Into The Red Adds Intrigue to 2013 Champagne Classic

Top Brisbane trainer Kelso Wood has added some extra spice to the Group 2 2013 Champagne Classic (1200m) by throwing first starter Into The Red into the two-year-old race at Eagle Farm.

As soon as the son of Not A Single Doubt was named in the field, there was plenty of buzz about just how good the colt might be.

Wood won this race with Sizzling last year and has a knack for peaking his horses perfectly for the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.

But just how good is the unraced youngster? Into The Red hasn’t been seen in a public trial but the market suggests he has ability.

The mysterious galloper is currently a $5.50 second favourite in Champagne Classic betting .

But Wood was quick to quash thoughts that he may be about to unveil racing’s next superstar, suggesting he would be happy if he could run a place.

“I don’t know what everyone is raving about. He’s no world beater,” Wood told News Limited.

“I won this race with Sizzling last year, but he’d had a bit of racing. This fellow we’re still learning about.

“Ideally I would have preferred to start in an easier race, but he’s not a QTIS horse so he would be running for not much money at all if I ran him at a Wednesday meeting.”

Among the horses Into The Red will have to beat if he is to win on debut is Patinack Farm’s colt Hooked who is unbeaten from two starts.

The Casino Prince juvenile is a $3.40 favourite after a thumping three-length win on debut last month was backed up with a one-length win at his second outing.
