RAYMOND AIMING HIGH WITH NEW IMPORT

Maddie Raymond may not be one of the biggest names in racing just yet but her recent work with an import at her Warrnambool stable has led to bigger opportunities with another international and the stakes are much higher this time around with G1 targets on the horizon

Earlswood set to join the Maddie Raymond Stable

Raymond had the patience when working with previous import Wentwood to take the St Arnaud Cup winner through to a Group 3 Bendigo Cup winner in the space of just 12 months.

With that eye catching training performance Raymond has now landed another international galloper with Group level pedigree in the way of Earslwood.

Earlswood travelled down under already having dual Group 3 success under his belt and also ran fourth behind the impressive Hurricane Lane in the Group 1 Irish Derby.

“He’s got quite good overseas form,” Raymond said.

“He’s more of a staying type but he’s got a good turn of foot.”

Hurricane Lane franked that form by going out and winning subsequent Group 1 wins in France and the UK. 

Raymond was understandably excited to be working with an already established talent. 

“It’s super exciting to get him,” Raymond said. “I never thought 12 or 18 months ago that I’d have a horse like him in the stable.

“He’s been here about six weeks and has acclimatised really well.

“He’s a really exciting prospect to have in the stable.”

Raymond confirmed the stable were undecided as to what to do with Earlswood first up as there were so many options on the table including a look at the All Star Mile as well as the Australian Cup

“We’ll play it by ear a bit with him. We might run him first-up in the Carlyon (Cup) over a mile,” Raymond said.

“If he happens to run really well over the mile, we might have to have a look at the All-Star Mile.

“If he needs further, then we’ll go to the Peter Young (Stakes over 1800m).

“The Australian Cup has been in the back of my mind since he arrived here and we’ve been working on that, trying to learn a bit more about him.

“There’s also the Queen Elizabeth (Stakes) in Sydney.”

Earlswood currently sits as a $51 shot for the All Star Mile.
