SYDNEY, New South Wales – Chris Waller has confirmed on Monday that he does not want Kinane to participate in the Group One South Australian Derby. This competitive horse race is taking place on Saturday, May 9, and will award $500,000 in cash prize to the winner. Waller cited that he does not think it is right for the promising, brown-coloured gelding to compete in the 2,500-metre competition which will happen at the Morphettville Racecourse in Adelaide. He explained that taking part in the South Australian Derby during this time is quite early and fast for the racing career of Kinane.
Plus, he remarked that he does not want to make matters quick for the three-year-old son of Tres Rapide and Reliable Man, according to the news by Australian information and news portal Racenet. Although Kinane is no longer competing in the forthcoming South Australia match, Waller confirmed that his charge is fit and does not have any health concerns at this point.
Meanwhile, the champion racehorse trainer shared his plans for Kinane. He revealed that this coming Friday, May 8, the sporting horse would likely take a test at the Rosehill Gardens Racecourse. Then, Waller relayed that the gelding would head to the Brisbane Winter Carnival in Queensland. In that sporting event, Kinane will get one to two runs. Then, he remarked that he would spell the impressive stayer and concentrate on the spring campaign.
In Victoria, Kinane’s part-owner, Mick Kent, moulded him initially, based on the report by Australian horse betting tips and news website JustHorseRacing.com.au. Then, earlier this year, the Rosehill sporting horse got sent to Waller when Kent went on leave to take a breather from racehorse training. Last April 18 at his fourth competition, Kinane showcased his prowess with his one and 1/4-length victory in the 2,000-metre Group 3 Frank Packer Plate. This achievement of the male sporting horse held at Sydney’s Royal Randwick Racecourse comes following winning his first-ever horse race at Wyong.
