Happy Trails Set For Adelaide Sprint Return

Wednesday, 5th August 2015

Meanwhile, as the traditional stoke up towards the Spring Carnival starts in earnest, multiple Gr1 winner Happy Trails appears likely to resume on Saturday in Adelaide's Gr3 David Coles AM Spring Stakes over 1200m at Morphettville. According to horseracing.com.au, the consistent Paul Beshara-trained galloper is working his way towards this year's Gr1 Cox Plate, a race in which he finished runner-up two years ago to Shamus Award. That's despite the 8YO gelding being tipped in June as a possible runner in the 2015 Melbourne Cup due to becoming more dour as he ages. As flagged a few months ago, Happy Trails is expected to have his first Melbourne start this season when tackling the Gr1 NZ Bloodstock Memsie Stakes (1400m) later this month.
