2013 Ramornie Handicap Off See The World’s Agenda

Despite earlier rumours the Joe Pride-trained See The World was Ramornie Handicap 2013 bound next month the Sydney horseman has confirmed the unhappy traveler would be staying at home ruling out a trip to the Grafton Cup Carnival.

Danzero six-year-old See The World, a winner of eight of their 30 starts, was last seen running 11th to Belltone in the Group 3 BRC Sprint (1350m), a better run than their place suggests with only three and a half lengths between them and the winner.

They backup this Saturday back home at Royal Randwick for the popular $85,000 Winter Dash (1200m) where Pride hopes they can return to form in familiar surroundings.

Recent winner of the Listed Maurice McCarton Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill, See The World proved to Pride he was no traveler during their trip to Queensland chasing the winter riches in the sunshine state.

That means that despite the hype the horse was not being considered for a shot at the lucrative $150,000 Listed Ramornie Handicap (1200m) at Grafton Racecourse on July 10.

Winner of Saturday’s Winter Dash is also exempt from ballot for the Ramornie, an additional prize that will be lost on See The World should they take out the feature sprint from their nice barrier two draw with Glyn Schofield in the saddle.

“It’s the perfect race for him and he will be very hard to beat,” Pride said of the Winter Dasy.

Further boosting Pride’s confidence and the horse’s hopes for the weekend is the likelihood of a mud track at Randwick.

It’s currently rated a Heavy (9) and isn’t expected to be upgraded much between now and Saturday

From now the plan was to keep them close to base with Randwick the likely furthest trip they would embark on.

“He doesn’t travel. You put him on a float and he loses weight,” Pride said.

“Randwick is about as far as he goes.

Still there are a number of suitable end of season winter features for See The World to target over the coming weeks including the $100,000 Listed Civic Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens on July 6 and the $100,000 Listed Winter Stakes (1500m) at the same track two weeks later.

“I will keep him here for races like the Civic Stakes and the Winter Stakes. There are a few options here in Sydney,” Pride confirmed.

Pride will also saddle up Earnest Ernest in the 10-horse Winter Dash field on Saturday, Jay Ford’s mount drawn in gate nine but carrying the 54kg minimum whereas See The World is the 59.5kg topweight.

Seven-year-old Sandtrap gelding Earnest Ernest hasn’t finished in the money since their Warwick Farm win back on Australia Day and is likely to start as a roughie in the markets, although Pride is hoping they can surprise with a bit of luck.

“There’s a bit of Stephen Bradbury about him,” Pride said.

“Sometimes it all just seems to happen in front of him and then he gets up and wins.”
