2015 Randwick Guineas Aim for Shooting To Win

Co-trainer Peter Snowden has named the Randwick Guineas 2015 as the major autumn aim for his Caulfield Guineas champ Shooting To Win.

Snowden plans to travel the traditional Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival path with the Northern Meteor colt into the $600,000 Group 1 Randwick Guineas (1600m) on Saturday March 7.

A return in mid-February is likely before Shooting To Win, who has been back in work for three weeks, runs in the $200,000 Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) held at Rosehill Guineas a fortnight before the Randwick Guineas.

“He will come back and run in the Royal Sovereign (sic), Hobartville and the Randwick Guineas, then we’ll assess where he’s at,” Snowden told Racing Network on Monday.

This year the Peter Moody-trained Dissident, now a triple Group 1 champion thanks to spring wins in the Memsie Stakes and Makybe Diva Stakes in Melbourne, completed the Hobartville Stakes – Randwick Guineas double in Sydney.

He also ran sixth in the Rosehill Guineas up over 2000m and was outclassed when dropped back down to 1600m in the mud for a shot at one of the autumn’s premier races – the $3 million Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m).

Next year Snowden, who trains in partnership with his son Paul, is also looking at the 2015 Doncaster Mile at Randwick in April as a possible aim for their star autumn colt.

“What it comes down to is whether he’s good enough – it’s as simple as that,” he said.

“I don’t think we’ll stretch him past a mile this autumn.”

Snowden also said Shooting To Win had come back in top form and similar physical condition, the trainer crediting his maturity to an early spell.

“He was already a magnificent-looking horse and very mature for his age,” Snowden said.

“He hasn’t grown a lot but he’s put on some condition.

“He went straight to the paddock after winning the Guineas, which is early, and that’s turned out to be a blessing.”

Shooting To Win has won four of his seven career starts to date, the $160,000 yearling having amassed over $900,000 in prize money thanks mainly to his win in the $1 million Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) last time out on October 11 in his Victorian race debut.

That followed a strong spring campaign in Sydney that included a fast finishing third behind Hallowed Crown in the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) in mid-September and a big three length win when too good for Scissor Kick in the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m) back at Rosehill two weeks later.
