Havatryst could go to Sydney instead of running in the Brisbane Summer Series

Queensland trainer Barry Baldwin is toying with the idea of travelling Havatryst to Sydney as an alternative to a start in the upcoming Summer Series.

Baldwin feels the four-year-old gelding may be better suited to a run down south rather than the 1,200 metre George Moore Stakes, which is the first leg of the Series.

“I’ve got my doubts he’s a genuine 1200-metre sprinter and he might find the George Moore field too hot,” Baldwin said.

“I think the longer Summer Stakes and Bernborough Handicaps are right up his alley but there’s not many suitable races around for him before those races.

“He’ll have his next start in the Keith Noud Quality at Eagle Farm on Saturday week and that race will decide what we do with him.

“I’ve looked at a couple of alternatives in Sydney next month but I won’t decide about them until we see how he goes next start.

“He’ll need to run somewhere if he doesn’t run Saturday week so Sydney could still be a possibility.”

Havatryst has won both his previous starts in Brisbane this campaign amongst restricted company over 1,200 metres.

The Foreplay gelding has won five of his 11 career starts and earned more than $175,000 in prize money.
