Gollan has high hope for treble
TRAINER Tony Gollan is hoping a strong first-up run by Raido is a pointer to his first three-state treble.
For the first time Gollan will have runners at three metropolitan meetings today with Raido heading his Brisbane team in the Open Handicap (1200m) at Doomben.
Outback Barbie will contest the Group Two Tea Rose Stakes (1400m) at Randwick and Ef Troop the Group Two Danehill Stakes (1200m) at Flemington.
The late champion Brisbane trainer Bruce McLachlan often had three runners in three states on the same day but at the time he also had stables in NSW and Victoria.
“I am not getting ahead of myself. But we do have a chance,” Gollan said.
