Rudy, Sagaronne set to trial at the Gold Coast

Tuesday morning’s barrier trial session set down for the Gold Coast will have added interest with local star Rudy & Crown Oaks aspirant Sagaronne kicking off their spring campaigns.

Trainer Helen Page has earmarked the Epsom Handicap at Randwick on October 3 as Rudy’s ultimate goal which is not surprising as his record over the famous mile speaks for itself with a Group 2 Villiers win and Group 1 Doncaster 4th at his only two attempts.

The lightly raced Sagaronne will be sent south without a local run after tomorrow’s trial with the Flemington feature her ultimate goal on November 5. We haven’t seen her since a strong finishing 2nd in the Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) behind Press Statement at Doomben in early June.

Comprehensive report on all runners will be available this week at
