CAN anyone stop one of the emerging champions of the track, Castalong Shadow?
This year’s Group 1 Bathurst Gold Crown winner comes back to the scene of that success this Wednesday night, fresh off a victory in the Group 3 Rod Fitzpatrick Memorial at Menangle.
Geoff Simpson’s colt will be part of a strong $15,000 Alabar NSW Breeders Challenge 2YO Colts & Geldings Heat (1,730 metres) at Bathurst Paceway, going out from gate six.
One of the biggest challengers standing in the way of Castalong Shadow is Steve Turnbull’s Maximus Red.
Gold Crown third place finisher Maximus Red is in superb form.
The American Ideal colt had a nice pay day last start with victory in the Group 2 APG Consolation Final.
Castalong Shadow and Maximus Red already boast a combined $126,000 in prizemoney.
Meeting starts at 4.57pm.
