Robl Trio Target 2015 BJ McLachlan Plate

Recently licenced Peter Robl is gearing up for his first trip to the races as a trainer and not a jockey this Boxing Day at the Gold Coast Racecourse with a trio of top hopes targeting the BJ McLachlan Plate 2015.

The retired Group 1 winning hoop has 18 horses in work and was granted his trainer’s licence by the Australian Turf Club (ATC) on Thursday.

He hopes to be represented in his first meeting in Queensland on December 26 where racing is headlined by the $150,000 Group 1 BJ McLachlan Plate (1200m).

Having worked as an assistant trainer to David Vandyke and John Sargent in Sydney and will prepare his own change of horses, the majority of which are owned by Segenhoe Thoroughbreds, from a stable at Randwick.

“Having Segenhoe’s support gives me a great base to work with,” Robl told Racenet this week.

“There are a few outside horses there too and I am willing to look at training more outside horses if the opportunity arises.”

A race fall at Scone back in January of 2014 spurred Robl’s early retirement from the saddle after the Group 1 winning jockey suffered career ending spinal injuries.

He is hoping for early luck in the Group racing scene this summer naming three BJ McLachlan hopes that are currently prepared by Sargent.

“Aussies Love Sport, Eloping and Sugarparma could all go round,” Robl confirmed.

Redoute’s Choice five-year-old Aussies Love Sport raced last Saturday at Randwick and finished a brave second in a terrific first-up run behind Cradle Me in the Listed Razor Sharp Handicap (1200m).

Ninth in the same race and also transferring from Sargent to Robl ahead of the Boxing Day races was Eloping, the four-year-old daughter of Choisir looking to return to her strong form as a two and three-year-old that included multiple Group wins and credible Group 1 performances.

The youngest of the bunch is Snitzel two-year-old Sugarparma, a $120,000 buy for Segenhoe Thoroughbreds from this year’s Gold Coast Magic Millions Yearling Sale.

She debuted at the Gold Coast over 900m last Saturday and caught the eye first-up with a nice half-length win over Hidden Light the filly will be out to repeat next start.

Robl is also preparing for a return to the Gold Coast track on January 9 for the lucrative $10 million Magic Millions Race Day where Sugarparma could target the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m).

Aussies Love Sport and Eloping are also a Magic Millions graduates and possible targets should they head that way include the $1 million Magic Millions Cup (1400m) or the $250,000 Magic Millions Country Cup (1200m).

Robl’s name will also appear beside 2016 Magic Millions Cup hope Centre Pivot next month who races under Sargent this Saturday in Brisbane’s $175,000 Listed Treasury Casino & Hotel Bernborough Handicap (1615m) at Doomben Racecourse.

The More Than Ready five-year-old is a $9 hope in betting at, home of Best Tote or SP + 20% on the feature Brisbane race on Saturday, with markets led by local Queenslanders Hopfgarten and Traveston Girl.
