Queensland Guineas 2014 Trio for Waterhouse

Sydney-based Hall of Fame trainer Gai Waterhouse has confirmed she’ll be triply represented in the 2014 Queensland Guineas in Brisbane on Saturday after floating up her third nominee Longma this week.

Yesterday there were 26 three-year-old nominated for this year’s $350,000 Group 2 Sky Racing Queensland Guineas (1400m) running at Eagle Farm on Queensland Oaks Day.

Three of those come from Waterhouse’s Tulloch Lodge stables.

It already looked likely Waterhouse would saddle-up her Inglis Scone Guineas second and third placegetters Liberty’s Choice and Ryker, but now it seems Longma is set to join their stable mates in the Queensland Guineas acceptances.

Sebring colt Longma travelled from Sydney to Brisbane alongside Waterhouse’s 2014 JJ Atkins hope Almalad this week and is now safely in the sunshine state.

A winner of two of their eight starts to date, the Queensland Guineas will be Longma’s chance to atone for their last Group run when still prepared by their first trainer Mick Price.

Price prepared them for their opening three career starts that ended with a disappointing 11th behind Éclair Big Bang in last September’s Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m).

Unsurprisingly on the back of that Caulfield Guineas plans were shelved and Longma was transferred to Waterhouse’s care under whose guidance they raced for the first time this April.

They’ve since won one of their five starts for Waterhouse when taking out a 1400m no-metro-wins race at Warwick Farm on May 7.

Their last start was then at Randwick last Saturday when a close fourth beaten under half a length by Abbasso in a BenchMark 80 over the same distance in an effort Waterhouse described as luckless.

Waterhouse’s other Queensland Guineas hopes are then the aforementioned Liberty’s Choice and Ryker.

Redoute’s Choice colt Liberty’s Choice has been hit and miss to date, the Canberra Guineas third placegetter having one just one of their 13 starts to date.

Last time out on May 17 they were a close second behind Cosmic Endeavour in the $400,000 Inglis Scone Guineas (1400m) in a race where stable mate Ryker ran third.

Another Redoute’s Choice prodigy, Ryker came into the Scone race on the back of a fifth to Chautauqua in the Group 3 Hawkesbury Guineas (1400m), before which they ran sixth over the mile in a Randwick Group 3 and won the Albury Guineas.

The 2014 Queensland Guineas field is due for release on Wednesday and will be published right here at Races.com.au along with the barriers.
