D’argento Is Doncaster Bound

By Brad Gray

D’argento will next run in the $3m The Star Doncaster Mile (1600m) on Day One of The Championships.

The flashy grey colt was also being considered for the Harrolds ATC Derby, having won the Group One Rosehill Guineas last start, but instead he’ll drop back from 2000m to the mile, which is a recipe Waller has used with great success in the past.

Waller has won four of the past five Doncasters and two of them, Sacred Falls (2013) and Kermadec (2015) were with three-year-olds.

“I am pleased to advise that we have decided The Star Doncaster will be his next run where he will drop back to 1600m and race at handicap conditions where he gets in with a deserved weight of 49kg,” Waller said in a statement.

“We are also thrilled to have secured the services of Corey Brown to ride D’argento. Given this has been a successful pathway to the Doncaster in the past for the stable I am confident that he has done the groundwork to be very competitive in this race.

“D’argento is a serious colt with an extremely bright future and despite winning his Group One at 2000m I do feel he can be equally as effective at the 1600m distance.”

D’argento is currently rated a $7 chance in The Doncaster with TAB, behind only Kementari at $4 and Happy Clapper at $5.
