Tony Gollan Says Vega One Likely to Join June 6 Stradbroke Handicap

SUNSHINE COAST, Queensland – Vega One is going to appear again at the 1,000-metre Open Handicap on Saturday, April 25. This weekend sporting event will take place at the Sunshine Coast. Moreover, out of the 18 entries received on Monday, Vega One is the highest-rated. Tony Gollan has already confirmed the participation of his gelding this coming weekend in the horse race. He added that he would let the four-year-old son of One Funny Honey and Lope De Vega compete in the Stradbroke Handicap if he gets pleased with his racehorse’s performance in the next few days.

Since the summer, Vega One has not participated in any horse races. He bagged victories in two sporting events. One of them is the Magic Millions Cup, in which his victory augmented his cash prize to $956,000, according to the news by Australian horse betting tips and news website JustHorseRacing.com.au. The bay-coloured gelding took part in The Gateway as well, in which his triumph guaranteed him of an automatic start in the Stradbroke Handicap.

Vega One is making his initial stride as preparation for his participation in the Group One Stradbroke Handicap. The talented Eagle Farm sporting horse has had a single soft test to get him ready for his return when fourth behind the swift Wonder Boom last month at Doomben.

Gollan remarked that he and his team had prepared Vega One almost one year ago. He added that he had always had the 2020 Stradbroke Handicap in the back of his mind for his charge. Also, Gollan pointed out that he had always thought about his racehorse joining that match after he was victorious in two competitions as a three-year-old sporting horse. The racehorse trainer shared that the summer engagement of Vega One enabled him to get qualified into the Stradbroke field. Gollan cited that his galloper succeeded through bagging the win in The Gateway. The latter holds a ballot-free prerequisite into the Stradbroke.

The Stradbroke Handicap is a 1,400-metre horse race conducted at the Eagle Farm Racecourse in Brisbane. This year, this sporting event will take place on Saturday, June 6, 2020. Also, in Queensland, it is one of merely two Group One horse races that will take place this winter. The Stradbroke Handicap had its cash prize slashed from $1.5 million down to $350,000. This event comes following the drastic re-shaping of the regular carnival due to the economic repercussions that the coronavirus crisis has caused.
