Take Two For Horsey McHorseface

By Brad Gray

Bjorn Baker has several runners at Rosehill and even Egyptian Symbol running in a Group One in Adelaide but he’ll be keeping a very close eye on Mudgee on Saturday where Australia’s most high-profile maiden Horsey McHorseface will step out again.

The cult three-year-old ran third on debut at Kembla Grange beaten out of sight by sharp filly Memes but back to country company and out slightly in trip has Baker confident that he’ll break through in the Coolmore Stud Maiden Handicap (1100m).

Debut of Horsey McHorseface at Kembla

“He has shown nice ability and it was a good run first-up. He is probably looking for 1200m but the 1100m should suit and he is going well. He came thought that first-up run really well. We’re happy with him,” Baker said.

“It was a very fast 1000m race at Kembla and on the first firm track we’ve seen in a while, he was run off his feet a touch. Hopefully on Saturday he can find his feet and finish off. He’ll be very competitive.”

So competitive that Horsey McHorseface will carry the extra weight of being ‘Bjorn’s Best’ which is the stable’s weekly Twitter tip.

“Greg Ryan is on and he rides very well for me. He has drawn perfectly so he should be able to put him in the right spot.”

Baker has enjoyed great success at Mudgee so far this season with four winners from 11 starters.
