Doncaster Mile & Stradbroke Handicap For Sincero 2012

Sincero was the boom horse of the Brisbane winter carnival coming in off a hot streak, failing his first test and then coming back to win the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap.

From there he started off with some success down south but it’s fair to say his Melbourne campaign fell short of expectations.

He was pushed up in distance by trainer Steve Farley and while he got as far as the Cox Plate his results over the extended trip where moderate at best.

Farley says it’s not just the horse that will learn a few things from the experience though, he’ll be better for it as well.

“It was a hard learning for him and myself,” Farley said.

” It was the first time I had a horse that good going to Melbourne.”

He says the horse won’t just be taking mental improvement  either as he looks physically stronger after a spell.

“He’s come through that (Melbourne) fine and looks in fantastic order,” he said.

“He’s thickened up through the neck and looks a lot more mature.

“He looks fantastic at the moment and he looks like a lovely horse now, pretty happy with the way he is.”

Sincero is still a while off making a return to the track though with his debut scheduled for later in the autumn.

“At this stage he’ll trial in early march and he’ll probably kick off in the Canterbury Stakes over 1300m at Rosehill 24th,” he said.

One of his main aims will be the George Ryder Stakes on Golden Slipper Day but he’s also among the 197 nominations for the 2012 Doncaster Mile.

Depending on how well he’s going Farley would also love to have him going long enough for a Stradbroke Handicap defence as well.

“Hopefully we can get there to try and defend his crown,” he said.
