Doncaster Mile 2013 In Sights of Good Ba Ba

Eleven-year-old Good Ba Ba will be set on a 2013 Doncaster Mile (1600m) mission at the 2013 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival after showing promise on Australian debut on Tuesday.

Having his first start under new trainer Rick Hore-Lacy, the former Hong Kong galloper was solid and finished off quicklyto take fourth place in the Group 3 Standish Handicap (1200m).

Hore-Lacy confirmed to TVN the veteran will be aimed at the Doncaster but has not yet finalised the exact lead-up plan.

“It was a big effort yesterday and he’s as bright as a button this morning,” Hore-Lacy said.

“The plan is to run in the Doncaster at Easter, his plan between now and then we will play by ear after we get through the next two runs.”

Good Ba Ba will next be seen in the Listed 2013 Kensington Stakes (1000m) at Flemington on January 19 before turning out in the Group 3 2013 Carlyong Cup (1600m) at Caulfield on February 9.

A winner of 16 of 45 starts, the son of Lear Fan was one of the best known gallopers in Hong Kong, amassing an oustanding record since scoring his debut victory in the Kowloon Tong Plate at Sha Tin in 2005.

He is a seven-time Group 1 winner, including three victories in the prestigious Hong Kong Mile with other highlights being two Stewards’ Cups and success in both the Champions Mile and the Queen’s Silver Jubilee Cup.

Hore-Lacy ended 2012 with a bang on Saturday when raw gelding Clevadude asserted himself as on the top fancies for the Magic Millions Classic when charging to a start-to-finish victory in the Sportingbet Plate at Moonee Valley.

The Bel Espirt gelding is now jostling for favouritism in the $2 million two-year-old race with Clarry Connors-trained filly Assail.
