Light 2013 Autumn Racing Carnival for Fiorente

Gai Waterhouse’s top notch import Fiorente will have just a light 2013 Autumn Racing Carnival with the Randwick trainer keeping her eyes firmly set on going one better at the 2013 Melbourne Cup.

The son of Monsun overcame a big price in what was her first start under Waterhouse to fly home and claim runner-up honours behind Green Moon in Australia’s biggest race.

Fiorente has returned to work but Waterhouse is in no rush to get him back to the race track and any role he plays in the autumn will only be minor.

Waterhouse’s Racing Manager, Bruce Slade, revealed to racingnetwork the import is in good condition but suggested making it to the 2013 Australian Cup (2000m) on March 9 could be a tough ask.

“He’s done really well in the paddock and looks sensational, but Gai won’t be rushing him to do anything,” Slade said.

While the plans for the five-year-old are yet to be announced, he was one of 190 horses nominated for the 2013 Doncaster Mile which will take place at Randwick on April 20.

Fiorente arrived in Australia for the Melbourne Cup on the back of some excellent results in the UK including a three-length win ahead of well-regarded gallopers Joshua Tre and Red Cadeaux in the Group 2 Princess Of Wales’s Stakes.

Waterhouse had 14 entrants in the initial stage of Doncaster Mile nominations including last year’s winner More Joyous and boom colt Pierro.

More Joyous is likely to follow a similar path to her last autumn campaign where she was unbeaten from four starts, including three times at Group 1 level, while Pierro could run first-up in the Group 1 2013 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) at Flemington before returning to Sydney.
