No Conspiracy With Ritchie 3YO11 Jun 2018
If there was any “conspiracy” surrounding the Shaune Ritchie trained Conspirator (Swiss Ace), it is now clear for all to see and the three-year-old gelding looks to have a very bright future!
Ritchie has been very ‘bullish’ about the Swiss Ace three-year-old since he entered his Cambridge stable and the gelding vindicated his trainer’s confidence when he easily dispensed with a handy field of maidens in the first race at Te Rapa on Saturday.
Having just his second raceday start, Conspirator was allowed to stride forward from a wide barrier by Troy Harris and although he raced a bit keenly behind the leaders until the turn, he showed a good turn-of-foot to break his maiden. Harris allowed the big striding bay plenty of room as the field straightened and he quickly rolled to the lead, never looking in danger of surrendering his advantage and going on to post an impressive win finishing a length clear of the consistent Snitz of Time (Snitzel) and Shockwave (Shocking).
Conspirator is out of the Zabeel mare Rasiowa (Zabeel) and gives the indication that 2000m and further won’t be a hindrance to him in the future as he matures. Rasiowa – the dam of Conspirator – sold a yearling filly by El Roca to the bid of Phill Cataldo at the most recent sales at Karaka, while the daughter of Zabeel is currently infoal to El Roca.« Back
