Burradoo aiming for hat trick of wins at Wagga

Thursday, July 5, 2018

It’s been a disrupted campaign, but the Mick Miladinovic-trained Burradoo will be looking for a hat trick of wins in the feature event at Wagga on Tuesday.

Burradoo will contest the $20,000 Wagga Guineas Prelude (1400 metres) and a win would guarantee a start in the $40,000 Wagga Guineas (1600 metres) 10 days later.

The three-year-old has not finished outside the top two in his last five efforts and broke his maiden status in emphatic style two starts back at the Sapphire Coast over 1200 metres.

Miladinovic then intended on stepping Burradoo up to the 1400-metres at Orange, but the meeting was abandoned. He was forced to enter him at Nowra over an unfavourably short 1000-metre trip in a class 2 handicap.

Burradoo missed the start in the soft going at Nowra and trailed the field onto the straight, but the son of Zariz was still too strong.

“He was much improved from that Sapphire [Coast] win, judging from what he did at Nowra,” Miladinovic said. “He was racing very green before his first win and not finishing off, but we’ve taught him how to do that now.

“He wasn’t really putting much effort into it, even when he was finishing second. He just wasn’t finishing it off. He wasn’t fully extending out and pushing himself.”

Adrian Layt will ride Burradoo from barrier 11 on Tuesday, having been in the saddle for his past two wins.

“He’s looking for the 1400 [metres],” Miladinovic said. “I know we’re backing him up seven days later, but he’s pulled up so well and hasn’t missed a beat.

“Obviously the wide draw is a bit of a concern as you don’t wanna get him stuck out there, but you can get this horse going and you can get him back. He’s very relaxed. He’s one of those horses that you can put wherever you want, and he’ll do what you want.”
