Brief 2013 Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival for Hvasstan

Victoria Derby fourth placegetter Hvasstan will have just a light 2013 Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival before being brought back for a more intense campaign in the spring.

Hvasstan (inside) will play only a minor role in the autumn

Trainer Peter Gelagotis is yet to confirm an autumn goal for the three-year-old but said his role at the carnival will only be minor.

Speaking on Radio Sports National, Gelagotis said the Fastnet Rock colt has shown positive signs in trackwork but is wary not to push him too hard after a tough spring campaign.

“He’s doing everything right, he did well very quickly, which is a credit to his temperament,” Gelagotis said.

“We’re looking forward to a short-fire autumn campaign, mindful of the fact that he had a solid spring and you don’t get a lot of time in between to give them a break.”

The Moe-based galloper was given a month break after a seven-start spring campaign that lasted from August until November.

Among the highlights for the winner of three of seven starts were a win in the Group 3 Norman Robinson Stakes and a runner-up effort in the Listed UCI Stakes.

He started among the top fancies in the Victoria Derby and produced a strong showing to finish fourth and pick up $68,000 in prizemoney.

Connections took a punt when shelling out $260,000 at the 2011 Inglis Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale but they are likely to be repaid with the future stallion prospect already bringing home nearly $250,000 in prize takings.
