Solzhenitsyn Sydney Bound for 2013 Doncaster Mile

Queensland Group 1 winner Solzhenitsyn will bypass the early autumn in Melbourne and will instead have a three-start 2013 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival campaign geared towards the Group 1 2013 Doncaster Mile (1600m).


Solzhenitsyn will be aimed at the Doncaster Mile.

The Robert Heathcote-trained gelding will have just a three-start program before returning to his home state in time to prepare for the 2013 Queensland Winter Racing Carnival.

The six-year-old will run first-up in the Group 2 2013 Canterbury Stakes (1300m) on March 23 before tackling prestigious Group 1 events the 2013 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) and the Doncaster.

Solzhenitsyn has been back in work for three weeks and Heathcote is pleased with how he has returned from a spell following an excellent spring campaign.

“This will be his third week back in the stable and he looks really well since his spell,” Heathcote said.

The son of St Petersburg delivered Heathcote his second Group 1 win with a barnstorming finish in the Toorak Handicap and also scored third-place finishes in the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) and the Group 2 Crystal Mile (1600m).

Heathcote said one winter goal for the big gelding will be the Group 2 2013 Hollindale Stakes at the Gold Coast.

Solzhenitsyn is one of a number of runners from the stable of Queensland’s leading trainer to be given southern assignments this autumn.

Fellow Group 1 winner Woorim will make a trip to Melbourne and return to the scene of his biggest success when he defends his title in the 2013 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) at Caulfield on February 23.

Woorim will also run in the 2013 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) while fellow sprinter Buffering will head straight to Sydney for a first-up hit-out in the Group 1 2013 TJ Smith (1200m) on April 13.
