Laing Delighted With Lord Of The Sky

Trainer Robbie Laing is delighted with the condition of Lord Of The Sky and is confident that the classy colt will record his third straight win in the Guinot International Handicap (1000m) at Caulfield tomorrow.

Lord Of The Sky made his racing debut with a fourth place finish in the International Breakfast Plate (1118m) at Werribee on June 25 last year and recorded his maiden race win with a dominant victory over $1 million colt Monkstone in the Procal Dairies Handicap (1000m) at Caulfield on July 13.

The Danerich colt spent the spring in the spelling paddock before returning to the races at Caulfield on December 7 with a comfortable win in the National Patient Transport Handicap (1000m).

Laing was not particularly happy with the condition of Lord Of The Sky heading into this first-up assignment, but told Racing Ahead this morning that he is thrilled with the three-year-old heading into the Guinot International Handicap on Wednesday.

“It is the first time that I have been happy with him since June,” Laing said.

“He looks magnificent and his work has been fantastic since his win there a month ago.

“He has drawn out wide, but he has so much natural speed that he should cross pretty easily.

“He will be hard to beat with that much weight on his back.”

The veteran trainer has big plans for Lord Of The Sky during the 2014 Autumn Racing Carnival and, depending on how he performs tomorrow, he will step up in class to contest either WJ Adams Stakes (1000m) at Caulfield on February 1 or the Group 2 Rubiton Stakes (1100m) at the same venue on February 8.

“I think that he has the ability to do it,” Laing said.

“Some of the sectionals that he can run on the training track are fantastic.

“Hopefully he can win tomorrow and then in a few weeks’ time he will go to either the WJ Adams at Caulfield or a week later in the Rubiton.

“He will have to stand and up and be counted then.”

Laing already has a number of talented gallopers heading towards the 2014 Autumn Racing Carnival; with Boomwaa a chance to contest the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on February 22 and Polanski on track to run in the Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m) at Royal Randwick on April 12.

Leading online bookie has already released a market for the 2014 Blue Diamond Stakes and Boomwaa is currently available at odds of $11.
