Sherocksmyworld Targets The TJ Smith 2012

After an impressive first up victory at Canterbury on Wednesday the Gai Waterhouse-trained filly Sherocksmyworld has earned talks of a Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival campaign with the 2012 The TJ Smith the likely aim.

A lightly raced daughter of top Aussie sire Fastnet Rock, Sherocksmyworld broke her maiden status at career run number three this week with a narrow victory over Blowin’ Your Mind in a two-year-olds’ handicap over 1000m at Canterbury.

Waterhouse has enjoyed her strongest and most successful Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival in years with an incredible seven Group 1 victories, all seven ridden by Nash Rawiller.

Now Waterhouse and Rawiller have their eyes on the winter riches in Queensland including the $500,000 Group 1 The TJ Smith (1600m) at Eagle Farm on Stradbroke Handicap Day, Saturday June 9.

While Sherocksmyworld still has a way to go Waterhouse is confident she can develop into a genuine The TJ Smith chance and the flying Rawiller, who was aboard for the Canterbury win, isn’t arguing.

“I wouldn’t say a mile is going to be her best trip but I’m not going to say you can’t do it,” Rawiller said to his boss on Wednesday.

“I know how good you are.”

The Canterbury effort showed Sherocksmyworld’s improving status, her previous runs being a third on debut to Tatra at Rosehill last October and a second to subsequent Black Opal Stakes winner Epaulette over 1200m on Boxing Day.

“I think she’s always been above average,” Waterhouse said of the $200,000 Magic Millions 2011 Gold Coast Yearling purchase.

“She ran behind Epaulette at Rosehill one time.

“She’s a really good filly in the making.

“The TJ (Smith) is what I’ve nominated her for and I’d love to see her there.”

Waterhouse will keep Sherocksmyworld in Sydney for her next start in an attempt to boost her prize money and push her up the TJ Smith order of entry before heading up to the sunshine state.

“I’m here and I think it’s better if she stays here another few weeks and just gets more seasoned and more prize money under her belt,” Waterhouse said.

Also on The TJ Smith path after a breakthrough win at Canterbury yesterday is the David Payne-trained Honorius.

The Holy Roman Emperor colt backed up from a seventh to subsequent Champagne Stakes runner-up Dear Demi in the Listed Fernhill Handicap (1600m) at Randwick on a Heavy (8) track last month to finally break their maiden status at their sixth career start.

Ridden by Glyn Schofield Honorius beat home Fiveandahalfstar by a length in the Australian Turf Club Handicap (15500m) yesterday, convincing Payne they have the potential to race competitively in Queensland this winter festival.

“His last start you can put a pencil through,” Payne said.

“He can’t handle the mud so in future we won’t be running him on a heavy track.

“But I think he’s going to be a nice horse once he gets over 2000 metres.

“He’s not a bad sort so I think he’s going to win a decent race.

“We might give him another start (in Sydney) or have a look at Brisbane.

“He’s nominated for the TJ Smith; he’d be a nice horse for that race.”
