Tulsa Ready for 2015 Caulfield Guineas Test

October 8th, 2015

Mike Moroney has been pleased with the class displayed by three-year-old Tulsa through his four start career so far, and is confident the colt is both ready and up to the task for Saturday’s featured 2015 Caulfield Guineas (1600m).

Tulsa made a competitive debut to racing for third in an Echuca maiden over 1200m in March before immediately returning to the paddock with a view towards the 2015 Spring Carnival and a Caulfield Guineas berth.

Returning for success in the Polytrack Maiden Plate (1100m) at Pakenham on August 25th, the Sebring gelding has since placed sixth in the Listed Pin & Win Stakes (1400m) and second behind Bon Aurum in the Group 3 Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m).

Charged with overcoming the wide and awkward barrier 16, Moroney told Racing Ahead he believes Tulsa has had the ideal lead-in to the 2015 Caulfield Guineas and is confident he is a winning chance on Saturday.

“He is well-practiced at it now because that is the third time that he has drawn the outside gate,” Moroney said.

“We will have to go back from that draw and we will have to rely that they are going to run along quick enough.

“Usually with those big fields they seem to because horses get caught a bit wide and have to shoulder on because you can’t sit four wide and win those races and usually with those fields it is quite truly run.”

“He appears to have kept improving.

“He is eating better and he is starting to look a little bit better in the coat.

“He has been a bit backwards, but he is certainly on the improvement.

“I am as confident as you can be going into a Group 1 because we know how hard they are to win.

“You could throw a blanket on the first seven home in the Guineas Prelude, so there is not a lot between them.

“They have met each other and couple of times now and all the form lines start to meet.”
