Gem Song to be spelled for the spring

Group One winning trainer Kris Lees announced late on Wednesday that promising three-year-old colt Gem Song will be spelled immediately to concentrate on a spring campaign.

The multiple Group-winning son of Your Song began his Brisbane Winter Carnival campaign on a winning note by taking out the Group Three Gunsynd Classic (1600m) for three-year-olds in fine style, beating home Starkers and Belle Roc by more than two lengths.

Lees then sent him around in the Listed Members’ Handicap (1600m) where he finished a close-up third behind Archedemus and Tom Melbourne.

Last weekend, he finished just behind the placegetters in the Group One Doomben Cup over the longer 2000m trip. 

Despite being nominated for the Group One Stradbroke Handicap and Group One Queensland Derby, Lees has decided to spell the gelding and work on a preparation for a spring carnival campaign. 

Lees will now focus on this weekend’s meeting at Eagle Farm where he has a float full of runners engaged, including Fuji Fury who is a $26 chance with Ladbrokes in the Group Three Grand Prix Stakes (2200m) and Princess Posh who will run in the Group One Kingsford-Smith Cup (1300m) and is currently at $81 with Beteasy.
