Reparations to Run in Standish Handicap 2015

Hall of Fame trainer Lee Freedman has named the 2015 Standish Handicap on New Year’s Day in Melbourne as the likely next-up summer assignment for the Godolphin-owned Reparations.

The Exceed And Excel six-year-old resumed off a five month spell at Flemington on Melbourne Cup Day in early November.

There he enjoyed a one and a quarter length victory over Office Bearer scoring an upset as a 30-1 outsider in the Listed MSS Security Sprint (1200m).

He could now return to the track and distance on January 1 when back up to Group company for a shot at the $200,000 Group 3 Standish Handicap (1200m), a race Freedman expects him to perform well in on fresh legs.

“He’s had a break and will have a trial leading up to the race and will go into the race fresh like he did during Cup week,” he told Racing Victoria.

Reparations was tested in Group 1 class during the winter in Brisbane when racing in Queensland’s richest race, the $1.3 million Stradbroke Handicap (1400m).

He was disappointing however in that June 7 clash running 15th behind River Lad on the back of some nice Melbourne and Sydney lead-up form including a Listed Thoroughbred Club Cup (1440m) win at Caulfield in May.

The MSS Security Sprint was just his second run at Flemington Racecourse and atoned for his failed effort there when a distant 14th of 15 runners behind Tuscan Fire over 1410m in August last year.

This year’s Standish Handicap winner Flamberge who went on to contest the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) and the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1220m), crossing fifth in both races behind the world’s highest rated sprinter Lankan Rupee, during the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival.

If Reparations measures up in the Standish then Freedman could also look to follow this path during the autumn with the progressive sprinter.
