2013 Doncaster Mile in Lamasery’s Sights

Injury-prone stayer Lamasery may have had their spring campaign cut short due to injury but connections are confident of a full recovery in time for the six-year-old to target the Doncaster Mile 2013 during next year’s Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.


Lamasery could run in the 2013 Doncaster Mile first-up next year

The David Vandyke-trained Commands gelding looked in good form to improve on their third in last year’s The Metropolitan over the mile and a half in Sydney this spring after a nice win in the Group 2 Hill Stakes (2000m) at Randwick in September.

They could only manage to finish seven lengths away fifth to Glencadam Gold in the Group 1 feature however and were subsequently spelled after the re-inflammation of an old joint issue.

It wasn’t the first time Lamasery was sidelined due to as they spent over nine months out of action over the past year.

While missing out on the Melbourne richest this spring was certainly a blow, Vandyke is already eyeing off one of next autumn’s biggest races with Lamasery a chance for the $2 million Group 1 Doncaster Mile Handicap (1600m) first-up at Royal Randwick on April 20.

“He’s in the paddock. I’ll bring him back and we might even try to go first-up into the Doncaster,” Vandyke said.

“If I can have him fit and ready and put him in a mile race where he’ll get less than weight-for-age – because he’s not a big horse – I think that will probably suit him and we’ll go from there.”
