9/12/2019 Light summer for
Caulfield Guineas (Gr 1, 1600m) runner-up Alligator Blood (All Too Hard) may have just one lead-up run into the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (RL, 1400m) at the Gold Coast next month. The David Vandyke-trained three-year old has not raced since his Group 1 placing in October but won a 850-metre barrier trial at the Sunshine Coast on November 26 ahead of his short summer campaign. The Gold Edition Plate (Listed, 1200m) at Eagle Farm on Saturday and the Vo Rogue Plate (Gr 3, 1400m) had been pencilled in for the gelding, but Vandyke is now considering bypassing the December 28 race with Alligator Blood. He would then run second-up in the $2 million Gold Coast race second-up on January 11.
In early betting markets for the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas 2020 Alligator Blood is the $3.20 favourite.
