2013 Queensland Derby in Sights Of Rhythm To Spare

Lightly-race gelding Rhythm To Spare is the latest Kiwi to join the assault on next month’s Group 1 2013 Queensland Derby (2400m) at Eagle Farm.

While the likes of Derby favourite Survived and Murray Baker’s Usainity have already received plenty of hype, Rhythm To Spare is only warming up.

The Michael Moroney-trained galloper began his career in New Zealand before joining Moroney’s Flemington base in April.

He was originally being set on a New Zealand Derby path before injury intervened following a runner-up finish to eventual NZ Derby placegetter Castlzeberg in January.

After two runner-up finishes in New Zealand to begin his career, the son of Pins won on Australian debut at Bendigo in April and backed that up with a 1600m at Sandown on Wednesday.

“We really thought he was our Derby horse in New Zealand, but he went shin sore after he ran second to Castlzeberg,” Moroney told TVN on Wednesday.

Jockey Glen Boss was happy to endorse the raw youngster for bigger things to come.

“He has a good action and really good turn of foot…I suspect he has a very good future,” Boss said.

In the Queensland Derby betting market, Rhythm To Spare is now rated a $15 chance.

Also pressing Derby claims at Sandown on Wednesday was Peter Moody’s gelding Prince Jester who blew his rivals away with a 4 1/2 length demolition.

Moody is set to send the emerging stayer north to chase back-to-back titles in the race after winning last year with the talented Brambles.
