2013 Caulfield Guineas Awaits Prince Harada

2013 Caulfield Guineas Awaits Prince Harada

Exciting Victorian colt Prince Harada justified the pre-race hype and confirmed himself as a 2013 Caulfield Guineas contender at Moonee Valley on Saturday.

After a dominant debut win at Ballarat last month, the youngster was sent out in the Alternate Railway Handicap as an odds-on favourite.

The Haradasun colt gave favourite punters an early fright when bombing the start before settling at the back of the field.

But the buzz about the rising three-year-old wasn’t for nothing as he came from last at the turn to comfortably reel in his rivals and claim a one-length win.

Vasil told media after the race that he is one of the best horses he has trained and is looking forward to bigger things to come this spring.

“I know it’s winter and you see a lot of horses come good in winter and people say outrageous things,” Vasil said.

“I’m always very conservative about how I rate my horses, but I’d say potentially he’s one of the best I’ve ever had,” Vasil said.

With just two starts to his name, it would be tempting to push on and pick up prize money in often weak winter races.

But Vasil is keeping his focus firmly on the future and will now send Prince Harada for a spell before bringing him back for a spring campaign.

“I’ll back off him and give him a little bit of a breather and set him for the Caulfield Guineas,” Vasil said.

“You can’t keep going from here right through to the Spring and see him stay up for that long.”

The $1 million Caulfield Guineas (1600m) will take place on October 13.
