Merion Sydney Bound

Friday, 6th March 2015

The Sydney autumn carnival awaits talented 3YO Merion (O'Reilly-Sapphire Belle, by Danske), as long as the New Zealand-bred gelding races up to expectations tomorrow in the $500,000 Gr1 Australian Guineas (1600m) at Flemington, reports NZ Racing Desk. The son of O'Reilly resumed with an encouraging third behind Profit Share at Sandown on 7 February, before finishing fourth behind Wandjina in the Gr3 CS Hayes Stakes (1400m) at Flemington last start. "This is the race we've aimed him at and he's had two runs now," trainer Mike Moroney said. "He'll be on trial for Sydney at Flemington on Saturday. There are lots of options for a good three-year-old like him up there so we'll see how he runs here first."
