Veranillo Lays Down Slipper Credentials

By Brad Gray

John O’Shea said earlier in the week that Veranillo was in Godolphin’s top five two-year-olds and the colt vindicated that opinion by taking out the Listed Hinchinbrook Plate at Randwick.

“He is an unassuming little fella with plenty of improvement. I think when he gets a little bit of head gear he’ll be even better. He’s learning his trade while he is winning which is really nice,” said O’Shea.

“He is a good, tough conveyance from our resident sire Medaglia d’Oro who always comes up with a lovely colt and a good two-year-old for us each year.

“He has always been a really nice horse and we’ve always felt that despite the fact he is a lazy worker at home that he’ll produce on race day and at the moment he is doing that.”

Veranillo produced another professional display

It’s all systems go towards the Golden Slipper now.

“That’ll probably get him in now in terms of prize money. We can just smoke out pipe now give him a run and at some stage we’ll put the blinkers on in the lead up to the Slipper and see if it can find us a bit more.”

Veranillo, who is now two from two having won back in November at Rosehill, also kept up the good recent form of James Doyle.

“Like John said he is very unassuming. He gets behind the bridle and is quite lazy but the more you get stuck into him the more he responds and he was exactly the same today,” said Doyle.

“The leader went off quite quick so we were a couple of lengths but I was just keen on keeping him up to his work. I didn’t want to get too relaxed on him and they surrounded him and did him for a turn of foot but he dug deep and picked up. It was a very professional performance.”
