ILLUSTRIOUS ALQUOZ BOUND IN DUBAI

Gun Sprinter Illustrious Lad has been given an invitation to the richest race meeting in the world to compete in the Group 1 Alquoz Sprint 1200m along with Bjorn Baker trained Music Magnate. The Group 2 winning sprinter will contest the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate before heading off to Meydan where he will contest the $1,000,000.00 dollar race with regular rider Anthony Darmanin on board.

"We are incredibly humbled to recieve this invitation on behalf of the managing owner Anthony Panozzo and would like to thank him , the Committee , Neil Jennings and all the other associated people that helped create this opportunity not only for the horse but for the entire team attached to the stable including the connections. Opportunities like these dont come everyday and the horse certainly deserves his chance and we are sure he will do Australia proud" states Gelagotis 

On the 31st March 2018 all eyes will be glued to the International arena of Meydan where both these Australian horses will take on the might of the world and it promises to be a great race for certain - ozzie ozzie ozzie oi oi oi will hopefully be the final cheer for either connections as they strive for International glory to follow in the footsteps of Buffering from recent times.

We wish both Illustrious Lad & Music Magnate all the very best on this amazing International Journey in Dubai and you can follow social media platforms on there progress building towards the World  Cup meeting at @gelagotisracing on Twitter or Peter Gelagotis Racing on Facebook - GO THE LAD !!!

 

CALL ME HANDSOME SALUTES IN FEATURE

Hong Kong import Call Me Handsome has been a very consistant performer since arriving from Asia when prepared by Melbourne Cup winning trainer David Hall at his first 2 starts where he won on debut and then run a great 3rd to local champion Pakistan Star.

The original UK import then went amiss and has been sent to Australia to Team Gelagotis who have the great facilities to cater for horses with these issues and this decision has proved very fruitful for all concerned where the horse has had 5 starts for a win , 2 seconds & two thirds all in decent city grade or showcase races throughout Victoria.

"Winning the $50k feature recently at Sale was a huge thrill for our stable with the opportunity to have this horse and he is just a young horse in the mind who is learning all the time and we think in the future he will be a very good decent stakes class of horse who will keep improving" Gelagotis states

The new facilities at Gelagotis Racing from Moe to Cranbourne & Coronet Bay on the beach is certainly paying dividends for the Gippsland based conditioner who appears to be building a huge army of promising gallopers in his care.
