Shooting To Win Primed for 2015 Randwick Guineas Success

March 4th, 2015

While included in nominations for the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) at Flemington on the same day, co-trainer Peter Snowden has confirmed the 2015 Randwick Guineas (1600m) remains the likely option for Shooting To Win this weekend.

Securing two wins and as many minor places from his six start career so far, Shooting To Win returned to racing for a credible fourth amongst particularly talented company in the Group 2 Hobartville Stakes (1400m) a fortnight ago.

Completing a strong piece of work on the Randwick course proper on Tuesday morning, Snowden told Racenet he is particularly happy with the form and condition of the Northern Meteor colt and will more than likely head to the 2015 Randwick Guineas.

“He’s all good, he’s going great,” Snowden said.

“He worked over 1200 metres, ran home the last 600 metres, really solid the last four (hundred).

“I’m really happy with him.

“We haven’t really locked in where we’re going yet but it will most likely be Sydney.”

Taking out a pair of minor races upon debuting in winter, Shooting To Win only managed to beat one runner home in the Group 3 Up And Coming Stakes (1300m) upon resuming in spring, but quickly found his feet in finishing a close second to Panzer Division in the Group 3 Ming Dynasty Quality (1400m) on September 6th.

Charging home late for a credible third in the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) on September 13th, Shooting To Win returned to the winner’s circle in the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m) before breaking through for a maiden victory at the highest level in the featured Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) on October 11th.
