Colt To Show Who's Boss

Wednesday, 21st February 2018

Trainer Mick Price has confirmed that top colt Mighty Boss will take his place in Saturday's $500,000 weight-for-age Gr1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield. A surprise 100-1 winner of last season's Gr1 Caulfield Guineas, Mighty Boss (Not A Single Doubt-Bullion Mansion, by Encosta de Lago) showed that win was no fluke when resuming with an unlucky 7th (beaten just 0.9 length) behind Hartnell in the Gr1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield two weeks ago. "He's a tough horse, and I think he's pulled up really well," Price told racing.com. "He worked on the steeple grass last Saturday morning and worked well. He worked with Holy Snow this morning [Tuesday] on the Polytrack. He worked super. He came back in and had a little pigroot after he galloped, so he will definitely be accepted with and the plan is to run." Price added: "He's going to take his place. He just needs to draw a gate, have a bit of luck in running, no traffic and I'm sure he'll be competitive again." Price is hoping Mighty Boss can be at his peak for the Gr1 Australian Guineas (1600m) at Flemington on 3 March.
