Sangster Targets Ranvet Stakes 2013

Connections of last-start Auckland Cup winner Sangster have confirmed the smart Kiwi galloper will be back down under for the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival with the 2013 Ranvet Stakes on the cards while a trip to Singapore chasing international glory is looking less likely.

The Savabeel gelding first travelled to Australia in the spring of 2011 where they hit the headlines with a tight win in the Victoria Derby.

Their campaign in Melbourne last autumn however was far from successful with unplaced runs in the Australian Guineas (15th), Rosehill Guineas (16th) and Australian Derby (9th).

There only saving grace that prep was a third to Highly Recommended in the Group 2 Alister Clark Stakes (2040m) at the Valley, a race that plays out again this Friday night under the lights.

Sangster had a hit-and-miss summer but has been back to their best since their big three length victory in the Group 1 International Stakes (2000m) at Te Rapa in early Feb.

They backed up from that with another good effort to take out the Group 2 Avondale Gold Cup (2400m) before winning the Group 1 Auckland Cup on March 6 in their first look at the two miles.

In such hot form co-trainer Trent Busuttin admitted they were tempted to target the Singapore Cup in May with the multiple Group 1 winner.

Those plans however are likely to be shelved because of strict quarantine regulations which would meant he galloper wouldn’t be able to return to Australia in time for a shot at the $6.2 million Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m) on the first Tuesday of November at Flemington.

“We really wanted to go to this race – it’s a great opportunity,” Busuttin said.

“Australia take in only one scoop of quarantine horses a month from Singapore and we would miss that by two days.

“It means Sangster would be required to stay another month and that would make it impossible to give him a proper preparation for the Melbourne Cup if that’s the way we decided to go.

“If we could have got straight out of Singapore we’d be going for sure.”

Sydney’s $400,000 Group 1 Ranvet Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill Gardens on March 23 meanwhile is still on the agenda for their next race, a win in which would likely see connections fork out the hefty $60,000 late entry to get them into the $2.25 million Group 1 The BMW (2400m) on Golden Slipper Day, April 6.
