Anniversary Return for Cup Hope

Thursday, 14th December 2017

Wait A Sec will be back in action early next month to continue his build-up toward the Gr1 Auckland Cup (3200m) at Ellerslie in March, reports NZ Racing Desk. A surprise 30-1 winner of the Gr1 Livamol Classic (2000m) at Hastings in October, Wait A Sec will resume off a short break in the Gr3 Anniversary Handicap (1600m) at Trentham on 13 January. "We're looking to kick him off in the Anniversary at set weights and penalties," said Grant Cullen, who trains the gelding with Guy Lowry. "We'll take it from there and see how the tracks are, he can handle one or two on the firmer ground." Cullen credits Wait A Sec's resurgence in the last couple of seasons with a change in training regime at his Dannevirke property. "We work him at home and around the farm, he's just a very happy horse," he said.
