Brisbane Features Remain the Target for Big Money

Trainer Rod Northam was understandably thrilled with the results posted by talented gelding Big Money over his most recent campaign and has revealed the five-year-old has returned to work at his Scone stables this week.

Securing an impressive record of nine wins and four minor places from just 15 competitive appearances so far, Big Money has not been seen at the races since taking out the Listed Lough Neagh Stakes (1350m) at Doomben on December 20th, having hit the line close to two lengths in the clear of Someday in the Group 3 George Moore Stakes (1200m) a fortnight prior.

Thrilled with the way the son of Choisir has taken to his time away from racing, Northam told The Daily Telegraph he is not sure if Big Money will contest any races during the Sydney Autumn Carnival, confirming the Group 1 sprints over the Brisbane winter remain his focus.

“He has been in my front paddock so I have seen him every day and he looks great,” Northam said.

“I’m not sure if there is a suitable race for him in Sydney during the autumn but ultimately I hope to have him ready for the BTC Cup (1200m), Doomben 10,000 (1350m) and Stradbroke Handicap (1350m).”

Debuting to racing over the winter of 2013, Big Money arguably announced his arrival through the summer of the same year, highlighted by two wins in minor sprints and a close second to Target In Sight in the Ascend Sales Trophies NMW (1200m) at Randwick on Boxing Day.

Taking out each of the Arrowfield Autumn Sprint (1000m) and Segenhoe Stud BM75 (1100m) upon returned in 2014, the gelding out of Lyn’s Money placed second to classy local Cape Kidnappers in the Listed Lightning Handicap (1000m) at Eagle Farm on June 7th before securing back-to-back victories in the Group 3 W.J. Healy Stakes (1200m) and Listed Ramornie Handicap (1200m).

Placing an impressive fourth in the Group 2 Caulfield Sprint (1100m) before a luckless run for ninth in the Group 2 Salinger Stakes (1200m) in what was his only other start prior to the George Moore Stakes; Northam is yet to settle on a first point of call for Big Money in 2015.
