Prince Of Brooklyn to Target 2015 Caulfield Guineas

August 11th, 2015

Mick Price has been thrilled with the continually-building condition of Prince Of Brooklyn in the lead-up to his Spring Carnival campaign and has revealed he will set the unbeaten colt on a path towards the 2015 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) this time.

Prince Of Brooklyn has appeared on course only twice competitively but has more than stamped his claims as one to watch in taking out the Group 3 National Stakes (1200m) and Elvstroem Classic (1300m) with complete ease.

The Magnus colt completed a strong barrier trial alongside stable mate Ready For Victory on Monday and will be set for a racing return in the Group 3 McNeil Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on August 29th.

“Both horses are very well in themselves and will kick off in the same race which is the McNeil Stakes,” Price told Racenet.

“After the McNeil he will run in the Henry Bucks at Flemington, the Caulfield Guineas Prelude and then the Caulfield Guineas.

“I’m confident he will get 1600 metres, I feel he has improved off albeit a shortish break.

“His trial was very good and he handled the ground well.”

Price is pleased with Prince Of Brooklyn’s current condition but believes another trial will be key in him being ready for a competitive return in late August.

“That will give him a week and a half into the race on the 29th,” he said.

“It’s a busy program and I will have to monitor him. I’d want him to have a full tank for the Guineas.”

Price is unsure if Ready For Victory will effectively stretch out to a mile but has revealed he will set the three-year-old for the Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) in early September.

“I reckon Ready For Victory will go to the Golden Rose,” Price said.

“The Coolmore (Stud Stakes) is a stallion-making race and if it looks like he is brilliant enough then that could be the way to go.”
