Phar Lap On Agenda For Bryneich
Meanwhile, well related Godolphin colt Bryneich will be aimed at the Sydney autumn carnival after resuming with a brilliant 4.5 length win in a benchmark 70 race over 1250m at Canterbury Park on Friday night. "He'll gain a lot of confidence from that win," trainer John O'Shea told Sky Racing. "We'll give him another run in a couple of weeks and then look to place him to advantage after that." O'Shea nominated the Gr2 Phar Lap Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill on 11 March as a potential target for the 3YO. A Darley homebred by former Champion Australia Sire & 11-time Gr1-winner Lonhro, Bryneich is out of the dual stakes winner Bernicia, a daughter of Gr1 Blue Diamond winner Danelagh and a half-sister to Australian Oaks winner Dizelle & champion Hong Kong galloper and 6-time Gr1 winner Vengeance of Rain.
