Philippi Can Earn 2013 Australian Derby Start

Unbeaten colt Philippi could find himself at the starting line in the Group 1 2013 Australian Derby at Randwick in April depending how he fares in his first few starts at the 2013 Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.

Philippi is likely to resume in the CS Hayes Stakes in the Autumn

Trainer Michael Kent highlighted the Group 3 2013 CS Hayes Stakes (1400m) as a likely first-up target for the Chesnut colt before possibly heading to the Group 2 2013 Autumn Classic (1800m) and the Group 2 2013 Alister Clark Stakes (2040m).

Kent said his performances in those lead-up races will determine whether he is up to contesting the Australian Derby or the 2013 South Australia Derby in Adelaide.

“Depending on how he goes we might then either head to the Derby in either Sydney or Adelaide,” Kent told Racing Victoria.

“The ten furlongs (2000m) is really a good trip for him but he’s got enough quality and he relaxes well enough that he’d probably get over a trip as a three-year-old.”

Philippi signalled plenty of potential in his debut campaign during the Spring Carnival.

The son of Host won the BMW Plate by 2 1/2 lengths at Mornington first-up before continuing his success in the city.

He won the Sportingbet Handicap at Moonee Valley before scoring his first black-type victory in the Listed UCI Stakes at Flemington.

There was a thought Philippi may have gone on to bigger events during the spring but Kent played it safe with an eye to the future.

Kent said the promising stallion prospect had “grown and developed” during the break and has now been back in work for five or six weeks.
