Auckland Cup placegetter Blue Breeze will race in the Cambridge Stud colours this spring as the stayer attempts to qualify for this year’s Group 1 Melbourne Cup (3200m).
Brendan and Jo Lindsay have bought a ten per cent share in the five-year-old ahead of an ambitious tilt at the Flemington showpiece.
Breeder Tony Gavigan said the current ownership group had sold down their shareholdings and the Lindsays’ buy-in would cover the costs of Blue Breeze’s upcoming Australian campaign, while Allan Morley will continue to train the horse.
Blue Breeze is set to resume at Ruakaka on Saturday week and will probably have one further run in New Zealand before tackling the Listed Wyong Cup (2100m) on September 6. He will then contest the Group 3 Newcastle Cup (2300m) a fortnight later before a shot at the Group 1 Metropolitan Handicap (2400m) at Randwick on October 5.
