Alpha on One path after Sandown test for new stable

Listen to this article
Alpha One joined Busuttin and Young’s camp lower than a fortnight in the past however the trainers instantly threw the three-year-old into a troublesome contest against older horses.Busuttin said Group races had been the aim with Alpha One, who beforehand raced in the care of the Peter and Paul Snowden camp, with the Adams Stakes to point whether or not the colt may measure as much as autumn options.AUTUMN CARNIVAL OFFER: UNLOCK EVERYTHING ON RACENET FOR $1“They are hoping the horse is a Group horse but there’s no set plans,” Busuttin said.“I guess if he were to win on Thursday, we’d look at a race like the (Group 2) Rubiton Stakes.“I suppose the Oakleigh Plate is the logical target but, at the end of the day, he is a rating 77 horse.“Thursday will tell the story.”While Alpha One continues to be rated under his rivals in the Adams Stakes, the son of Super One has a formidable kind reference on his file.Giga Kick wanted each centimetre of the Caulfield straight to run down Alpha One when the pair met in the Group 3 Vain Stakes (1100m) last August.Giga Kick went on to win the Group 2 Danehill Stakes before his memorable win in Australia’s richest race, The Everest, in Sydney.“We say he’s only a rating 77 horse but he’s been beaten a nose by a horse that won The Everest,” Busuttin said.“Weight-wise, he doesn’t get in that well on Thursday but we’ll find out exactly where the horse is in the order of things.”Busuttin said the secure had only sufficient time to present Alpha One a single gallop before Thursday’s race however the sprinter is match sufficient for the $175,000 function after his first-up fifth in Sydney last month.“We’ve only had the horse a week but, from what I’ve seen of him, he’s a sound horse with a very good action,” Busuttin said.“He had a little run along on Saturday and the track rider was very happy with him.“He’s turned up in great order, which you would expect when coming from a top stable like the Snowdens.”Alpha One is a $5.50 probability in TAB’s early market on the Adams Stakes.The Clinton McDonald-trained Star Patrol is the $2.20 favorite.
