26/6/2018 PLYMOUTH ROAD COULD RUN IN WINTER CUP

Having trained his first winner for OTI Racing, Matthew Smith is hoping the same horse can step up again at Rosehill.

Plymouth Road led all the way to claim the 2400m-handicap at Randwick on Saturday and if he continues to please Smith, he will back up at Rosehill a week later.

Terry Henderson's OTI Racing is known for sourcing horses from Europe with the big spring Cups in mind but Plymouth Road was bought a little closer to home from New Zealand.

He started his career with Lee and Anthony Freedman in Victoria and was then transferred to James Cummings in NSW.

He needed a new home when Cummings joined the Godolphin operation and found his way to Smith at Warwick Farm.

"He is my first horse for OTI. I had another one but he didn't make it to the races," Smith said.
"He is a good stayer and as long as he does well he will run on Saturday in the Cup race."
Plymouth Road was one of 11 entries taken on Monday for the Listed Winter Cup (2400m) with stablemate La Courbette also in the mix. -AAP
