Coongy Target For Tupac

Thursday, 26th June 2014

Meanwhile, Complacent's Darley stable-mate Tupac Amaru (Street Cry-Peruvian, by Diktat), runner-up to Criterion in the Australian Derby, is likely to bypass the major staying races in the Spring according to Darley racing manager Jason Walsh. "We've probably got him pegged as being a tier below the top stayers, so at this stage of proceedings we wouldn't have any of the major Melbourne spring staying races in mind for him but we'll certainly give him his chance to progress through the grades," Walsh said. "A horse like him and (Tulloch Stakes winner) Gallatin would probably head towards the Coongy Handicap and then perhaps a race like the Zipping Classic or Sandown Cup over two miles on the last day at Sandown look really nice races on paper for those type of horses." The Gr3 Coongy Handicap (2000m) will be run at Caulfield on Cup Day, 18 October, while the Gr2 Zipping Classic (2400m) and Listed Sandown Cup (3200m) will be held at Sandown on 15 November.
