With Xerri’s Return, Toby Edmonds Feels Optimistic, Eyes More Wins
QUEENSLAND, Australia — Toby Edmonds has expressed his upbeat sentiment as he and his group completed their preparation of Xerri for the forthcoming competitions. The racehorse trainer hopes that the returning galloper can bag more wins, adding to The Harrovian’s victories. On Saturday, Edmonds will be in Melbourne with jockey Brad Stewart for The Harrovian in the All-Star Mile happening at Moonee Valley.
He cited that it is an understatement to remark a two state double would be favourable, based on the news posted online by Australian horse betting information and news source Racenet. The Harrovian is Edmonds’s Bundall runner. This seven-year-old, bay-coloured gelding has raked in $898,830 worth of cash prizes at the time of writing. With this profile of Edmonds’s high-performing racehorse, he expects Xerri to accomplish more, too, similar to Harrow and Fastnet Rock’s son.
Xerri is reportedly an expensive gelding. The three-year-old, brown and black-coloured Gold Coast gelding had the hefty price tag of $410,000. Acquiring him at the 2019 Magic Millions Yearling Sales has provided Edmonds’s team considerable advantages as few better-bred racehorses compete in Queensland than his runner.
Xerri’s record currently stands at four minor placings and eight starts for a win. He has trialled excellently for his comeback to horse racing on Sunday, per Edmonds. Xerri is also reportedly ready to live up to his trainer’s high early expectations. Edmonds and his son, Trent, has given the returning gelding every opportunity to prepare first-up on Sunday. Xerri has trialled twice at the Gold Coast, with the latest a close up second last week.
Edmonds relayed that his galloper’s trials had been solid. He added that it is time for his racehorse to live up to his breeding. Stewart was aboard Xerri in both trials, and he will ride the racehorse on Sunday again. This season, the jockey has been riding for Edmonds regularly. Additionally, in recent months, the partners have combined for eight winning racehorses.
In an entires and geldings Class One event, Xerri will step out on Sunday. This tilt is a 1,000-metre horse race at the Sunshine Coast. With this forthcoming contest, it is reportedly a long way from the initial agenda for the galloper. Edmonds entered Xerri for 2020 Group One Golden Slipper and Group One Australian Sires.
Moreover, at Xerri’s first start, he got unplaced behind outstanding Queensland runner Rothfire in February last year. Then, he bagged victory at his succeeding start at Doomben. Edmonds’s runner, whose parents are Sempre Libera and Snitzel, missed the COVID-19-truncated winter carnival. In the Brisbane spring, Xerri returned to have six starts. Xerri’s present race record is two wins from nine starts, with prize money totalling $65,175.
