2015 Melbourne Cup Aim for Who Shot Thebarman

After returning from his trip to Royal Ascot with star colt Brazen Beau, Sydney’s premier horseman Chris Waller is laying out the spring plans for his stars back home including Melbourne Cup 2015-bound Who Shot Thebarman.

Like his trainer the six-year-old Yamanin Vital gelding is a Kiwi expat, Who Shot Thebarman boasting eight wins from 20 starts with over $1.3 million in prize money to date.

Winner of the Group 1 Auckland Cup (3200m) over the two miles at Ellerslie in his final run in New Zealand in March of 2014, the genuine stayer debuted down under in the Group 1 Sydney Cup over the same distance at Royal Randwick that April.

He could only manage to finish ninth behind The Offer however when beaten over 12 lengths and was quickly put away until the spring.

He came back in August and by September was in winning form at Flemington with back-to-back victories over 2000m and then 2520m in the Group 3 The Bart Cummings.

A 13th behind the ill-fated Japanese raider Admire Rakti in the lucrative $3 million Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) followed and Waller put him back in the paddock with the Melbourne Cup taken off the table.

The world’s richest handicap, the $6.2 million Group 1 Emirates Melbourne Cup (3200m) on the first Tuesday of November at Flemington Racecourse however is on the horse’s agenda this spring.

Who Shot Thebarman raced competitively earlier this year during the autumn in Sydney including a fourth behind Hartnell, current co-favourite in the early Caulfield Cup odds at Ladbrokes.com.au this year with Australian Derby winner Mongolian Khan, in the Group 1 The BMW (2400m) at Rosehill.

His latest run was then a second shot at the Sydney Cup and this time he improved to finish a devastatingly close nose off stablemate Grand Marshal, who Waller also has heading towards the Melbourne Cup this November along with both Who Shot Thebarman and his Victorian Derby winning Zabeel colt Preferment.

“He’s just come back into the stable and is being set for another shot at the Cup,” Waller told The Daily Telegraph this week.

“At this stage we’ve got him, Preferment and Grand Marshal, who just tipped out Who Shot Thebarman to win the Sydney Cup, all heading towards the Melbourne Cup.

“There’s a few other horses that we’ve got that could end up in the Melbourne Cup but they need to win races to get in.

“It’s nice having three horses already there and we can now plan their preparations.”

With Waller confirming the Melbourne Cup ambitions of Who Shot Thebarman this Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival, the galloper currently pays $26 to win the ‘race that stops a nation’ in all-in markets led by Japan’s Fame Game.

Sydney Cup winning Dansili gelding Grand Marshal is at the same quote in the ante-post Melbourne Cup odds while Preferment is at a longer $41 after the youngster’s disappointing eighth in the Group 1 Australian Derby (2400m) last start.
