Caulfield Guineas 2015 Target for Green Card

Co-trainers Peter Morgan & Craig Widdison are talking early 2015 Caulfield Guineas talks for promising young gelding Green Card after the juvenile posted an impressive Melbourne win last Saturday.

After breaking his maiden status three runs in at Bendigo over 1100m with a nice four and a quarter length victory on May 11, All American two-year-old Green Card had his Caulfield debut last weekend in the $80,000 MRC Ted Rainford Plate (1100m).

He handled the step up to Saturday metropolitan racing with ease, thriving over the 1100m again with Linda Meech aboard for a four length success over Magna Rossa.

Meech took Green Card to the front with 300m left to go after he had settled third on the outside of Northkape and Magna Rossa, the eventual winner racing away over the closing stages to win in a smart 1:04.51.

It was an impressive effort and one connections hope the youngster can continue to build on as he eyes a Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival campaign.

“We’ve got a bit of an opinion of him, so he’ll probably have a little freshen up now and target something in the Spring,” co-trainer Widdison said of the Bruce & Jill Mathieson owned and bred horse.

While only tested over 1100m to date, the horse’s trainers are hoping he shows the same ability over more distance as they eye a run for Green Card in the $1 million Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) on October 10.

“We always thought he’d probably get out to 1400 or a mile, but we’ll let him tell us,” Widdison added.

“He’ll be nominated for the Guineas and we’ll just see if he measures up to it.”

Before the Guineas, Green Card is likely to be tested in elite level company earlier in the $1 million Group 1 ATC Golden Rose (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens in Sydney on September 12.

After his freshen-up Widdison said they were eyeing a race like the Group 3 HDF McNeil Stakes (1200m) on Memsie Stakes Day at Caulfield on August 29 as a possible first-up option.

“He’s pretty bombproof and does everything right,” he said.

“You have got to pull yourself up sometimes and realise that he’s only a two-year-old. He does everything like an older horse.”

Green Card’s sire All American’s 2014/15 Australian record is now up to 20 winners, 36 wins and $1.1 million in prize money thanks to the recent success of Green Card, the Gai Waterhouse-trained Eisenhower, All Aussie & Ramla Bay.
