Keep The Cash Needs Speed in 2013 Tasmanian Derby

They may be more suited to 2400m then the 2200m of Sunday’s Tasmanian Derby 2013 at Hobart Racecourse but Broadmarsh horseman Brendan McShane is hoping that the speed is on to help his youngster Keep The Cash in the black type Tasmanian Summer Racing Carnival feature.

One of 10 three-year-olds engaged in this year’s $100,000 Listed Schweppes Tasmanian Derby (2200m), Keep The Cash is drawn in barrier five with top jockey Dwayne Dunn booked for the ride.

The Keep The Faith gelding comes off two disappointing runs in black type company from last month but McShane is confident of improvement as they step up in distance.

After a good win at Hobart over 1400m back in December Keep The Cash travelled to Launceston on January 2 for the Listed Tasmanian Guineas (1600m) but could only manage to finish 11 lengths away 10th behind Mister John with Darren Gauci in the saddle.

They backed up 18 days later in the Listed Hobart Guineas (2100m) to run a well-beaten fourth with eight lengths separating them and the winner What Life Brings.

McShane believes Keep The Cash’s best distance will be the mile and a half but for now he has his fingers crossed luck goes their way in Sunday’s Derby, where they will face the likes of the Darren Weir-trained Gingerboy coming off a win at Stawell, Peter Moody’s visiting Redoute’s Choice colt Strive To Excel, in-form Haradasun gelding Endzone and local champ Kenjorwood.

“He’s a one-paced stayer and we didn’t see the best of him in the Guineas (2100m) a fortnight ago at Elwick,” McShane said.

“It’s a shame the Derby is only 2200 metres because everywhere across the world the distance is 2400 metres except for here.

“He would be a realistic chance if it was a mile and a half, however at 2200 metres he will need luck to go his way.

“Races at this distance [2200m] can develop into a sit and sprint, so we are hoping that it’s run at a genuine speed.”

McShane will also be represented in Sunday’s $100,000 Listed Elwick 2YO Stakes (1100m) by his smart filly Spinning Jenny, another Dwayne Dunn mount, who backs up from a successful debut taking on the likes of four time winner Grand Tycoon and John Sadler’s unraced Victorian raider Commanding Star
