Logan Books Williams & McDonald
Donna Logan has confirmed that Craig Williams and James McDonald will ride Volkstok'n'barrell and Rising Romance when the star duo make their Sydney carnival debuts at Rosehill on Saturday, reports theinformant.co.nz. The stable-mates are due to fly out to Sydney today, with Volkstok'n'barrell set to contest the Gr1 Rosehill Guineas (2000m) and Rising Romance to line up in the Gr3 Epona Stakes (1800m). "Both horses are well, their work has been very good and they're all set to fly out tomorrow," said Logan's stable representative Kim O'Reilly. Volkstok'n'barrell will renew his rivalry with fellow Kiwi Mongolian Khan when they take on Australia's best 3YOs in the Rosehill Guineas, while Rising Romance will be looking to bounce back to form after finishing a narrow second to Sakhee's Soldier in the Gr1 New Zealand Stakes on 7 March.
