BOTT AND WATERHOUSE STAR LOOKING AT GALAXY RETURN

Adrian Bott and Gai Waterhouse trained star Farnan is set to return to racing action in Autumn with the Group 1 Galaxy the intended target for the now 3 year old colt.

The stable will undoubtedly be looking for Farnan to recapture his promising 2 year old form that saw him take out the Golden Slipper with such an emphatic all the way win just over 12 months ago.

They will be less likely to hope for a repeat of his Spring however with a sub par performance and a questionable ride dashing chances in the Group 2 Run To The Rose. Subsequently he was missing in the Everet through injury before finishing a disappointing 10th in the Coolmore Stud stakes on his first attempt down the Flemington straight.

With the stable hoping for him to recover that Autumn form it’ll be somewhat of a baptism of fire as Farnan will head to the Galaxy to tackle form sprinters Libertini, Jonker and Splintex who have already been nominated for the Group 1 feature.

“He is back in work and going great,” Bott said.

“We are hopefully going to see him at the trials in three weeks time and looking at The Galaxy as a first-up option for him.

“He is back in great shape and looks well.

“Since his last preparation he has put on some really good condition.”

Farnan’s owners Kia Ora Stud, Phoenix Bloodstock and Aquis chose to continue racing with Farnan rather than retiring the colt to stud. Prominent 2 year olds such as Capitalist and Sunlight who have had glittering juvenile careers have often been losses to the racing ranks after they are chosen to reproduce rather than race on. 

The Galaxy is a great starting point for Farnan with the Black Caviar Lightning the likely end goal. He’s currently prominent in betting at $15 in the market.
