State Solicitor to Back Up?

Tuesday, 5th December 2017

Prominent Perth owner and breeder Bob Peters says smart sprinter State Solicitor could back up this weekend despite his disappointing performance in last Saturday's Gr1 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) at Ascot, reports the West Australian. State Solicitor started as favourite for the $1 million sprint feature but, apart from being held up momentarily at the top of the straight, failed to let down with his trademark sprint. Peters could offer up no excuses for the 5YO Nicconi gelding. "I don't know what to put it down to," Peters said. "He pulled up all right and at some stage we've got to try him over 1400. It just depends on how he is this week." The Gr3 AJ Scahill Stakes (1400m) is the race Peters has his eye on.
