2/7/2019 Perth three-year-old set for Golden Eagle

The Chris Gangemi-trained Samizdat (Not A Single Doubt) will forego a preparation built around his local Perth Summer Carnival and will instead be targeted towards the $500,000 Silver Eagle (1300m) on October 12 with a view to earning his place in the inaugural $7.5 million The Golden Eagle (1400m) the following month. “A couple of the big guns shouldn’t be in the Silver Eagle and if we run top three we have a crack at the big one,’’ Gangemi told Racing NSW. “It’s ridiculous prize-money. It’ll rule him out of our carnival but a $7.5 million race is next level. He can race in $1 million races here next year.’’ Looking ahead to his preparation, Gangemi added: “I’m sure we can find a 1200-metre race a couple of weeks out from when we need to be starting in Sydney. If he’s still racing well and warrants a trip we’ll try to get there.”
