Module Headed For Spring Carnival After Flemington Win

After winning the Baden Baden Trophy at Flemington on Saturday, Peter Gelagotis has confirmed that Module will be given a freshen up and aimed at the Melbourne spring carnival.

The five year old gelding stepped up to 2000m for the first time on the weekend, beating home a quality field that included the likes of Light Vision, Right Fong and Conquering Journey.

“I said after the last start that I thought there was a bit left,” said Manny Gelagotis, who represents his brother’s stable.

“He had a beautiful run and it was a great ride. He’s a horse that makes his own luck. He’s holding himself together well and he’s delivering the promise he’s always shown.”

Module has previously been trained by John Sadler and Robert Hickmott, but since crossing to the Gelagotis team he has won three races from as many starts.

He adds the Baden Baden win to his victories in a benchmark 94 race at Morphetville and a benchmark 95 at Flemington since joining the Gelagotis team.

“I don’t think we’ve really improved him – in the sense that he’s doing something that he hasn’t done before,” Gelagotis said.

“We’re getting more runs out of him, and we’re looking after him. He’s got a few niggles, but he’s a very happy horse. He’s letting go and he’s got some class.

Gelagotis confirmed that Module would be nominated for the major cups in the spring, but he also said that he was not sure which races he would target on the way.

“We’re not sure where he’ll end up. But he’s shown us he will stay and he will be given his chance in some races down in the weights,” he said.

“We’ll wait and see how he pulls up. We might give him a little freshen up for a fortnight and then look for something nicer for him.”

Following his win on Saturday, jockey Damien Oliver said Module was a ‘genuine listed or Group Three horse’.
