Keep The Autumn Sun on your radar

The Autumn Sun is currently spelling ahead of his autumn campaign but keep the star colt on your radar because there's plenty to get enthused about.

Oliver Koolman, manager of part-owners Hermitage Thoroughbreds has some intriguing races to consider for the top level performer and the tantalising prospect of taking on Winx is one. 

While it would be fascinating to see The Autumn Sun take on the champion mare in the new $5 million All Star Mile at Flemington it now seems the three times group 1 winner is more likely heading towards the Randwick Guineas on March 9th, one week before All Star Mile.

Koolman admits he is not in any hurry to take on Winx, but must be applauded for sticking to a traditional path which could include the George Ryder Stakes and the Queen Elizabeth Stake and a possible clash with Winx.

“The only race that we’ve all sort of discussed, and everyone seems to agree on, it falls in the right place, is the Randwick Guineas,” Koolman said. “It launches itself towards a possible Queen Elizabeth Stakes or even shortening back up again (in distance).
