“New South Welshman” Carry Me Bluey 2013 Australia Day Cup Contender

When Carry Me Bluey lines up in the Listed $100,000 2013 Australia Day Cup (2400m) at Warwick Farm on Saturday, he will be doing so as a New South Wales horse.

The five-year-old gelding will be Norm Hilton’s first starter since moving from Toowoomba to Newcastle as the lure of better prizemoney finally convinced him to relocate.

Hilton has never been shy to travel horses south of the border and tasted some success on the biggest stage in 2011 when Bold Glance overcame a big price to run third in the Doncaster Mile.

The 57-year-old considered setting up base on Warwick Farm as well but thought the hustle and bustle of living in Sydney might be too big a change coming from Toowoomba.

Carry Me Bluey was previously thought of as a miler but a recent experiment to test him over a trip has proven fruitful enough to throw him into stakes company this weekend.

The Carry The Flag gelding ran over the top of his rivals in his last start in Queensland to win the Channel Seven BM90 Hanidcap (2100m) by a half-length at Eagle Farm on January 5.

He has been a consistent performer throughout his career, winning nine of 31 starts and finishing in the minor placings on nine other occasions.

It will be no easy feat to claim the Australia Day Cup though, with a strong list of nominations announced yesterday.

Gai Waterhouse has entered four of her charges including Gosford Cup runner-up Reuben Percival and veteran stayer Tullamore while other key runners include Group 1 winner Fiumicino and Gerald Ryan’s veteran Ironstein.
