Gr1 Targets For Shadows Cast

Thursday, 26th July 2018

Mark Oulaghan will be keeping an eye on both the opposition and the weather before confirming Shadows Cast's spring program, reports NZ Racing Desk. The Awapuni trainer has entered his stakes winner in both the Gr1 Tarzino Trophy (1400m) and the Gr1 Windsor Park Plate (1600m) at Hastings, but he will be taking a realistic approach. "He's got nominations for those first two days at Hawke's Bay, although that could be a fraction too rich for him so we'll see a bit nearer the time whether we go there," said Oulaghan. "It's undecided and it will all be influenced by the weather anyway. He hasn't had a gallop yet and we'll get him going in the next couple of weeks." Shadows Cast is a winner of 8 of his 27 starts, including last November's Gr2 Coupland's Bakeries Mile (1600m). Oulaghan said the rising 6YO will once again be aimed at the Riccarton feature. "He would probably run in the Captain Cook Stakes and go back to Christchurch for the Coupland's," he said.
