Bigger Things to Come for Le Roi After 2012 Summer Cup Win

Tony McEvoy-trained import Le Roi announced himself as a potential spring cups contender at Rosehill on Wednesday when he justified a short price to claim the Group 3 2012 Summer Cup (2400m) by nearly a length.

With experienced rider Glyn Schofield aboard, the lightly-raced entire sat third in running before getting clear down the inside in the straight to defeat Brightest and Pracecido.

It was the fourth straight victory for the four-year-old who is likely to have just a light autumn before being aimed at races like the 2013 Caulfield Cup and 2013 Melbourne Cup in the spring.

“He’ll have a very light autumn-winter. His main goal will be next spring,” McEvoy said.

Despite having begun his preparation in September, McEvoy will not spell Le Roi and will instead keep him in work for the next six weeks without racing.

“I’ve got a beautiful property up on the river Murray where I can lead them off the pony and swim them in the river,” McEvoy said.

Schofield was riding the import for the first time and had no hesitations about prediciting a big future for the emerging stayer.

“I think Tony knows what he’s got and he’s in for an exciting time with this fella,” Schofield said.

“For a horse that stays well and has only had a handful of starts, it was a very good win.”

Summer racing action continues this weekend so head to bookmaker.com.au to back a winner at great odds.
