Proisir Fires Warning Ahead of 2012 Spring Champion Stakes

Gai Waterhouse-trained colt Proisir fired a warning shot to his 2012 Spring Champion Stakes rivals yesterday when dominating the Spring Stakes at Newcastle.

With Nash Rawiller in the saddle, the boom three-year-old led from start to finish to score a six-length victory in the Newcastle feature seeing him soar into contention for a number of big spring features.

He is now a $5.00 chance for the Caulfield Guineas and $12.00 in the Cox Plate but his first Group 1 target will come much sooner in next month’s Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes.

Rawiller has been aboard for all three of his dominant wins and believes he will only get better as he heads towards top level racing.

“He’s only lightly raced and we haven’t really got to the bottom of him yet. He’s still on the way up,” Rawiller said.

“I was quite blown away with the ease of his win. Before the race for the horses behind us [but] on the day he made them look second rate.

“He’s getting out the gates well and making his own luck on the speed.”

Despite his obvious talent, Rawiller hinted that the stable would remain cautious about throwing him into the deep end against stablemate Pierro in the Caulfield Guineas or Cox Plate.

“He’s a horse that I think Gai is thinking long term with. We want him in the stable for as long as possible,” he said.

“There’s no need to burn the candle at both ends this preparation so I guess we’ll just let the horse tell us.”

Many of his Spring Champion Stakes rivals will be on show this weekend at Randwick in the Group 3 Gloaming Stakes.
