16/12/2019 Guineas for Star Surprise

Mike Moroney plans to send promising gelding Star Surprise (Sidereus) to Queensland for a tilt at the $2 million Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (RL, 1400m) next month. Star Surprise returned from a spell to score in a Benchmark 70 Handicap (1000m) on the Pakenham Cup program eight days ago, coming from last in the field of ten to win by one and a quarter lengths. Flemington-based Moroney said Star Surprise would fly to Queensland this week. "Whether he gets 1400 metres, we'll see," Moroney said. "I think he will and he's bred to on the dam side. He's not very big, that's the only thing. But he's a pretty good horse." He said Star Surprise was likely to have a barrier trial leading into the Guineas.
