Everest Hopefuls to Trial

Thursday, 3rd August 2017

Lindsay Park's Group One-winning sprinters Redkirk Warrior and Vega Magic will trial at Flemington on Friday as they step up their preparations for the spring, reports AAP. Former Hong Kong-based speedster Redkirk Warrior (Notnowcato-Flag, by Selkirk) broke through at the elite level when scoring an explosive first-up win in the Gr1 Newmarket Handicap in March. He could return in the Gr2 Bobbie Lewis Quality (1200m) at Flemington on 16 September. Meanwhile, Vega Magic (Lope de Vega-Admirable, by Magic Albert) continued the impressive strike rate of WA sprinters in the eastern states when landing the Gr1 Goodwood at Morphettville in May. The Listed Regal Roller Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on 19 August has been earmarked as his possible return. Both gallopers are being aimed at the inaugural $10 million The Everest (1200m) at Royal Randwick on 14 October.
