Hat-trick in grasp of Super sprinter
PUNTERS backing Super Too on Saturday in the Group 2 Harrolds Caulfield Sprint (1000m) can rest easy knowing their mare will make all her own luck in the running and give a great sight.
Tactics on the four-year-old Hinchinbrook mare aren’t hard to guess.
From an inside draw she’ll fly out of the gates and lead a small field to home turn.
Trainer Marc Conners said she’s a horse that will again be hard to run down as she shoots for her third-straight win.
“When you get good, fast tracks it’s very hard to make up ground from the back on those horses that are rolling along front,” he said.
“Those backmarkers will have to run sensational times to run us down and I think she’ll be in the race for a long way.
“There are no great secrets with her. She runs fast and she’s got no weight.”
Super Too may have won her past couple of runs impressively, but she’s making a big jump in grade tomorrow.
Conners had no hesitations entering her into the race however and she’s won five from six at the distance.
The likes of Miss Rock, Snitty Kitty and Property are all going to provide a hefty challenge while Godolphin bullish about emerging sprinter Badajoz.
“I think there’s three or four chances and Property is the main one I think,” Conners said.
Conners said his mare deserved another crack at Group racing after previously running in the Reisling Stakes and being unlucky not to win the Red Roses during last year’s Flemington carnival.
“It’s a big step up in class and we’re not taking it lightly. There’s some pretty seasoned horses in it but she gets in the race nice on the limit and she’s drawn a good gate,” he said.
“I picked out this race as soon as she won at Mooney Valley. We’re going up from a Benchmark 84 to a Group 2 race so it’s a good jump, but if she does everything right we’re going to extremely hard to beat.”
Wiona Costin gets her chance to win again on Super Too.
Conners said it was an easy decision to give the young hoop the ride on his sprint star.
“I could have put other riders on, no doubt, but she knows the horse well and has won a couple of races on her,” he said.
“Before she got injured she was riding in big races so the occasion won’t get to her at all.”
Trainer Marc Conners is confident Super Too can post her third straight win in tomorrow’s Caulfield Sprint.
