Dubai Option For The Quarterback
Melbourne trainer Robbie Griffiths says he is contemplating an overseas campaign with top sprinter The Quarterback. Last year's Gr1 Newmarket Handicap is set to resume in the Gr1 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes at Flemington in February, before a decision is made whether to travel to Dubai for the Gr1 Al Quoz Sprint (1200m) in March. "He'll be back in the stables next week and will run first up in the Lightning," Griffiths told racing.com. "He's so good at Flemington so we always target the key sprints there and he is also nominated for Dubai."
