Kiwi Colt Readying for Australian Debut
Meanwhile, Eleonora's Gr1-performed stable-mate Jon Snow is set to make his Australian debut in the Gr2 Tulloch Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday week (25 March), reports NZ Racing Desk. "He'll run in the Tulloch Stakes and if he runs well he'll go to the Derby [Gr1 Australian Derby]," Forsman said. Jon Snow (Iffraaj-Orinda, by O'Reilly) has been in excellent form this preparation without collecting a major reward. He was placed in the Gr1 Levin Classic, the Gr2 Great Northern Guineas and the Listed Karaka Mile before he also finished a last-start third in the Gr1 New Zealand Derby. "He's very brave and honest and a bit of rain would suit him," Forsman said.
