, both physically and mentally,” Waller said.

“He is eligible for the Magic Millions but he could go up there on a hot day in a hustle and bustle race and run a nice fourth which could bugger his whole campaign.

“If I give him three or four weeks between his first few starts I might be able to get five runs out of him (in the autumn).”

Waller said the $750,000 Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) at Flemington on Saturday March 3 was a hopeful aim for Hoylonny, but that the horse would have to progress very rapidly to make the cut.

“He’s got a big future but he needs to find six months in about six weeks,” he said.

“I’ll space his races because it is always easy to get ahead of ourselves but I think he is probably ready for a big campaign.”

Waller also named the $500,000 Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) during the Sydney Autumn Carnival on March 17 as a possible goal for his spruik galloper.

“If we space his races properly then maybe we’ll look at the Australian or Randwick Guineas if we get the opportunity,” he said.
