2015 Australian Guineas Option for Admiral

After an impressive win in the Tasmanian Guineas on Sunday, Spretyon trainer Barry Campbell is weighing up the option of sending Admiral to Melbourne this autumn for a shot at the Australian Guineas 2015.

The three-year-old son of Mossman jumped the odds-on $1.50 favourite in the $100,000 Kevin Sharkie Tasmanian Guineas (1600m) at Hobart Racecourse during the Tasmanian Summer Racing Carnival on the weekend and saluted for the punters.

Jockey Brendon McCoull took the up-and-coming youngster up on the speed from his barrier six of 10 draw to sit second on the outside of the leader, stablemate Calavera who eventually crossed five lengths away in fifth.

He stayed in that position until the home turn before striding clear to fly home for an easy three length victory over the Stuart Gandy-trained filly Geegees Goldengirl ($9.40) with Scott Brunton’s Haradasun gelding Follow My Dust ($12.40) in third a further one and a quarter lengths away.

Now boasting eight wins, a second and a third from 10 career starts, Admiral has amassed close to $285,000 in prize money.

The blinkers came off for the first time one run before the Tasmanian Guineas when he put four and a half lengths on his closest rival over 1400m at Launceston.

He is also now a triple stakes winner having won the Listed Elwick Stakes (1100m) after an awkward jump at Hobart back in February last year and the Listed Gold Sovereign Stakes (1200m) at Launceston a fortnight after that as a two-year-old.

There are a few options of where to next for Admiral who will either stay on in the Apple Isle or head north to Melbourne for a Group 1 autumn assignment.

At home he could run in the $100,000 Listed Hobart Guineas (2100m) on January 25 that could lead into the $100,000 Listed Tasmanian Derby (2200m) back at the track on February 6, or go into weight-for-age company on February 9 in the $100,000 Listed Thomas Lyons Stakes (1400m).

If not, he will be saved for a tougher interstate test targeting the lucrative $500,000 Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) over less distance at Flemington Racecourse on March 7 during the Melbourne Festival of Racing.

“We’ve got a couple of options but which way we go will be determined after we see how the horse has come through this race,” Campbell told Tasracing.

“We will either go to the Hobart Guineas to see whether he will get the Derby trip or we freshen him up and head to the weight-for-age Thomas Lyons on Hobart Cup Day.

“We also have to consider taking him to Melbourne for the Australian Guineas in March but whatever we do it will be what is best for the horse.”
