BAKER GETS THE WIN HE WANTED: A DOUBLE FOR HARRISON: DIAMOND EFFORT EYES AN INTERSTATE RUN

By Scott Gooley | Wednesday, March 27, 2019

PROMISING GREEN AEON EARNS SHOT AT STAKES RACE

Trainer Bjorn Baker wanted to see Green Aeon back up his impressive debut win today at Warwick Farm before entertaining the idea of tackling stakes company.

“He’d had to win and win well to warrant heading there (South Pacific Stakes),” Baker said prior to Green Aeon lining up in today’s BM 70 (1200m).

Win impressively he did – recording a comfortable three length victory on the Heavy 8 surface, leading all the way.

“He’s a bit of a natural,” was how Baker described the son of Snitzel.

The South Pacific Stakes (1400m) is held at Randwick on the 13th April.

Baker’s second winner came in the following race with Echo Jet who was just as impressive. Echo Jet was resuming from a spell that last saw the Hinchinbrook gelding race on the 6th January 2018.

Camping on the speed he staved off a wall of challengers to record a half-length win, his third from only seven starts.

SMALLER NUMBERS NO PROBLEM FOR HARRISON AT SANDOWN

Trainer Doug Harrison’s team may now only number a dozen, but it was a case of quality over quantity at today’s Sandown meeting with the Cranbourne-based trainer preparing a winning double.

Judge O’reilly and Search Squad made it a running double for Harrison in races two and three respectively, with both gallopers being steered to victory by his nephew, Craig Williams.

“There’s not a lot of horses there (in the stables) so hopefully people will come knocking,” Harrison said of potential new owners after today’s results.

Harrison, who most notable winners include Tudor (Chester Manifold) and Natural Blitz (Tulloch Stakes, Dato Tan Chin Nam, Eagle Farm Cup), has now prepared four winners from his last ten starts.

DIAMOND EFFORT EARNS INTERSTATE TRIP

Later in the day 3yo filly Diamond Effort earned herself an interstate trip with a comfortable victory in the Class 1 (1200m).

Backing up from an impressive maiden win at her previous start, Diamond Effort gave those who took the short odds little cause for concern during the run, leading all the way to record a 2.5 length victory in a time of 1:11.14.

“There’s the Echuca Stakes at Morphettville but there could even be a race in Sydney,” trainer Clint McDonald contemplated after the win.
