Australian Plans for Baker-Forsman Trio
Trainers Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman have their fingers crossed they can attain a travel exemption for a couple of staff members ahead of spring racing. “The horses are coming up well, that is the main thing, and we have got some good options ahead of us. What path we take will be dictated to by the COVID situation over in Australia over the next two or three weeks,” Forsman said. “The thought is to get some staff members there, it is just working through the logistics of that. Once we have got that sorted we can make further plans.” The Cambridge training partnership kicked off the spring preparations of a couple of Australian-bound hopefuls at the Te Rapa trials on Tuesday, including Gr1 Melbourne Cup (3200m) aspirants The Chosen One (who won his heat) and Quick Thinker (who tailed off last). Others of note to trial well were True Enough, plus the soon be 3YOs Suffused and Unition.
