Big Trial Win for Gr1 Winner

Wednesday, 2nd August 2017

Meanwhile, the Kevin Hickman-owned Ugo Foscolo looks set for a big spring carnival judging by his brilliant barrier trial win at Rosehill yesterday. Last season's Gr1 New Zealand 2,000 Guineas winner, who is now trained by Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott, left his rivals languishing when scoring by 8.75 lengths in heat two of the morning over 1000 metres. Unplaced on his Australian debut in the Gr1 Canterbury Stakes on a rain-affected track in March, the son of Zacinto was then spelled after he pulled up with back and hind quarter muscle issues. "I've been talking to Adrian and they put Blake Shinn on him and it was a nice trial over 1000 metres," Scully said. "He pulled eight or 10 lengths away from them at the line. He was under a good hold throughout so things are looking good. He'll probably have another trial and then maybe kick off in a Group Two somewhere." Click here to watch Ugo Foscolo's trial.
