Australian Guineas for San Nicasio Following 2015 Autumn Stakes Win

Three-year-old gelding San Nicasio won the Group 2 Autumn Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday, and will now be aimed towards the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) on March 7.

David Hayes & Tom Dabernig’s Hong Kong Captain jumped very well from barrier one and was getting a good run in fourth on the inside.

Through the first couple of hundred metres, San Nicasio took up the running while Zebulon worked up to sit outside the leader.

Race favourite Profit Share ($3.90) was third last for the majority of the race, in a rather average run.

San Nicasio ($10) led one length and a half down the straight ahead of Zebulon ($14) with Hong Kong Captain on their heels. However Firehouse Rock ($18) worked his way up the field at the right time to slip into third.

Trainer Peter Moody was pleased with the result from San Nicasio who was last seen finishing fourth in the Group 3 Manfred Stakes (1300m) at Sandown.

“He’s a horse with nice ability that’s still learning his trade,” he said.

“We would have been happy to take a sit but it didn’t present that way. He jumped to the front and it was 10/10.

“He’s always showing his good ability, he’s got a lot a lot of nice races coming up but there is a question mark about whether he’ll be mature enough as a three-year-old.

“He’s in the Guineas but he’s got to show me he has the ability to run a mile.”

Ben Melham took his time working across with the winning gelding, not rushing him all. For the first half of the race it was run at a moderate tempo before picking up the speed to lead. It was a clever run from the hoop that undeniably won the race.

“I was too scared to take a sit on him today, but I just let him roll out of the barrier and he came back under me nice,” the hoop said.

“Relaxed really well for me up front and good sectionals and really hit home well.

“If things go his way he’ll run a mile no worries.”
