Flying Artie Back for 2016 Coolmore Stud Stakes Bid

Mick Price’s Golden Slipper placegetter Flying Artie has made a quicker than expected recovery from injury and is doing everything right for a Coolmore Stud Stakes 2016 bid this spring.

Originally the Caulfield-based Price believed a sesamoid injury would prevent the stable’s smart Artie Schiller colt from racing again until the autumn next year.

Flying Artie has bounced back however since hurting himself after a third to Capitalist in the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) on March 19 at Rosehill and is set to return to racing this Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

“The little lesion in between the sesamoid and the cannon bone, which I was concerned about, according to (the vets), don’t worry about it, it shouldn’t cause him any bother,” Price told Racing Ahead on RSN Friday morning.

“The main problem was an immature inside sesamoid on one joint and they’ve given him the all-clear.

“We’ll tread wearily but I think he’s back in action.”

The rising three-year-old is yet to finish worse than third in his four career runs as a juvenile that also included a Group 3 win in the Blue Diamond Prelude and second to his stablemate Extreme Choice in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) in late February.

Price is eyeing another Group 1 sprint against his own age this time down the Flemington straight in the $500,000 Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) on Victoria Derby Day, October 29.

He will gear up the work of Flying Artie, who has spent four months in the paddock, from today Price said while confirming his spring plans.

“Flying Artie is going into trot and canter work today,” he said.

“If he had a good 10 weeks, he could have a run and then maybe end up in the Coolmore as well.”

From seven previous Coolmore Stud Stakes runners Price has prepared a runner-up and third-placegetter but is yet to take out the classic three-years-old sprint.

Price’s Blue Diamond Stakes winner Extreme Choice meanwhile is scheduled for a first-up run on September 30 at Moonee Valley Racecourse against the older horses in the $500,000 Group 1 Moir Stakes (1000m).

The galloper could also then target the Coolmore Stud Stakes coming up against his stablemate on the opening day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival.
