2013 Queensland Guineas Target for Shoreham

Saab Hasan’s lightly-raced Reset gelding Shoreham will look to add some black type to their record when they resume racing in the $120,000 Listed Manfred Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield Racecourse as they look to earn a Group 1 assignment later in the year.

Originally Hasan was eyeing off the $600,000 Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) at Flemington on March 2 as a possible target for Shoreham, winner of the Ken Cox 2YO Handicap (1420m) at Flemington last time out back on June 23.

However after a virus ripped through his Melbourne stables five months ago those plans were put on hold with Shoreman, one of eight horses in Hasan’s small team that was forcibly spelled, only just regaining full fitness recently.

“It’s been tough I can tell you but I’m starting to see a little bit of blue sky now,” Hasan said.

“We spelled him after the win (in June) but then he picked up the virus and had to go out again.

“He came back from a spell and looked phenomenal but four weeks ago the virus or a similar virus occurred again and we had to stop and treat him but everything looks fine again now.”

His stable star Shoreman has a tough first-up assignment this weekend facing six smart rivals in the Manfred Stakes including Peter Snowden’s Golden Rose runner-up Albrecht and the undefeated Peter Moody-trained Royal Haunt who are both heading towards the Australian Guineas.

And while on paper the 1200m looks a little short of Shoreman’s preferred distance, their work at Flemington this week boosted Hasan’s confidence that they would be sharp enough for the sprint.

“Brad (Rawiller) came out on Tuesday morning and he was really pleased with how he went,” he said.

“He is the sort of horse that needs to be given time to settle and then work through his gears and from barrier two he should be able to get some nice cover and be hitting the line strongly.”

While the Australian Guineas has been ruled out for Shoreham, another Guineas race could be on the agenda if they come back well with Hasan naming the $150,000 Bendigo Guineas (1400m) on Saturday March 16 as a possibility.

He is also considering a trip to Queensland for the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival mid-year where the $250,000 Group 2 Queensland Guineas (1600m) at Eagle Farm Racecourse on June 8 could be a possibility.

“If he returns to his best form we’ll aim at Bendigo and then maybe head up to Brisbane for the Queensland Guineas after that because he loves wet tracks and there’s every chance we’ll strike one at that time of year,” Hasan said.
