Coolmore Next For Astern

Friday, 7th October 2016

Star Godolphin colt Astern will make his next appearance in the Gr1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on 29 October, reports AAP. Already a Gr1 winner of the Golden Rose last month, Astern (Medaglia d'Oro-Essaouira, by Exceed and Excel) is coming off a fast-finishing second to unbeaten colt Russian Revolution in the Gr2 Roman Consul Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on Epsom day. "We made the decision overnight that he would run in the Coolmore," Godolphin Australia's managing director Henry Plumptre said. "We looked at the Manikato Stakes and the Darley Classic up the straight, but decided in the end to stick to his own age."
