QLD Option for Kiwi Stayer

Tuesday, 23rd January 2018

Group One performed stayer Sacred Master (Mastercraftsman-Trickle, by Storm Creek) is heading back to a familiar environment, reports NZ Racing Desk. The well-performed 6YO is about to return to the Cambridge yard of Tony Pike after a successful stint with champion Australian trainer Chris Waller. "He's been in pre-training for six weeks and is due back here shortly," Pike said. "He won't be ready for the Auckland Cup so we'll look to give him a couple of runs here a bit later and there's a chance he could go to Brisbane for the Queensland carnival." Sacred Master won six races, including the Gr2 Avondale Cup (2400m), and finished third in the 2016 Gr1 Auckland Cup (3200m), before linking up with Waller's stable. During that time he won Gr3 Newcastle Cup (2300m), finished runner-up in the Listed Wyong Cup (2100m), and ran fourth in the Gr1 The Metropolitan (2400m).
