New Universe Has World At His Feet

By Brad Gray

Chris Waller may have been in the US attending the Kentucky Derby on a fact-finding mission but his stable still flexed it’s muscles at Rosehill with a first four in the Sydney Markets Foundation Handicap (1800m) led home by Black On Gold before ex-Kiwi New Universe made a big impression on his Australian debut.

New Universe, who had three starts in New Zealand, winning two of them, was bought by Guy Mulcaster, who is the man behind purchasing many of Waller’s best horses including champion mare Winx.

New Universe won like a very smart horse

“He arrived and hasn’t put a foot wrong. He has shown us a lot of ability at home and today put the writing on the wall to be a three-year-old with a pretty bright future,” said Waller’s Racing Manager Liam Prior.

“He only had the one trial and a jump out at home and he has turned up today and done a great job. There are no plans at this stage but he is the ideal horse to place through the grades.”

Earlier in the day, Black On Gold got the better of stablemate Octavian Augustus with Oklahoma Girl with Cross Stitch rounding out a stable quartet.

Black On Gold proved too strong

“(Black On Gold) was pretty stiff last start not to have won and I said to Brenton today if he gets a nice run midfield try and get him out in the open with clear room,” Prior said. “When he came with his run he let down quite strong so he deserves a trip to Brisbane and is a horse that is going to be better over further too.”

“I’m not sure if it was Brenton that was wayward or the horse,” joked Prior. “He wanted to roll around a bit but when the whips were cracking he kept finding which is the main thing.”

“The horse is still improving and he’s going to keep getting better with race experience.”
