DESPATCH NOW HEADING TO STRADBROKE

Despatch, winner of last Saturday’s Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m) is expected to continue his brilliant autumn campaign in the Group 1 $A1.5million Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) in Brisbane next month.

Trainer Tony McEvoy yesterday confirmed the in-form four-year-old, who has won all four of his starts this campaign, would be flown to Queensland for the Stradbroke, which will be run at Eagle Farm on June 8.

Despatch provided jockey Todd Pannell with his first Group 1 victory when successful on the sprinter at Morphettville on Saturday.
