FORSMAN BULLISH ABOUT STABLE STAR

Co trainer Andrew Forsman was particularly bullish about stable star Aegon’s chances in the $3m Doncaster Mile believing his natural ability will beat immaturity to give him every chance of Group 1 glory

There is no doubt that Aegon has the pedigree to become one of the greats and the son of Sacred Falls has the talent but he admits there are signs that the 3 year old is still in the education stage learning more on his trip to Sydney.

Before heading across the ditch Aegon boasted an unbeaten record of 4 wins from 4 starts and quickly added to his winning record when dominating the Group 2 Hobartville at Randwick.


Aegon came up short in the Randwick Guineas later that month when starting a short price favourite in his bid to claim a second Group 1 title. Forsman and co-trainer Murray Baker then decided to give the 3 year old a freshen up before tackling the Doncaster.

“He has enjoyed his freshen up and is as good as he can be,” Forsman said.

“This prep he has shown a touch of immaturity while he has been over here.

“He is struggling to cope with his racing a bit at the moment but once he is a bit older and more mature that won’t be an issue.

“Hopefully we've got a few more years racing with him yet.”

Aegon has had a month off in between runs but showed good work when winning a 1175m hit out on Thursday.

“We will give him a couple of good gallops this week,” Forsman said.

“The trial last week was good timing wise.

“It wasn't ideal to have to do it on the polytrack but not much could be done about that.

“Kerrin (McEvoy) was happy with him and he‘s a pretty push button horse so we aren’t really concerned that he will be jumping on him for the first time in a race on Saturday.

“He gets in well at the weights and should be a good chance in what is shaping up as a stronger race than it looked to be a few weeks ago.”

Aegon is currently a $13 chance for the Group 1 Doncaster Mile and is carrying the low weight of 52.5kgs in the race.
