2013 Glasshouse Handicap Win to Come Someday

After a couple of close calls this Queensland Winter Racing Carnival ace Brisbane horseman Kelso Wood is hoping Saturday’s Glasshouse Handicap 2013 will be Someday’s time to shine.

The Falvelon four-year-old has been racing very consistently this time in including their last two runs in black type company.

Two back they were defeated under half a length by Tokamak in the Listed Strawberry Road Handicap (1600m) at Eagle Farm before they backed up at the same track and distance a fortnight later when third to  the Rob Heathcote-trained Fire Up Fifi in last Saturday’s Listed Open Mile.

While Heathcote is eyeing the Group 1 spring riches in Melbourne with Fire Up Fifi who he hopes to take to the 2013 Myer Classic, Someday will back-up this weekend in the $175,000 Listed Reed Property Group Glasshouse Handicap (1400m) on the Sunshine Coast.

They will face a number of the same rivals they have been in Brisbane including Strawberry Road Handicap winner Tokamak but Wood isn’t too concerned believing the horse’s luck will change if they can race closer to the pace in the Glasshouse.

Someday will be ridden by their jockey from last Saturday Michael Cahill again who replaced Chris Munce despite having Wood fuming over their strange Open Mile ride.

In a race where no one seemed to want to take the lead Cahill had Someday up near the front much earlier than expected but then dropped them right back to second last before trying to charge home again late.

“I didn’t really want to lead; I wanted to be in the first few but I wanted a horse to follow,” Cahill explained.

“I gave him a dig to come across and tried to get a nice run behind them, but I was a victim of circumstance after that.

“Everything changed and I was behind a few horses; I wasn’t in a helicopter, to be able to fly over them.”

Wood was so angry he could barely say two words to Cahill post-race but has stuck with them giving them a chance to atone at Caloundra.

“I thought he should have ended up in the box seat or probably led with the slow pace – there is not much more I can say,” Wood said this week.

“I didn’t say much to anyone after the race. There wasn’t much to say.

“The horse is well and provided everything goes well the next couple of days, he will be going to the Glasshouse.”

Wood will also be represented in Saturday’s feature by his reigning Glasshouse Handicap winner Belltone, the Brahms seven-year-old out to atone for a failed last start run at Eagle Farm.

After a nice second-u win in the Group 3 BRC Sprint (1350m) at Doomben in May Belltone was found out in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) when seven lengths away 16th to surprise winner Linton when beating home just two other runners.
