Kiwi Saracino on Caulfield Guineas 2016 Raid

Cambridge horseman and co-trainer Andrew Forsman confirmed the stable’s promising young colt Saracino could be Melbourne bound for a 2016 Caulfield Cup bid down under this spring.

The progressive son of Per Incanto is prepared by Forsman and Murray Baker in New Zealand, but is doing lots right at home ahead of a possible trip to Australia for a shot at the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival riches.

He has had three runs to date and remains a maiden but has finished in the money in all of his starts in Group class so far.

On debut Saracino ran second in the Group 3 Phoenix Park 2YO Classic (1200m) in February before a fifth to Heroci Valour in the Group 1 Diamond Stakes (1200m) at Ellerslie in March and his last start third when defeated under a length in a blanket finish behind stablemate Luna Rossa in the Group 1 Sires’ Produce (1400m) at Awapuni in early April.

Forsman’s training partner Baker is no stranger to Group 1 racing and winning in Victoria including his success in last year’s Caulfield Cup with the since-retired Mongolian Khan.

He also won the 2010 Victoria Derby with the ill-fated Lion Tamer.

Forsman said that Saracino had a long way to go before reaching those kinds of heights, but that his promising form as a juvenile had earned him at least a nomination for races like the $1 million Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) on October 8.

“He holds nominations in Melbourne and races like the Caulfield Guineas roll around quite quickly,” Forsman told Stuff NZ.

“He’ll probably go over at the end of the month and we have given consideration to a run in the Foxbridge Plate first or the other options are at Hawke’s Bay or Ruakaka.”

The 2016 Caulfield Guineas nominations closed on Tuesday morning attracting a bumper 329 three-year-olds along with those for a host of the spring’s best races including the Caulfield Cup and Cox Plate.
