Someday Wins 2013 Glasshouse Handicap for Wood

Saturday was finally the right day for Someday at the Sunshine Coast with the Kelso Wood-trained galloper enjoying a wet track at Caloundra to win the Glasshouse Handicap 2013.

All week the Brisbane-based Wood had been singing his Falvelon four-year-old Someday praises.

The punters listened and the gelding responded with a barnstorming win the $175,000 Listed Reed Property Group Glasshouse Handicap (1400m).

It was a wet edition of Caloundra Cup Day on the weekend with the Heavy (9) course playing into the hands of mudlarks.

One of those was the Michael Cahill-riddedn Someday who came into the race off some outstanding Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival form.

After a close second in the Listed Strawberry Road Handicap (1600m) on June 8 their final lead-up run was in the Listed Open Mile over the same distance at Eagle Farm on June 22 where they were third to Fire Up Fifi.

They handled the short seven day back-up without issue then on Saturday overcoming the outside barrier 14 of 14 to beat home Noel Doyle’s Celtic Dancer ($14) by three and a half lengths as the $3.50 favourite.

The Glasshouse Handicap trifecta was then completed by Wood’s other runner Belltone ($9.50) who was nearly five lengths off their winning stablemate.

It was a great Glasshouse Handicap result for Wood who stuck with jockey Cahill for the ride despite being angry with their performance on the horse in the Open Mile.

“The stewards accepted his (Cahill’s) explanation and when things settled down the next day and I watched the race I had a re-think,” Wood explained.

“He’s the leading rider here. They don’t come any better so I decided to stick and his ride today was top-notch.”

Cahill meanwhile was relieved to make amends with the winning ride and was happy with how the horse handled the Heavy conditions.

“Once he got onto some better footing about the 600-metre mark and started to travel I thought he was going to win,” Cahill said.

“He put paid to them pretty quickly and no horse has sprinted away from them on that track today which adds even more to his win.”

After proving their class in the Glasshouse Someday is now bound for bigger things during a Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival campaign where they will join their star Queensland Guineas winning stablemate Sizzling.

“I’m sure he’s capable of winning a good race and he can tag along with Sizzling when he goes south,” he said.

“He should be unbeaten since I’ve had him. Things have gone wrong and he’s been badly ridden so it was a relief to see him finally win.”
