Antonio Giuseppe Returns “A Better Horse”

By Brad Gray

The writing was on the wall with his eye-catching trials and Antonio Giuseppe brought that form to Rosehill first-up, suggesting he is in for a very lucrative autumn campaign.

“That was a dominant performance,” said Chris Waller stable representative Charlie Duckworth.

“Strawberry Boy is not an easy horse to get past and he ambled up to him with relative ease and 1500m is as short as he can run up to. He looks like he is in for a serious preparation.

“We haven’t really turned the screw on him. He just had his two trials but being Group and Listed trials they’ve just had that little bit more pressure so as a result makes them that little bit fitter.

“He has certainly got a bit of dash in him and in his last trial he was up besides Winx.”

Antonio Giuseppe came right away at the finish

It’s easy to forget the son of Shocking is still only a four-year-old. He’ll likely be seen next in the Group Three Neville Sellwood Stakes (2000m) on the 25th of March but the Sydney Cup on Day 2 of The Championships is the ultimate goal for the son of Shocking.

“That’d be his grand final but he’s got the BMW to take out first. If he can do that, then it’s a massive bonus. Off today he looks like he’ll be right in the market in all of them.”

“He used to over race and do little odd things wrong. He just seems more mature and physically a better horse.”

Meanwhile, Omei Sword looked sharp in an exhibition gallop at Rosehill in between races, clocking 34.47s for her last 600m.

Waller said afterwards that it would knock any nervous energy out of the filly and that she is on track to resume in the Surround Stakes next Saturday at Randwick, where she’ll meet Global Glamour.
