Australian Thoroughbred

A-Z of Australian Horse Racing and Breeding.

17/2/2020 Options open for Alabama Express

C F Orr Stakes (Gr 1, 1400m) winner Alabama Express (Redoute’s Choice) will be nominated for the Futurity Stakes (Gr 1, 1400m) but trainer Mike Moroney is still undecided which path the colt will take. Alabama Express upstaged the older horses to win the weight-for-age C F Orr at Caulfield last Saturday week and Saturday's Futurity is run under the same conditions over the same course and distance. There is also the option to step him up to the Australian Guineas (Gr 1, 1600m) against his own age group on Saturday week at Flemington, or drop him back to 1200 metres in the Newmarket Handicap (Gr 1, 1200m). "He's certainly bred to be able to go further but we're sort of studying the races and the horses that we'll be racing against and those two three-year-olds looked pretty smart yesterday," Moroney said. "We think a lot of our horse too, so it's just a matter of whether we go to the mile or what we do.”
