2016 Winter Stakes Back-Up for Shadow Lord

Warwick Farm horseman Joe Pride is happy to put his progressive galloper Shadow Lord on the seven day turnaround and step him up in class for a shot at the Winter Stakes 2016 this Saturday in Sydney.

The Dane Shadow four-year-old is one of 10 final acceptors for the $150,000 Listed Winter Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse on the weekend.

He gets in on the 54kg minimum, a notable drop back in weight from the hefty 60.5kg he carted around the Randwick track on a Heavy (9) on July 9.

In that Benchmark 83 over 1200m last Saturday, Shadow Lord was far from disgraced crossing fourth to the winner Burning Passion with Jay Ford in the saddle.

Ford retains the ride this weekend as Shadow Lord on the quick back-up looks to improve under the lighter kilos and enjoy his second win from four starts.

He won over 1200m at Randwick on June 11 defeating Burning Passion with 59.5kg on his back, Ford also in the saddle that run, before a third with Deanne Panya aboard for an apprentice claim behind Mount Nebo in the Winter Dash (1200m).

A winner of two of his seven starts over Saturday’s distance, Shadow Lord is a double-figure hope at $14 in the latest Winter Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au.

“I’ve got no concerns about him running two weeks in a row,” Pride told AAP.

“He’s a good back-up horse.”

It is a wide open Winter Stakes betting market this season with six of his rivals under $10 for the win including current $4.50 co-favourites Ninth Legion and Better Not Blue who ran one-two in the Listed Civic Stakes (1350m) quinella at the track a fortnight back.

The Peter Robl-trained Ninth Legion, who also won Queensland’s Listed Eye Liner Stakes (1350m) the start before, goes up a kilo to 60kg on Saturday while Better Not Blue remains a 54kg lightweight for the rematch.

The other best fancied runner for the Winter Stakes success this season at $6 and firming is the Kim Waugh-trained Oxford Poet, the Wyong galloper shooting for his maiden stakes win.

He is another 54kg chance jumping from a gun barrier three draw with jockey Tim Clark in the saddle of the Dylan Thomas five-year-old who was third in the Listed June Stakes (1100m) at Randwick two back before a last start fifth only 1.4 lengths off Ninth Legion in the Civic Stakes on July 2.
