BIG PARADE SENT FOR A SPELL

Mark Newnham trained Big Parade is set for a spell on the sidelines after plans to tackle the Group One Doomben 10,000 were scrapped with issues in attitude cited for the sudden change in plans and a decision to miss the entire Winter Carnival

Big Parade set for spell after poor trial

Newnham was keen to send Big Parade north of the border to take on the riches of the Brisbane Winter Carnival with an aim at the Doomben 10,000 however a poor showing in a recent trial changed the Sydney conditioner’s mind to pull the pin on the whole campaign.

On what was supposed to be a launchpad for Big Parade to head to the $1m Doomben 10,000 he misbehaved in the lead up and when in the barriers leading to a poor showing at the Randwick barrier trial.

Big Parade, a gelding by Deep Field had an absolute shocker after the jump where he missed the jump and then failed to land a glove on the winner, finishing 6 lengths off the leading group in the 1045m hit out.

The 5yo Gelding had gone through a strong Autumn campaign including a third place finished in the Group 1 Galaxy.


After the poor showing, Newnham was quick to address the performance by pulling the pin on any sort of winter campaign. 

“His attitude is just not quite right,” Newnham said.

“We were only going up for the (Doomben) 10,000 anyway and off that trial he couldn't win it so we are going to spell him.

Obviously not to disinterest in Big Parades ability after the poor showing the Sydney conditioner did still have plans for the Spring. 

“There are plenty of options for a horse like him in the spring.”

It’ll be a big disappointment for all in bettors where Big Parade was right in the betting for the Doomben 10,000 as a $6 chance on the second line of betting.

His withdrawal from the race now leaves the Snowden-trained Mazu as the clear $2.50 for the Brisbane winter feature.
