Baker Wants An Aeon Win To Green Light Stakes Test

By Ray Hickson

The deeper end could be coming sooner rather than later for emerging three-year-old Green Aeon should he keep his unbeaten record intact at Warwick Farm on Wednesday.

Trainer Bjorn Baker stressed he’s not getting ahead of himself but has a carnival race picked out if the gelding wins the Star Turn @ Vinery Handicap (1400m).

The race in question is the Listed South Pacific Classic, also over 1400m, at Randwick on Queen Elizabeth Stakes Day (April 13).

“He’s going to have to win and win well to warrant going there,’’ Baker said.

“It’s always a step up from a maiden up against what isn’t an easy race in the city but I would like to think he has a big future.’’

Green Aeon made an impressive debut with an all the way win at Warwick Farm two weeks ago.

The son of Snitzel has taken some time to make it to the track – his first trial was in June last year – but Baker believes it’s a blessing in disguise.

“His work has been excellent, he’s always shown a lot of ability. He’s a bit of a natural,’’ Baker said.

“He’s still a bit green and he did a little bit wrong at his first run but I was really happy with him.’’

The gelding was able to control the race on debut to the extent Kerrin McEvoy was able to get away with running the slowest sectionals from both the 800m-600m and 600m-400m before sprinting home.

Punter’s Intelligence data shows his last 400m of 22.80 was clearly superior to his rivals.

Baker said he expects Green Aeon, early $2.80 favourite with TAB, to race handy again and assuming he sails through the soft ground, which he has handled in trials, he should be hard to beat.

“He has natural speed, he’ll jump and put himself there. He’s probably drawn the right part of the track out a bit too,’’ he said.

“You never really know for sure how they handle it but his gallops on it have been pretty good.

“Regardless of what happens he’s going to be a nice horse next season.’’
