Gingernuts get all clear for Sydney
10 Mar 2017Star Goodwood Stud graduate Gingernuts will be given the opportunity to double his classic tally with Australian plans now locked in.
The Stephen Autridge and Jamie Richards-trained Gr.1 New Zealand Derby winner will make two appearances in Sydney with stable jockey Opie Bosson to ride the son of Iffraaj.
“Gingernuts has absolutely thrived since the Derby and Stephen and Jamie think he has improved,” Te Akau principal David Ellis said.
“He’ll be going on Monday and he’ll run in the Rosehill Guineas and then the Australian Derby. Jamie, who rides him in most of his work, will take him over.”
Gingernuts will return home for a break after his Sydney venture with an eye on the Melbourne spring carnival.
“He definitely won’t be going to Brisbane,” Ellis said.
