Rebel Dane on Track for All Aged Stakes

Trainer Gary Portelli is confident classy sprinter Rebel Dane is in peak condition ahead of this weekend’s featured Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) at Royal Randwick, having completed a strong piece of work on the Warwick Farm course proper on Tuesday.

Champion over 1400m in the 2013 edition of the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes at Caulfield, Portelli told TVN he could not be happier with the lead up and condition of Rebel Dane ahead of this weekend’s feature race.

“He went through the 1000m in about 1min 6secs and quickened up to run his last 400m in 23.3secs and he was never out of second gear” Portelli said.

“It was perfect work, the riders didn’t overdo it, he didn’t leave it on track and he did enough to make sure he is fit enough for Saturday.”

Following weeks of inclement weather over the Randwick track, officials have confirmed the rail will be moved out to the 9 metres position for Saturday’s race card; something Portelli confessed is a concern.

“I just hope we don’t have to get to a situation where we are changing tactics in a Group 1 race to suit the bias” Portelli said.

“I hope that with the rail moving out that far that the track doesn’t become leader-ish.

“I would have preferred if they moved it back in to the true and let the jockey work it out.”

Securing an impressive total of six wins and two places from only thirteen competitive race starts to date, Rebel Dane contested a particularly strong 2013 preparation; winning the Group 3 Show County Quality (1200m) first-up and finishing fourth amongst classy company in the Group 3 Bobbie Lewis Quality (1200m) prior to his Sir Rupert Clarke triumph.

Returning to the track in typically strong condition this time in, the California Dane entire produced a strong turn of foot to finish second to world-leading sprinter Lankan Rupee in the Group 1 T.J. Smith Stakes (1200m) on day 1 of The Championships at Randwick two weeks ago. is currently offering the best early odds on all Randwick races this weekend, including the Group 1 All Aged Stakes!
