Stakes-winning gelding Bergerac continues to thrive on racing and is scheduled to back up for the third week in a row.
Trainer Steve Tregea has accepted with Bergerac in the Open Handicap (1800m) at Eagle Farm.
“I know “they” will say I am running him three weeks in a row,” Tregea said..
“But I am mystified by the Sunshine Coast run. The sectionals indicate they weren't going all that hard in front. But Bergerac who was third on the fence coming up to the turn got beaten two and bit lengths, while the others on the pace dropped right out.”
“He went home and has eaten up every night. He seems bright and the other option is to turn him out straight away.”
“I have been wanting to try him at 1800 metres and this is our chance. It looks a nice race for him.”
Balboa Rocks has won both his starts at 1800m and trainer Darryl Hansen sees Saturday as a rare chance to run for metropolitan prize money at the distance.
