Rogerson Flags Third Ferando Telegraph Tilt
Trainer Graeme Rogerson says his star sprinter Ferrando has some unfinished business with the Gr1 Telegraph (1200m) at Trentham this season. Ferrando went down by a computer pixel at the hands of Enzo's Lad in this year's race and Rogerson wants to give the Fast 'N' Famous 6YO stallion his chance to avenge that defeat in January. "He deserves to win that. I thought he'd won last season. I think most people did," Rogerson said. Ferrando has twice gone down narrowly in the Trentham feature, having finished third last year, beaten a short neck and a half neck behind Enzo's Lad and Kawi (see below). With the change to weight-for-age conditions this season, Ferrando will be well suited to the Telegraph, though he will be forced to carry big weights in handicap leadup races.
