Cambridge trainers Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman will line up Trelawney Stud graduate Holy Mongolemperor in the Gr.1 Courtesy Ford Manawatu Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) at Awapuni on Saturday.
They are excited about the race and think the two-year-old colt holds a good chance or running in the money.
“I am quite looking forward to seeing how Holy Mongolemperor steps up to the 1400m," Forsman said.
"It was a really good effort at Trentham (when runner-up to Equinox over 1200m), he’s a colt with a lot of ability that seems to be improving all the time.”
Holy Mongolemperor has drawn barrier eight and will be ridden by Troy Harris.
“He will probably get back, but I think if he gets a clear run, the colt could come with a big finish. I am pretty happy with where he is at going into it," Forsman said.
The Trelawney bred son of More Than Ready was sold out of their 2018 New Zealand Bloodstock Yearling draft when pinhooked by Armourcraft Stables as a Ready To Run prospect. He was purchased for $240,000 as a two-year-old at the sale by the Inner Mongolia Rider Horse Industry.
