Three runners on Saturday at Belmont, with Cappo D’Oro taking centre stage when he runs in the $150,000 Group 3 Strickland Stakes over 2000 metres.
He goes into the race off a last start fifth in the Group 3 Hyperion Stakes over 1600 metres. The step up in distance will suit him.
We would dearly love Cappo to win this race as part owner Brad Thomason is the managing director of D’Orsogna Limited, who is this year’s race sponsor.
Three year old filly Daishio goes around in the 3YO 62+ event over 1200 metres. Her last start fifth was a fair effort given she was slow away on a heavy 8 track. It is a strong field so she will need to be at her best.
Our 4YO Rogano gelding In Love With Paris returns from a spell when he competes in the benchmark 70+ over 1200 metres. He goes into the race off a good trial win. We expect this talented galloper to add to his win record this campaign.
Good luck to our partners.
