Ar­rossire has fam­ily tra­di­tion to up­hold

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - RACING - SHAYNE O’CASS

TRACEY Bart­ley is ev­ery chance to train his sixth win­ner out of the one brood­mare, Elishir, when the promising debu­tante Ar­rossire steps out in the Sil­ver Goblet Pre­view (1100m) at Dubbo to­day.

Bart­ley, at one point in time dur­ing their ca­reers, trained Ar­rossire’s sib­lings, namely the stakes win­ners Marchinksi and Shep­ishir, as well as the stakes-placed grey Theopho­rus.

In fact, Ar­rossire is a full-sis­ter to Marchin­ski whom Bart­ley sad­dled up to win the 2009 Group 3 ATC Fred­er­ick Clis­sold Hand­i­cap at Rose­hill Gar­dens.

The daugh­ter of the pro­lific sire Magic Al­bert was tipped out af­ter an ad­e­quate fifth at the of­fi­cial 2YO tri­als at Rand­wick last Septem­ber. She clearly ben­e­fited from the break on the score of her im­pres­sive heat win at home at Wy­ong on May 1.

“Ar­rossire is prob­a­bly a lit­tle bit im­ma­ture but she did ev­ery­thing right in her trial the other day so she’s ready to go,” Bart­ley said.

“It is a bit eas­ier out there (at Dubbo) than any­thing around here at the mo­ment.”

The for­mer jockey and mul­ti­ple Group 1-win­ning trainer will also use to­day’s Dubbo meet­ing to kick off the ca­reer of Con­grats geld­ing Great Job. The chestnut has tri­alled three times dat­ing back to last Au­gust and has made a pos­i­tive im­pres­sion in all of them.

“He is a big, raw-boned horse and the trip away will do him good; toughen him up and prob­a­bly make a horse of him,” Bart­ley said.

Bart­ley’s third and fi­nal run­ner mak­ing the trek from Wy­ong to Dubbo to­day is Mal­laco Princess, a daugh­ter of the VRC Derby win­ner Monaco Con­sul.

The four-year-old mare has run six times in her ca­reer, not all of them for Bart­ley.
