Eurell Has Big Autumn Plans for We’ve Got This

Three-year-old We’ve Got This has only had one career start to date but trainer Greg Eurell already has big plans for the gelding come autumn.

After winning two barrier trials, Eurell took We’ve Got This to Cranbourne on October for the Equine Direct 3YO Plate Maiden (1200m), which the gelding won in a narrow but strong victory. He settled third on the rails before getting a split between runners to take the lead at the 100 metre mark. He then fought back well to win in a photo finish despite racing a little greenly.

“This is a really nice, scopy horse who might go a bit further than your average horse,” Eurell told Racing Network on Monday.

We’ve Got This is due to run in the $100,000 VOBIS Gold Eureka Stockade (1400m) at Ballarat on Saturday but Eurell is already eyeing bigger and better future prospects during the autumn for his one start, one win three-year-old.

“”Win, lose or draw on Saturday he’ll go for a little break, then we’ll get him back for the autumn,” he said.

“I still have to sit down and map out what’s the best for him, look at the races in Sydney and the races in Melbourne and work out which are the best for him,” he added.

“Like I say, he’s got a lot of scope and I think he’ll run a mile (1600m),” he said.

The 2014 Gold Eureka Stockade is one of ten races running at Ballarat this Saturday during the huge stand-alone meeting, which will carry more than $1 million in prize money. The Stockade is for VOBIS-eligible horses only and will carry $100,000, which when divided includes $60,000 for the winner and a $23,000 Super VOBIS bonus.

We’ve Got You will have to beat home the likes of Quest Moonee Valley Handicap runner-up Devon Princess, Group 3 Red Anchor Stakes (1200m) fourth Shaf, and Mitchelton Wines Handicap (1209m) winner Profit Share.

Eurell pointed out that both Northroza and Sang Choi Bao, who finished second and third to We’ve Got This in his maiden win, have gone on to win their own maidens, which helps his own gelding’s form.

“It’s always good to see the form around your horse stand up, and it really has with him,” he said.
