Oasis Bloom Budding Ahead of 2013 Caulfield Cup Bid

Connections of Group 1 performing mare Oasis Bloom are happy with the way the four-year-old has come through her recent spell and recovery from injury, eyeing off the spring riches later this year including the Caulfield Cup 2013.

The Peter Morgan and Craig Widdison co-trained trained daughter of Al Maher is only lightly raced with seven starts to her name so far for two wins, the most notable of which was her tight victory over Spirit Of Song in the Group 2 Stocks Stakes (1600m) at Moonee Valley last September.

Oasis Bloom caught the eye in her grand final assignment last prep when a close fourth beaten under a length by Appearance, subsequent winner of the Group 1 Coolmore Classic – Queen Of The Turf Stakes double this autumn, in the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m).

She missed out on bringing that form to the Melbourne Festival of Racing this autumn however, the bulking galloper having chipped a joint in the Myer Classic.

Having made a full recovery Oasis Bloom could be stepped up past the mile this coming Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival with Morgan aiming for the sky with her.

“She’s won over 1700 metres at Flemington but we think she’s going to be a good mile and a half horse,” he said.

If all goes to plan Oasis Bloom could go all the way to the $2.65 million Group 1 BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m) in October, a race that has been in the back of her minds since last spring.

“She’s got a good pedigree, we probably thought at one stage going into last spring we could have aimed at her something like the Caulfield Cup,” Morgan said.

“She’s a horse that can race up on the pace and she’ll stay all day I reckon.”

Exactly how she will qualify for the Caulfield Cup 2013 however is yet to be decided with a number of lead-up options being considered.

“She’s a Group 2 winner but I don’t think that qualifies her for the cups, so we’ll just have to have a look at which path we take,” Morgan said.

“I like to give most of my horses 13 or 14 weeks anyway before they run.

“I’m a little bit old school with my training, similar to (Bart) Cummings or (C.S.) Hayes.”

Futures Caulfield Cup betting is already open at our preferred online betting agency bookmaker.com.au who have Murray Baker’s talented Kiwi colt It’s A Dundeel installed at the top of the odds at a quote of $7.

Oasis Bloom meanwhile is yet to be added to the markets but will be offered at the best price at bookamaker.com.au – home of the famous $500 bonus welcome bet offer!
