Blue Sky's Caulfield Contenders

As we head into what is the best day of racing we have seen so far this year, Blue Sky Bloodstock will be represented by three-year-old Manhattan Rain filly BOUNDARY in the Group Two Angus Armanasco Stakes and two-year-old BENETEAU colt PROMPT RETURN in the Group One Blue Diamond Stakes.

The third race on the card will see the Blue Sky Bloodstock purchased BOUNDARY (pictured below) jump away from barrier three, with leading jockey Craig Williams in the saddle.

A winner of two of her six starts to date, as well as never finishing out of the top five, the Magic Millions Yearling Sale graduate is raced by Newhaven Park, V O C Racing, Mr R K Hamer, Blue Sky Bloodstock, Mr N A Mukhi, Mr M Rava, Mr J A Lee and Mr S C Waugh.

A winner two stars back over the distance of Saturday’s race, the Heath Conners-trained does actually have good form over the 1400m, with a win and a solid third, so a forward showing is not out of the question.

The main race of the day for the juveniles, the Group One Blue Diamond Stakes over 1200m, sees the Blue Sky Bloodstock purchased PROMPT RETURN (pictured above) look to avenge the defeat of his sire Beneteau who finished a narrow third in the 2010 running of the race behind Star Witness.

Prompt Return was slightly disappointing last time out when he finished fifth behind Thurlow in the Group 3 Chairman’s Stakes, but every horses is allowed an off day, and fingers cross that was his and we will see the best of the colt on Saturday.

Set to jump away from barrier 7 with James Winks in the saddle, the Danny O'Brien-trained colt has been somewhat the forgotten horse in the field, but with his natural speed to put himself into a winning position during the run we wish his connections Mr Mark Sowerby and Mr Ron K Hamer the best of luck!
