2017 Bletchingly Stakes Next for Monash Winner Supido

After breaking through for a maiden black-type win, the Michael Kent-trained sprinter Supido will race next-up in the Bletchingly Stakes 2017 before plotting a path towards a Group 1 race in the spring.

The rising six-year-old son of Sebring lined-up at Caulfield Racecourse on the weekend as the odds-on favourite in the $150,000 Group 3 Sir John Monash Stakes (1100m) and didn’t disappoint the punters.

Having his first start since a failed 13th behind Russian Revolution in the mud at Rosehill on March 18 in the Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m), Supido flew fresh and added to his imposing first-up record that now reads five wins and a second from five starts.

Group 1 placed in The Goodwood (1200m) behind Black Heart Bart (1st) and Under The Louvre (2nd) in May last year, Supido was ridden to victory in the Monash Stakes by Luke Nolen of Black Caviar fame.

After making up all the ground from the back of the field, on the line the top fancy had three-quarters of a length to spare over the Adelaide-trained runner-up Daytona Grey ($21) from the Morphettville stables of Leon Macdonald & Andrew Gluyas.

In a close third just over a length off the winner rounding out the Monash Stakes trifecta was then the Brendan McCarthy-trained Murt The Flirt.

The result was an important one for Supido who now has a stakes win on the record as he heads towards another Caulfield start on July 29 in the $150,000 Group 3 Bletchingly Stakes (1200m).

He’s got a really good turn of foot,” Kent told AAP on Saturday.

“I said to Luke, ‘Don’t panic. Just be patient and try to give him some clear air’.

“It’s good to get that win out of the way because it’s his first stakes win. He’s been Group 1 and Group 2 placed and I was dying to get him a stakes win.

“He’s come back really well this time. It’s the happiest I’ve been with him for a while.”

Kent’s long term spring aim is to get Supido back up into elite level company, rating the improver a definite Group 1 horse in the making.

“I think he’s a Group 1 horse,” Kent said.

“He’s had a few issues. He gets sore feet and hard ground niggles him a bit.

“Then he went to Sydney in the autumn and got really heavy ground and didn’t handle that.

“But he’s had a nice break and has come back really well.”
