Group One targets a coin flip for Eduardo

  • Lightning Stakes or Oakleigh Plate for Eduardo?

Trainer Sarah Zschoke has nominated her star sprinter Eduardo for the Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes (1000m) on Saturday at Flemington but is undecided whether the five-year-old will take his place. 

Zschoke spoke to Michael Felgate on RSN 927’s Racing Pulse on Tuesday morning, saying It’s still a coin flip between the Lightning Stakes and Oakleigh Plate. 

“I’ve nominated Eduardo for the Lightning, keeping in mind we still may go to the Oakleigh Plate (1100m) being that we’ll get in with a nice light weight, I’m leaning towards that.” Zschoke said.
 “I’m still actually undecided whether to go to the Lightning or not. At the moment it’s a bit up in the air. 
 “It’s a decision, I’m obviously going to have to hurry up and make my mind up. I do like the light weight in the Oakleigh (Plate). He’ll only get 52 or 53kg.  
“I’m actually quite an indecisive person, I can be last minute as well. At the moment I really don’t know, I might just flip a coin.”

The lightly-raced five-year-old has only had five career start and Zschoke is now being rewarded for her patience with Eduardo. His trial at Cranbourne last Monday was outstanding and Zschoke said “He’s working well, he’s a million dollars. He trialled up brilliantly the other day.”

Eduardo is currently $12 for the Black Caviar Lightning Stakes with Ladbrokes and $7.50 for the Oakleigh Plate with Sportsbet
