Prominent Victorian breeder, Robert Crabtree, is not your regular ‘omen’ kind of guy, but even he had pause for thought after acceptances for Saturday’s races.
Rob has three of his runners entered tomorrow : all of which will, naturally enough, be carting his familiar red and white checked livery.
But here’s where ‘coincidence’ picks up the pace … all three are running within 30 minutes of each other – Gybe in Guineas Restaurant Handicap at Canterbury at 4pm; Rock Me Sweet in the Veolia Environmental Services at Flemington at 4.20pm and; Flokkati in the Contour Consulting Engineers at the Gold Coast at 4.30pm.
Each of them are fillies, each have drawn wide (Gybe 12 of 12, Rock Me Sweet 13 of 13 and Flokkati 17 of 20), each has won one metropolitan race to date, each is by boom stallion, Fastnet Rock, and each of them will be visiting his Group One winning sprinter Magnus (whose first crop sold up to $170,000 this summer and topped the Inglis Sydney Classic Yearling Sale) when their racing days are over.
Big question is, which track will Crabtree grace? The lounge chair in front of TVN is starting favourite!
