Property Eyes The Galaxy 2018 Return

Caulfield horseman Henry Dwyer is looking at a Golden Slipper Stakes Day race in Sydney next month for the autumn return of Property who could be aimed at the 2018 The Galaxy at Rosehill Gardens.

Formerly prepared by Robert Smerdon, Starcraft gelding Property was one of last season’s gun juveniles winning the Blue Diamond Preview – Prelude double before a fifth to Catchy in the Group 1 $1.5 million Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) exactly 12 months ago.

He backed-up to post a third career win in the Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes (1100m) at Randwick in his Sydney debut before coming back in the spring for two unplaced Melbourne runs.

First-up he was fourth to the speedy Snitty Kitty in the Group 2 Caulfield Sprint (1000m) before a midfield sixth in a three-years-old sprint down the Flemington straight on Melbourne Cup Day with soundness issues affecting his campaign.

Unraced since, Property is now under the care of Dwyer who believes the key to unlocking the three-year-old’s return to form will be finding suitable soft tracks.

Property geared up for his much awaited return at the Cranbourne trials on Monday and looked to have matured size-wise since his time off when seventh over 800m in the seventh heat of the morning.

“He came here today to have a spin around. Mark [Zahra] rode him and gave him a little slap-up into the straight and let him cruise the last 200 [metres],” Dwyer told Racing Victoria on Monday.

“He’s still big and fat but he’s obviously clean-winded as he pulled up better in the wind than I thought he would.”

Dwyer is now looking at heading to Sydney where Property will enjoy a bit of give in the ground and a race like the Group 1 $700,000 The Galaxy (1100m) shapes-up as a nice target.

“He could be a Galaxy horse in Sydney or those 1100-metre or 1200-metre races in Brisbane over the carnival,” he said.

“He’s won that way. He’s got a couple of little issues but we’re on top of that.

“I’d say he’s going to be a nice, Soft-track sprinter going forward.”

Last Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Russian Revolution took out The Galaxy as a three-year-old on a Heavy-rated track narrowly holding off stablemate Redzel.

That form was more than franked over the spring when runner-up Redzel won The Everest – Darley Classic double.

Pre-field The Galaxy odds at bookmakers around the country currently list Gerald Ryan’s Snitzel colt Menari, third in the Golden Rose Stakes last September, as the narrow favourite ahead of last year’s runner-up Redzel.

Redzel returned to racing last weekend at Flemington as the odds-on favourite in the Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning (1000m) and looked the winner until first-up specialist Redkirk Warrior reeled off blistering late sectionals to steal the victory.
