Sun City Resumes At Sandown

Wednesday, 4th September 2019

Rated as one of the most promising juvenile colts in the country leading up to the 2019 Magic Millions 2YO Classic, 3YO colt Sun City (Zoustar-Roulettes, by Flying Spur) makes his long-awaited return to the track at Sandown on Wednesday over 1000m in Race 4. After winning the Gr3 B.J. McLachlan Stakes (1200m) at Doomben on 29 December, Sun City was given a long break before reappearing in a 980m Cranbourne trial on heavy going, which he won handsomely. Also runner-up in the Listed Maribyrning Trial Stakes (1000m) at Flemington and the Listed Phelan Ready Stakes (1100m) at Doomben, his 63kg impost will be reduced to 60kg with the claim of apprentice Lewis German. Carrying the silks of Qatar Bloodstock for trainers Tony and Calvin McEvoy, Sun City holds entries for both the Gr1 Golden Rose in Sydney and Gr1 Caulfield Guineas in Melbourne. He tackles some progressive fellow 3YOs but should run a bold race first up at close to each-way odds.
