Fly Junior preps Saturday for Sian's Gold Sprint

FLY JUNIOR, who smashed the 1,100 metres track record on November 3 in a new time of 1:02.21, will be using Saturday's seventh race, the 1,100-metre race for horses rated 90-70 on the turf, as his prep for the 1,100-metre Sian's Gold Sprint on January 1 on the Santa Rosa Park turf.

The Maniram "Boboy" Maharaj-trained three-year-old importation comes up against fellow importation King Whistler who finished sixth to Bruceontheloose in the Stewards Cup on December 1.

Also entered in the nine-horse event is game creole Skyline Pigeon, along with Believe It Or Not and recent winner, Intact.

And the West Indian-bred two-year-olds who are in desperate need of points to gain eligibility for the St Ann's Stakes (fillies) and the St James Stakes (colts and geldings), will use Saturday's second race over 1,000 metres as their final outing heading into the divisional races. Among the considered runners in the nine-horse line-up is Right To Rule, who was pipped by Hannah's Champion for third behind Central Square on December 1.
