Old North was winner over 2000m during the 2016 Sydney Autumn Carnival when he won the Group 2 $175,000 Tulloch Stakes at Rosehill but Godolphin said on twitter today that the Lonhro colt would be set for either the Epsom Handicap or the Toorak Handicap, both run over 1600m.

“Old North has returned to training in great condition and will be aimed at either the Epsom Handicap or Toorak Handicap,” Godolphin tweeted.

The Group 1 $1m Epsom Handicap (1600m) will be run at Randwick on October 1 while the Group 1 $500,000 Toorak Handicap (1600m) will be decided at Caulfield a week later.

Trainer John O’Shea brought Old North up through the grades after he broke his maiden status at Randwick over 1400m on new year’s day this year and made it two wins on the trot when he took out a 1400m BenchMark 67 Handicap on March 2.

Old North was then given his chance against better company and was sent out as the favourite before finishing fourth in the Group 2 $175,000 Cellarbrations Phar Lap Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill on March 12.

Old North was then back in the winner’s stall in the Tulloch Stakes before finishing second to He’s Our Rokkii in the Group 3 $150,000 Frank Packer Plate (2000m) at Randwick on April 16.

O’Shea then headed to Queensland where Old North had one more run before heading for a spell and finished fourth to Leebaz in the Group 2 $358,000 All-New Jaguar F-Pace A.D. Hollindale Stakes (1800m) at the Gold Coast on May 7.

Old North is a winner of three races from eight starts and has earned $230,665 prizemoney under the royal blue colours of Godolphin.
