Feehan return for gavelhouse.com graduate Surprise Baby

Surprise Baby as an unraced three-year-oldAdelaide Cup (Gr 2, 3200m) winner and $5,500 gavelhouse.com buy Surprise Baby (Shocking) will attempt to put himself in the mix as one of Australia’s best credentialed Melbourne Cup (Gr 1, 3200m) contenders when he resumes at Moonee Valley on Saturday.

The Paul Preusker-trained five-year-old, who has won four of his eight starts, runs first-up in the Dato’ Tan Chin Nam Stakes (registered as John F Feehan Stakes) (Gr 2, 1600m) having not raced since finishing a narrow second in the Andrew Ramsden Stakes (Listed, 2800m).

“He returned earlier than I expected to be honest. “He’s good to go, a nice sharp mile will be spot on for him and, while we don’t want to give him too hard a run, it’ll be a good chance for him to have a nice blowout,” Horsham-based Preusker told Racing.com.

“His work has been good and I was very happy with his jumpout at Stawell last week so it’s exciting to have him back at the races.” – ANZ Bloodstock News
