The sale did not eventuate and next week he will head to Sydney where he is nominated for Group One races including the Randwick Guineas (1600m) and (2000m).

“The sale fell over,” Baker told NZ Racing Desk.

“”We will take him to Sydney and race him. He is nominated over there.

“He has missed very little work because we just kept him ticking over and we'll probably go over there early next week.”

Baker has won more Australian Group One races than any other NZ-based trainer including the 2017 and Oaks with Jon Snow and Bonneval respectively.
