There is excitement in the air at Larneuk Stud and at the Cranbourne stables of Greg Eurell with the exciting three-year-old O’Tauto nominated for the inaugural running of the rich All Star Mile to be run at Flemington on March 16.
The world’s richest 1600m race has attracted a hot field of nominations with the final field to be based on the public’s vote… and O’Tauto’s connections are hoping that those with a keen eye for an up-and-comer will have him foremost in their minds!
In great shape following a brief freshen-up on the back of his dominant Flemington victory on January 12, O’Tauto is embarking on an ambitious autumn carnival campaign but connections are confident that their young and still lightly raced gelding can measure right up.
O’Tauto is a great local hope for a great new Victorian race… bred, trained and owned here! He isn’t a blueblood, he isn’t owned by Sheikhs, he isn’t already at the top of his game; he is young, keen and rearing to go!
