Imanui eyes Canterbury

Townsville Bulletin - - RACING -

LEAD­ING trainer Ron Quin­ton is set to reap the re­ward for his de­ci­sion to by­pass the Get Out Stakes at Rand­wick last Satur­day in favour of a far eas­ier as­sign­ment at Canterbury today on Imanui.

The son of Al Ma­her will be lin­ing up in the ATC TAB. com. au Hand­i­cap at Bench­mark 72 level.

“If Imanui didn’t win last Satur­day but he ran a place his rat­ing would have gone up quite sig­nif­i­cantly so I thought if we stick to more our own rat­ing type race then it might be a bet­ter op­tion,’’ Quin­ton said.

Imanui has raced 10 times but today will be his first visit to the Canterbury cir­cuit.

“Canterbury is not a big track and Imanui is a big horse but I’ve rid­den and trained plenty of big horses that have han­dled Canterbury eas­ily so it shouldn’t be a fac­tor,” Quin­ton said.
