Godolphin trainer James Cummings admitted he had a smile when he saw the name for a two-year-old, Fake, which heads for its racing debut at Kembla Grange on Saturday. The Sepoy colt out of Plagiarize is another great name from Suzanne Philcox.
“Suzanne has a wonderful imagination and ability to find a name for every one of our horses. There are some that make you smile it was one of them,” Cummings said. “She has a great knowledge and there are some names that just fit.”
Fake will be joined by Coach, a Denman colt from Patina, in the Tracey Chesher Memorial two-year-old Plate over the 900m at the South Coast track on Saturday. Cummings decided to send the two colts to Kembla with no two-year-old race in Sydney.
“I can’t remember too many 900m races at Kembla and it is a great starting point for these two horses,” Cummings said. “We need to get our two-year-olds out and racing, and without an option in town, we made the decision to head down the highway with this pair. It is probably the right place for both of them to start and it will give us some indication where they heading.
“They have been in the same two trials and Fake has finished in front of Coach on both occasions and we would like to see them just have a good experience on the big track down there.”
Cummings is also hoping to break the maidens of Olifants and Thrilled at Kembla, while Savatiano looks a good chance in the first leg of the quaddie.
