Chase The Rainbow Targets Doncaster Mile 2014

November 26th, 2013

Chase The Rainbow has his heart set on the Group 1 Doncaster Mile 2014 at Royal Randwick Racecourse next Autumn.

The five-year-old has not had a run since September 1, 2012, and has been plagued with injuries and ailments throughout his horse racing career.

Chase The Rainbow has won four of his seven race starts and has earned more than $250,000 in prize money during his horse racing career.

Trainer Rick Hore-Lacyshed some light on Chase The Rainbow’s issues.

“He has had his problems; suspensory ligament, we have had problems with his feet and at one stage he had a crack in his shoulder,” Hore-Lacy said.

“I think if he was going to break down again yesterday would have been the day.

“He has come through that perfectly well and he walks out of his box sound every morning, which he hasn’t done for ages.”

Chase The Rainbow will next run in the Listed Doveton Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday December 7, 2013.

“It is all go for the Doveton Stakes on Saturday week at Caulfield,” Hore-Lacy said.

“It is a $120,000 race, it is an ordinary Saturday race really, but it looks a good race to start him off.”

While it’s high on his list for next autumn, Hore-Lacy understands a run in the 2013 Doncaster Handicap would be a big ask.

“The long range plan is the Doncaster but every man and his dog will be going for that,” Hore-Lacy said.

“They put it up a million dollars and it has got to the stage now, with the imports that it is spot the Aussie where you can.

“Chase The Rainbow to even get a run in the Doncaster would have to win a couple more races.

“If it is going to be half-full with imports you are going to have to have a pretty good horse just to get in the race.

“We will try and win a couple of races with him and if the Doncaster is still a couple of months away you would put him out in the paddock for a couple of weeks.”
