Don’t Get Excited Chasing Maiden Listed Win

Trainer Stephen Theodore is confident that progressive gelding Don’t Get Excited can record his maiden win at Listed level in the Kensington Stakes (1000m) at Flemington on Saturday.

Don’t Get Excited returned to the races after a brief freshen-up with a narrow win over Solsay and Anlon in the National Jockeys’ Trust Handicap (1200m) at Caulfield on December 7, but beat home just two runners when he was stepped up in class to contest the Listed Christmas Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on Boxing Day.

Theodore admitted that he was disappointed with the result of the Christmas Stakes, but believes that Don’t Get Excited can return to the winners stall if he gets a bit of luck down the famous Flemington straight this weekend.

“Without dwelling on it, he just didn’t get a lot of luck in the Christmas Stakes and the race didn’t pan out as we expected,” Theodore told AAP.

“In his last run by not getting any cover and wanting to charge up the hill, it probably taught him the wrong racing pattern and I didn’t want that to happen again.

“Dropping back to 1000 metres, hopefully he’ll get run off his feet early and get some cover and then see daylight at the right time.

“If he does that he’s got a good turn of foot.”

Don’t Get Excited has recorded an impressive five wins from eight starts since joining Theodore’s stable in July last year.

The four-year-old made his debut for his new stable with a tough win at Sandown on July 24 last year before taking out the Slickpix Handicap (1300m) and New Zealand Zealand Bloodstock Handicap (1300m) at the same venue.

Don’t Get Excited was sent to Perth for the Toll Express Handicap (1400m) at Morphettville Parks on September 7  and recorded a dominant four lengths victory, but his winning streak was ended when he finished fifth behind Molto Bene in the Listed Tavern Stakes (1410m) at Flemington on October 5.

The progressive gelding is currently on the third line of 2014 Kensington Stakes betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au, behind Kaiser Sun ($3.10) and Pocket Rockets ($5.50).
