I’m All The Talk’s Vain Stakes 2013 Return Silenced

Sydney sprinter I’m All The Talk has had their three-year-old debut delayed with the Gary Portelli-trained colt to bypass a run in Saturday’s 2013 Vain Stakes.

Winner of the Group 3 Skyline Stakes (1200m) by a nice three and a half lengths back in March, the son of Stratum failed their latest assignment.

They failed to match them in the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) finishing seven lengths away 10th to the Gai Waterhouse-trained winning filly Overreach in the April 6 showdown.

Spelled after the Slipper I’m All The Talk, a $40,000 buy from last year’s William Inglis and Son Sydney Classic Yearling Sales, has been maturing and strengthening ahead of the Sydney and Melbourne Spring Racing Carnivals.

They have had two winning trials since their last run too, both in Sydney.

Their latest was a very narrow victory over 900m in a smart 53.80 when ridden by Hugh Bowman.

Portelli was looking to run them first-up this Saturday at Caulfield in the $135,000 Group 3 Vain Stakes (1100m) where they would face the likes of Caulfield Guineas-bound Clevadude and Peter Snowden’s undefeated Safeguard.

However he’s had to put back their resuming run after examining post-trial win blood results from the promising galloper.

“He didn’t trial as well as I thought he would and blood tests showed his white count wasn’t quite right,” Portelli told AAP over the weekend.

“It means he misses the Vain Stakes but there are plenty of other races for him.

“We won’t rush.”

Portelli now expects them to return a week later at Warwick Farm instead in the $125,000 Group 3 Show Country Quality (1200m) before they look at where to next.

“He remains on target for the Show County Quality at Warwick Farm on Saturday week,” Portelli said.

“We’ll keep him to shorter races. We aren’t going to commit to anything yet.

“He is a hard horse to keep the weight on and I need to let him tell me how he is going.

“He had a couple of hard runs in the autumn but we were committed to a plan. This time we will let him tell us.”

Portelli is also gearing up for the return of his Royal Sovereign Stakes winner Rebel Dane.

The California Dane stallion, now four, had a strong start to the autumn having also finished a nose away second to Pierro in the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) in the mud.

A fourth in the Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m), their first look at the mile, followed before things went amiss in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m).

They could only manage to run 10th to the winner Pierro, now retired and serving at stud, in their maiden Group 1 start albeit beaten only two and a half lengths.

Rebel Dane had a winning Warwick Farm trial back on July 26 but their spring options are also wide open.

Their trainer did admit that they would likely have a quiet end-of-year prep however before it was all systems go during next year’s Sydney Spring Racing Carnival where they would be aimed at the $350,000 Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m) at Rosehill in late March.
