Epaulette Heads Towards 2013 Stradbroke Handicap

May 28th, 2013

Epaulette has been confirmed as a starter in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap on June 8, 2013.

The three-year-old turned heads when he won the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 at Doomben Racecourse last weekend, and he will continue his Brisbane Winter campaign two weeks later in the 2013 Stradbroke Handicap.

Epaulette has won five of his 11 race starts and has earned more than $1.69 million in prize money during his horse racing career.

The Commands colt was initially not confirmed for the 2013 Stradbroke Handicap after being allocated a hefty weight of 56 kilograms.

Darley’s Australian representative Henry Plumptre, revealed that Epaulette could in fact continue on to the July Cup at Newmarket.

“Future plans are a bit up in the air at the moment, he could be sent to stud sometime after the Stradbroke or even go to the July Cup,” Plumptre said.

“If he goes to England he would need an inoculation later this week. But he will still be racing in the Stradbroke.

“Only about one in 10 horses get knocked around by an inoculation and we would be hoping he wouldn’t be one of those.”

Epaulette will be looking to post his third Group 1 win when he lines up for the 2013 Stradbroke Handicap.
