Master Agar Possible 2015 Australian Derby Contender

Ron Quinton already has big plans for three-year-old gelding Master Agar after he won his debut at Warwick Farm on Wednesday.

The trainer has suggested a possible Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m) path for the gelding in the autumn, although he admits there’s a long way to go before then.

“I’d look to nominate him for the Derby, there is a lot of water to go under the bridge but he gives the impression that he should stay,” Quinton told TVN.

With prize money totaling $2 million, the 2015 Australian Derby will be a contentious and sought after race for many top stayers. The race is one of four Group Ones running at Royal Randwick Racecourse on April 4.

Master Agar was an $8 chance at to win the Hyland Race Colours Handicap (1600m) at Warwick Farm this afternoon. It was the gelding’s third start and first win after he finishing outside the placings in two maiden races in the past five weeks.

The gelding seemed to relish the step up to the mile and even suggested he’d improve with more ground. He recorded his first win in a tight photo finish with runner-up Kranji ($7.50) while $3.30 favourite Nazir finished one and a half lengths behind the pair in third.

Quinton was pleased with the victory, believing Master Agar is beginning to work out his craft.

“He was quite an expensive yearling, he cost $240,000 and being by Not A Single Doubt we thought he might show something early,” Quinton said.

“But he has gone completely the other way and thrown to the dam side with his mother being by Zabeel.

“His connections have been patient and allowed me to take my time with him.

“He has been in and out of the stables a few times but this is his first real preparation.

“He is a big raw horse and I think he will keep getting better as the races get longer.”

Australian Derby futures odds are live at now with Group 1 Victoria Derby (2500m) winner Preferment the $5 favourite.
