Boom WA Juvenile Guineas Bound

Thursday, 26th July 2018

Highly regarded WA 2YO Samizdat will be aimed at the Perth racing carnival at the end of the year after scoring a brilliant debut win at Belmont Park last Saturday, reports the West Australian. By Not a Single Doubt out of the More Than Ready mare Sambar, Samizdat is a half-brother to WA Champion Fillies Stakes winner Samovare and was purchased by Gangemi Racing for $325,000 at the 2017 Magic Millions Adelaide Yearling Sale from his breeder Amelia Park, who has retained a share in him. Samizdat will be given a short spell before embarking on a WA Guineas campaign. "There was a little bit of talk about going over east, but we'll do the right thing by the horse and concentrate on our carnival," said managing owner Michael Gangemi. "If he goes well we could look at taking him over for the autumn, but we'll just take it one step at a time. He'll go out for a couple of weeks and get ready for the Belgravia first-up." The Listed Belgravia Stakes (1200m) will be run at Ascot on 27 October, while the Group 2 WA Guineas (1600m) will be run on 24 November.
