It’s A Dundeel Back Ahead of 2013 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival

In a strong heat the Murray Baker-trained three-year-old finished in third position behind Gai Waterhouse’s pair Landing and Pierro.

Other well-known gallopers included in the trial were Chris Waller-trained import Gatewood and Waterhouse’s gelding Raceway.

Star colt Pierro has already been confirmed as a first-up starter in the Group 2 2013 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill on March 2 and it is likely he will be joined by It’s A Dundeel.

Despite residing in New Zealand, It’s A Dundeel has raced six of his seven career starts in Australia. He is stabled at Baker’s son Bjorn’s Warwick Farm base and certainly proved himself an above average racehorse during the spring.

The son of High Chaparral was unbeaten in the first five starts of his career before the streak ended when he was upset by Super Cool to finish second in the Moonee Valley Vase.

Baker then backed him up a week later in the Victorian Derby and while he ran home strongly, he failed to show his usual zip and was beaten five lengths in seventh position.

Highlight results during his first Australian campaign included winning the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes ahead of Proisir and also taking out the Group 3 Gloaming Stakes.

It is expected It’s A Dundeel will be set on a Sydney autumn path geared towards the primary goal of the Group 1 2013 Australian Derby (2400m) in April.

The autumn action really heats up at Flemington tomorrow for the return of Black Caviar and bookmaker.com.au have some exciting markets to get involved in.
