SYDNEY STOPOVER FOR BOBBY DEE

SYDNEY STOPOVER FOR BOBBY DEE

Connections of talented three-year-old stayer Bobby Dee are looking to Randwick on Saturday as an option after the gelding was stranded on the ballot for both the Group 1 Queensland Derby (2400m) and Group 2 Brisbane Cup (2400m).

The Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman-trained runner will take on older horses in Saturday’s Schweppes Handicap (2000m) for which he has drawn barrier two.

“He travelled down to Sydney last week and settled in well to Bjorn (Baker’s) stable and his plans will depend on how he goes on Saturday,” Forsman said.

“If he is competitive, then we would have to look at other options because there is good stake money to be won over there and I guess we will have to reassess and talk to the owners as to what they want to do.”
