2012 Australian Guineas-Bound Sangster Resumes in NZ

Last year’s Victoria Derby winner Sangster will resume racing with a tough first-up assignment at home in New Zealand this Saturday before heading back to Oz to contest the Australian Guineas 2012 at Flemington during the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.

Trent Busuttin’s Savabeel three-year-old is accepted for the NZ$200,000 Group 1 Waikato Draught Sprint (1400m) at Te Repa where they will face off against the likes of Stephen Mckee’s evergreen veteran Mufhasa (King Mufhasa in Australia), last-start Telegraph Handicap winner Guiseppina and John Bary’s Aussie-bred The Hombre.

Sangster travelled down under last August and enjoyed a first-up win at Warwick Farm before going on to contest five more races across Sydney and Melbourne.

At Randwick they enjoyed an eye-catching third to Doctor Doom in the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m), which was the best run of their career at that stage.

They continued on to finish a close second to Sabrage in the Group 3 Norman Robinson Stakes (2000m) in their debut Victorian run at Caulfield before becoming an elite level winner at career start number eight beating a crack field in the Group 1 Victoria Derby (2500m) at Flemington.

Busuttin is hoping for a strong first-up performance on Saturday before he sends Sangster to Australia where they will hopefully run in the $750,000 Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) on March 3.

“At this stage we’re heading to Melbourne for the Australian Guineas,” Busuttin said.

“That could change, we could end up in Sydney on the same day in a 1400-metre race for three-year-olds, but at this stage definitely the Australian Guineas.”

The back-up aim Busuttin refers to is the $200,000 Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill.

“He’s kicking off Saturday in a 1400-metre weight-for-age race,” Busuttin continued.

“He’s taking on the best weight-for-age horses in New Zealand, so it’ll be a pretty hot field, but as long as he’s running on we’ll be happy.”

In the currently 2012 Australian Guineas odds at Luxbet Sangster is the $12 third favourite behind Darley-owned champ Helmet ($3) and brilliant Crown Oaks winner Mosheen ($6.50) who resumed with a first-up win in the Listed Manfred Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield last Saturday.
