Jacquinot Bay “Big Hope” for 2013 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival

Warwick Farm trainer Guy Walter knows lightly-raced gelding Jacquinot Bay can play a role at the 2013 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival, he’s just not sure where yet.

Despite being five years old, Jacquinot Bay has had just six starts from which he has been able to record five victories.

Walter admits he is still untapped and has a lot of improving to do but is confident he can step up at the Autumn Carnival and has even nominated him for the 2013 Doncaster Mile.

“He’s nominated for the Doncaster if he can get to that level, he’s got a long way to go but he’s a very promising horse,” Walter told Sky Radio.

After winning his first four starts at Goulburn in dominant style between June and August, Walter brought the son of Galileo to the city.

He finished second to Gai Waterhouse’s highly-rated gelding Strawberry Boy first-up before scoring his first metropolitan win in a BM85 at Randwick in September.

Walter is confident he can continue to improve but is not quite sure what his best distance will be as he rises through the grades.

“I’ve got big hopes for him,” Walter said.

“He’s come back a stronger horse as you would expect.

“He hasn’t beaten a lot yet but just gives the impression he’s a horse on the up.”

If Jacquinot Bay does make it to the Doncaster he will form part of a strong Walter-trained presence in the prestigious mile as Group 1-winning mares Streama and Appearance are both being aimed at the race.

Both will follow a similar five-race plan that includes Group 1 goals in the 2013 Coolmore Classic, 2013 Queen Elizabeth Stakes as well as the Doncaster.
