Maiden Win Fuels Derby Dream

Tuesday, 25th October 2016

Former Cambridge trainers Trent Busuttin and Natalie Young are considering backing up Anaheim in Saturday's $1.5 million Gr1 Victoria Derby (2500m) at Flemington, reports NZ Racing Desk. The now Cranbourne-based couple produced Anaheim to win a middle distance maiden at Benalla yesterday, with the winning stake enough to gain him a start in the blue riband classic. "If he comes through this race okay then I think we have to have a crack at it," Young said. By Fastnet Rock out of the Zabeel mare Asmahan, Anaheim trialled without racing in New Zealand and he subsequently placed in each of his four starts before breaking through under rider Ben Melham. Anaheim certainly has the pedigree to make his presence felt on Saturday being out the Zabeel mare Asmahan, a daughter of New Zealand Oaks winner She's Country.
