Chris Waller’s fillies dominate the nominations...
Exciting Victorian colt Crack A Roadie will be given the opportunity to chase a $2.4 million Inglis Triple Crown Bonus when he resumes in the autumn along with a likely tilt at the 2013 Blue Diamond Stakes.
The Stephen Theodore-trained two-year-old has already won the first leg of the Inglis Triple Crown, the Inglis Banner Stakes last October, and will resume in the $250,000 Inglis Premier at Mornington on February 13.
From there the son of Charge Forward is likely to contest the Blue Diamond on February 23 before the ultimate goal of the Group 2 2013 VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes at Flemington.
If all goes to plan, the promising youngster will have the VRC Sires’ under his belt which would leave him eligible for the $2.4 million Inglis Bonus heading into the final leg which will be the Inglis Guineas at Scone at the beginning of 2014.
Theodore revealed the autumn plan to Racing Victoria, clearly excited about Crack A Roadie’s prospects.
“If he annihilates them at Mornington then he will run in the Blue Diamond which I will to continue to pay up for,” Theodore said.
“The Sires is definitely the main aim with him through this preparation.
“He’s just a machine now this horse, we think he’s put on nearly 45 kilos and importantly it’s in all the right places.”
The lightly-raced colt went within a head of remaining unbeaten in his debut campaign in the spring when he was edged out on the line in the Group 3 Maribyrnong Plate at Flemington after appearing somewhat lost down the straight.
Theodore was very forward in the spring when discussing the talent possessed by the colt and his charge backed that up on debut when reeling off a stunning finish to claim the Inglis Banner from a seemingly unwinnable position at Moonee Valley.
