Anniversaries All Round For Care To Think

By Brad Gray At Royal Randwick

Care To Think thumped his rivals in the TAB Highway Handicap and Matt and Keira Dunn, who were celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary will now, fittingly, look at the $200,000 Anniversary Highway on The Everest day with the four-year-old.

Care To Think gave his rivals a start and a beating

“He did a fair bit wrong up the straight but if he keeps on improving the way we think he can, he is going to be a horse for the future,” assistant trainer Keira Dunn said.

“Next preparation he is going to be even better again.

“Matt tagged (the Anniversary Highway) as a possible if he travels back okay and holds his condition. He wants to send a couple down for that so whether he fits into that category, we’ll just wait and see.”

Tye Angland, who rode a patient race on the odds on chance, shares the view that the son of So You Think is a talent but is still very much learning his craft.

“In the gates he was a handful and during the run he didn’t relax really well so I held on to him as much as I could but I had Corey’s horse (Assurity) stopping in front of me so I got going earlier,” Angland explained.

“When he got there he had a good look and hung in. He is a nice horse but I wouldn’t want to push him too far because he’ll go from winning like this to doing things wrong and finishing way back in the field.”

Upon hearing Angland’s feedback, Dunn said “Tye said that he did plenty wrong so maybe he is looking for a break.”

“I remember letting him down one day and Matt said wow look at that horse. He ran really quick time with an older horse and said I think we’ll set this horse for the Derby so (he might) put him out now and start again.”

It was the stable’s 11th Highway Handicap victory but the sight of the Dunn stable winning Highways is becoming just as familiar as Brett Cavanough running second, collecting his sixth runner-up prize, this time with Makfi Lass.
