Fresh Start for Theanswermyfriend
Talented Melbourne galloper Theanswermyfriend will have his first start for new trainer Darren Weir when he steps out in the Ladbrokes Cashout Handicap (1400m) at Caulfield on Saturday. Previously trained by Robert Smerdon and Henry Dwyer, Theanswermyfriend (High Chaparral-Blowin in the Wind, by Danehill) has hitherto won 4 of his 18 starts, highlighted by his victory in the Listed The Sofitel (1400m) at Flemington last spring. "He is a very good galloper, don't worry about that," Weir told racenet. "But I'm sure he has got a lot more to come after Saturday. I've got no real expectations, he is an on speed horse and he will just roll along. He's been down at my beach stable, just poking around, he has had two jump-outs and is ready to go." Weir added: "I've got no real set plans for him for the next couple of months, I just want to see how he goes on Saturday."
