Terravista Heading to 2014 Darley Classic

Terravista is set to return to Melbourne on Saturday week, just two weeks after his fast-finishing run in the 2014 Manikato Stakes.

Trainer Joseph Pride is keen to start the five-year-old gelding in the Group 1 Darley Classic (1200m) at Flemington after he came through the Manikato Stakes well.

The exciting sprinter may have finished fifth to Lankan Rupee in the Moonee Valley sprint race, but he was just under ½ a length off the winner. It was a great run considering Terravista was held up badly at the point of the bend. He was right there along with the other six horses in the wall across the line and motored on for the last bit.

He was back at Pride’s Warwick Farm stable on Sunday morning, and appeared to have come through the tough race really well.

“He has come through the run great and at this stage I’d say he’ll be going back for the Darley Classic,” Pride said.

The 2014 Darley Classic looks to be an intriguing rematch of the Manikato, with the entire field nominated for the Flemington race including winner Lankan Rupee. However, it is unlikely all of the 12 runners will back-up. It’s already been revealed that Buffering did not come through the match well, and may not run.

Angelic Light, Famous Seamus, Buffering, Temple Of Boom, and Terravista all received their fair share of interference. While a lengthy protest declared Lankan Rupee was not directly responsible, connections will undoubtedly be looking for their revenge.

Terravista is on the fourth line of betting in the 2014 Darley Classic odds at Ladbrokes.com.au, currently a $11 chance to take out the race.

Chautauqua, who impressively won the Group 2 Gilgai Stakes (1200m) on October 4 with a massive four length lead, is favourite at $2.70 following by Lankan Rupee ($5) and British sprint star Slade Power ($5.50).
