Tuscan Fire Stoked for Adelaide Cup 2013 Bid

Ballarat horseman Dan O’Sullivan is excited to saddle up his progressive six-year-old Tuscan Fire at Flemington Racecourse this Saturday as the stayer prepares for an autumn campaign targeting the 2013 Adelaide Cup in March.

Tuscanos gelding Tuscan Fire is a veteran of 38 starts to date, eight of which they have won, most recently scoring an impressive two and a half length victory over the likes of Kutchinsky and Macedonian in a 2000m handicap at Flemington on New Year’s Day.

O’Sullivan was excited by what he saw in that win, the horse’s first since a five length effort and Sandown over the mile and a half back in May, and is gearing them up for a big autumn season.

They next race on Saturday back at Victoria’s number one track, Tuscan Fire nominated for the $100,000 Rain Lover Handicap (2500m) where they will take on a similar field to the one they so easily defeated last time out.

Tuscan Fire has only ever raced in black type company once before when they failed to make an impression finishing a distant 12th to Kidnapped in the 2010 SA Derby as a three-year-old but that could change this year.

Their trainer is again eyeing a Group race prize at South Australia’s Morphettville Racecourse with the $400,000 Group 2 Adelaide Cup (3200m) on March 11 seriously being considered.

The versatile runner could also target some feature jumps races at Oakbank or Warrnambool over the coming months after they won two hurdle races during the winter last year.

“He showed he is the right sort of horse for jumping and we are looking at the Yalumba Hurdle at Oakbank at Easter or the Galleywood at the Warrnambool later on,” O’Sullivan said.

“He’s looking for the 2500 metres now and should go well on Saturday.”
