Spieth Third In Trial

Tuesday, 24th January 2017

Meanwhile, exciting up and coming sprinter Spieth (Thorn Park-Stella Livia, by Titus Livius) looked in top order when finishing third in his 797 metre trial heat at Warwick Farm yesterday morning. The Bryce Heys-trained Spieth marked himself as arguably the most promising sprinter in Australia when stringing together five consecutive victories last season, including the Listed City Tattersalls Lightning (1100m) at Randwick, before rounding out his spring campaign with a most unlucky second to Malaguerra in the Gr1 Darley Classic at Flemington. Like Astern, Spieth is set to kick off his campaign in Melbourne in the Gr1 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes (1000m) at Flemington on 18 February. His primary autumn target is the $2.5 million Gr1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on 1 April. Click here to watch Spieth's trial.
