Terravista To Stay In Sydney

Wednesday, 30th September 2015

Meanwhile, fellow A-grade sprinter Terravista will remain in Sydney this weekend meaning he will miss Friday night's Gr1 Moir Stakes (1000m) at Moonee Valley. Trainer Joe Pride has opted to run Terravista in the Gr2 Premiere Stakes (1200m) at Royal Randwick, leaving his full brother Ball Of Muscle as Pride's only representative in the Moir. "He's in good order, and I think he deserves a crack at a Group One," Pride said of Ball Of Muscle when speaking on Melbourne's Radio Sport National yesterday. "You look at the line-up, I don't think there's too many Group One winners in the race. There's some really nice up-and-coming horses." He added: "He's seasoned, he's fit, he's ready to take them on." Meanwhile, Terravista has had three trials to prepare him for his return after missing the Gr2 Shorts on 19 September, including an easy 798m trial victory at Warwick Farm on Friday. "He trialled here [Warwick Farm] on Friday. He was very impressive," Pride said. "He's doing really well here at home. He's got good improvement in him going to the races for his first run, but he's primed to run well first-up." Following the Premiere, Pride said Terravista would head to Melbourne to run in the Gr1 Manikato Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on 24 October, before mounting a defence of his title in the Gr1 Darley Classic (1200m) at Flemington on 7 November.
