Temple of Boom Ready for First Caulfield Test in 2012 Schillaci Stakes

Queensland sprinter Temple Of Boom will get his spring underway this weekend when he contests the Group 2 2012 Schillaci Stakes (1000m) at Caulfield.

Temple Of Boom begins his spring this weekend in the Schillaci Stakes

It will be the first time the six-year-old has raced at Caulfield, with his successful 2011 spring campaign being held purely at Flemington.

Trainer Tony Gollan is confident he can again experience success in Melbourne and is not concerned by his ability to adapt to the Caulfield track.

“He’s very adaptable. He hardly ever runs a bad race anywhere we’ve taken him,” Gollan said.

Gollan said while Temple Of Boom had plenty of improvement to come ahead of his major spring goal of the Group 1 Patinack Farm Classic, he is expecting him to perform first-up this weekend.

“He’s had a good foundation for the 1000m run. He’s worked good, pulled up well,” he said.

“He’s got nice improvement in him and his grand final is the Patinack.”

Temple Of Boom received a boost this morning when receiving a favourable barrier three draw in the 10-horse field.

Included in the Schillaci Stakes field is fellow Queensland sprinter Buffering who Gollan admits is the horse to beat.

“He’ll certainly be the testing material for my horse but they’re not too far apart,” Gollan said.

A son of Piccolo, Temple Of Boom has been a consistent runner, winning 10 of 32 starts and collecting more than $1.1 million in prizemoney.

He delivered Gollan his first Group 1 win in April when he won the Galaxy at Randwick by a length.

Other Schillaci Stakes runners include Shorts winner Pampelonne and the Leon Corstens-trained Snitzem.
