The White Hope Chance for Stradbroke Handicap 2013

A Magic Millions Cup campaign may have been taken off the agenda for The White Hope but Matthew Dunn’s Murwillumbah-based galloper could be set for bigger things with the 2013 Stradbroke Handicap during next year’s Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival a genuine option.

The White Hope could be 2013 Stradbroke Handicap-bound

A winter of four of their five starts to date since debuting at Eagle Farm in March this year, Bradbury’s Luck four-year-old The White Hope enjoyed a strong spring campaign with three big wins on the trot which had connections talking Magic Millions Day on the Gold Coast next month.

The prestigious $400,000 Magic Millions Cup (1400m) was on the cards for the promising grey who was last seen stepping up to 1400m for the first time on November 24 to win by one and three quarter lengths at Eagle Farm.

Taking out the race in a sharp 1:21.57, The White Hope didn’t pull up quite as well from that run as Dunn would have hoped.

“He hasn’t fallen apart completely or anything like that but he’s a little bit different to what he was going into his last few runs and I’d hate to take him to the races and have him race poorly,” Dunn said.

“The way he is now we’d run that risk because he felt his last run quite a bit. The spark just isn’t there.”

Instead of pressing on through the summer however The White Hope will instead be sent out for a spell with Dunn keen on giving them a testing autumn – winter campaign that could include a shot at Queensland’s richest race, the $1 million Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) at Eagle Farm on June 8, 2013.
