Wet Suits Endless Days in 2016 Wintergarden Stakes

Co-trainer Peter Hulbert is hoping the showers in Brisbane stick around ahead of Saturday’s Tattersall’s Tiara Day at Eagle Farm with the soft track to suit his young Wintergarden Stakes 2016 hopeful Endless Days.

There are 15 juveniles facing off in this year’s $100,000 Listed Wintergarden Tattersall’s Stakes (1400m) and the Peter & William Hulbert-trained Endless Days has a tough test to handle from a wide gate 13 draw.

Brad Stewart rides the son of Dane Shadow once more having been aboard for the gelding’s two latest starts.

The first saw him outclassed at Doomben on May 14 when last home, beaten over eight lengths by Winning Rupert in the Group 2 Champagne Stakes (1200m) as a $71 roughie.

He dropped right back to a Class 1 race at the Gold Coast for his next run a fortnight ago on June 11 and from the outside alley (14 of 14), Endless Days enjoyed a confidence boosting win.

It was his first since success over 1050m in Brisbane in March and the second from his seven start career to date.

This weekend Hulbert hopes the youngster can handle the step back up to Black-Type in the Wintergarden Stakes, and said the current Soft (6) track rating aided his cause.

“He will have to be at his best from barrier 13 on Saturday, but the sting should be out of the track and it might be an advantage to be away from the fence,” Hulbert, who chases his first stakes success since partnering with his son William, told AAP.

From three runs on Soft going Endless Days boasts one win and a second and he currently pays $16 in the Wintergarden Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Markets are led by the Stuart Kendrick-trained maiden Charnley River ($3.60) coming off a second to Sacred Elixir in the Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) from Stradbroke Day.

Hulbert has prepared Endless Days’ dam Endless Maize’s previous progeny for plenty of wins and said that their typical racing style was to settle back off a good speed and fly home late.

“Almost all of them throw their heads around in races if there is no pace on,” he said.

“Endless Days is no different but when he settles he can finish very hard.

“You saw that when he came from last to win at Doomben earlier this year and he came from third last to win at the Gold Coast.

“He just needs pace in his races and he can settle and run home well.”
