Bullish Win Points to 2013 Coolmore Stud Stakes

Gai Waterhouse has unleashed another possible spring Group 1 winner with her progressive colt Bull Point emerging as a Coolmore Stud Stakes 2013 contender with their weekend win in Sydney.

A rising three-year-old son of boom sire Fastnet Rock, Bull Point easily got the better of their Rosehill rivals on the weekend taking out the $85,000 Forum Group Sprint Handicap (1200m) by three lengths.

It was their second win from three career starts to date following a two length win on debut at Randwick on June 10 and a second over 1200m at Rosehill at the start of the month.

Ridden in all three rides by Nash Rawiller Bull Point carried a big 59kg for the latest turf triumph giving away five kilos to the runner-up Mr Entertainer ($31) as they saluted for the punters as the $1.70 odds-on favourite.

“He never went out of second gear,” Waterhouse said on Saturday after Bull Point wandered up through the field before cruising to the line.

Rawiller agreed it was an impressive effort from the untapped colt and was back on his fan list after losing some enthusiasm after their last start second.

“Today he showed me what he could do,” the hoop said on Saturday.

“He jumped better and travelled well. When I asked him to go he lengthened very well.

“He’s got a bright future.”

There was a controversy for third spot meanwhile with Wouldn’t It Be Nice disqualified after jockey Glyn Schofield weighed out at 59.1kg but came back post-race 58.3kg leading to the promotion of Killcareless who was originally fourth over.

While there’s still a way to go Waterhouse is confident the early progression shown by the youngster is enough to consider them a shot at the $500,000 Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on Victoria Derby Day, Saturday November 2, during the coveted Melbourne Cup Carnival.

“He’ll target some of the sprint races for three-year-olds and hopefully end up in the Coolmore (Stud Stakes),” she said of the aptly Coolmore-owned horse.

She also ruled Bull Point out of the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) on September 7 saying they would be kept to the shorter distance features.

“He won’t be going to the Golden Rose,” Waterhouse confirmed.
