Gai Waterhouse’s stable star Fiorente is set to begin his autumn campaign in Melbourne, before returning to Sydney to target the mega bucks on offer in ‘The Championships’.
The Melbourne Cup winner’s likely plan will be to resume in Melbourne, then contest the Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) at Flemington on March the 8th.
“We haven’t finalised anything yet, we’ll have to sit down with the owners, but I am keen to have a Victorian campaign first,” Waterhouse told News Corp Australia.
“We’ll have everything mapped out in the next couple of weeks,” said Waterhouse.
The imported stayer’s Sydney Grand Final would be the $4 million dollar Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m).
