Seaburge to back up in 2016 Ladbrokes Caulfield Classic

Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas runner up Seaburge is set to back up in the Group 3 $500,000 Ladbrokes Caulfield Classic (2000m) at Caulfield on Saturday.

Lindsay Park co-trainer David Hayes indicated that if Seaburge pulled up okay after being beaten a nose by Divine Prophet in the Group 1 $1m Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield  last Saturday, he would take his place in the Ladbrokes Classic this weekend,

“I think he will. If I am happy with him at the end of the week he will certainly back up and then two weeks into the Derby or maybe three weeks into the Mackinnon (Emirates Stakes),” Hayes said on racing.com’s Spring Insiders.

The Group 1 $1.5m AAMI Victoria Derby (2500m) for the three year olds is run at Flemington on October 29, the first day of the four day Melbourne Cup Carnival while the Mackinnon Stakes, now known as the Group 1 $2m Emirates Stakes (2000m), is run under weight for age conditions and has been moved to the last day of  the Flemington carnival a week later.

Even though Seaburge started at the long odds $31, Hayes said the stable was confident that the Sebring colt would run a bold race in the Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas

“We really fancied him. We thought he would run well,” said Hayes who trains in partnership with his son Ben and nephew Tom Dabernig.

“My horse peaked on the day, ran a career best and he is heading towards the good three year old races in the next couple of weeks.”

“In the prelude because he is looking for further and he actually went to win and just peaked on the run and I think with that run under his belt and a bit of work last week, it was really good.”

Seaburge showed plenty of potential in his two year old year with a win in the Group 2 $200,000 MSS Security Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) at Flemington on March 12, and this campaign he showed two starts back that he was ready to mix it with the best three year olds with a three quarters of a length fourth to Sacred Elixir in the Group 3 $175,000 Ladbrokes Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m) at Caulfield on September 24.

The Lindsay Park Team was a nose away from training five winners on the Caulfield Guineas Day ten race program and if Seaburge could have got the judge’s decision in the tight photo finish, he would have added to their other four winners of He’s Our Rokkii in the Group 1 $500,000 Toorak Handicap (1600m), Wait For No One in the Listed $120,000 Debutant Stakes (1000m), Hear The Chant in the Group 3 $150,000 Thoroughbred Club Stakes (1200m) and Sheidel in the Group 3 $150,000 Cape Grim Beef Steaks (1200m).
