McEvoy Booked For Star Kiwi Galloper
Kerrin McEvoy will be reunited with champion New Zealand sprinter-miler Turn Me Loose in the Gr2 Australia Stakes at Moonee Valley on 27 January, reports NZ Racing Desk. "He won the Emirates [Gr1] on him last year so he knows him well," said Murray Baker, who prepares the Iffraaj 5YO with Andrew Forsman. "It's only 1200 metres and it will be too short for him, he always needs a race to get him going. The main aims are the Orr Stakes and the Futurity Stakes, which he won last year." He added: "I've got to say that we are thrilled with the way the horse is going." Turn Me Loose will be flown to Melbourne on Wednesday evening.
