26/8/2019  Maher and Eustace Humidor to tackle Memsie

Multiple Group One winner Humidor (NZ) (Teofilo) will tackle the Gr.1 New Zealand Bloodstock Memsie Stakes (1400m) this weekend for new trainers Ciaron Maher and David Eustace, with Maher looking forward to him making his debut for the stable. Previously trained by Darren Weir, Humidor won the Memsie Stakes second-up last year and will be entering Saturday’s race first-up this time around. Maher said after two official trials and a jump-out, Humidor was ready to make his racetrack return after missing the autumn with a leg injury. Humidor will be ridden by Damian Lane who was aboard the gelding when he ran third to Winx (Street Cry) in last year’s Gr.1 Cox Plate (2040m). “He’s had three trials now and he’s ready to go, but will be improved by the run,” Maher said. “He’s a quirky bugger but he seems free and happy and Damian Lane knows him very well and he’s happy with him.” Maher is aiming Humidor towards a third attempt at the Cox Plate after his second and third in the past two years. The trainer does not believe the gelding has lost any of his ability after his injury lay-off. “He’s shown me enough but I haven’t squeezed him that hard yet,” Maher said
