A minor setback after winning his Maiden may help exciting three-year-old Hosting become the star three-year-old of the autumn.
And that’s some call considering All Too Hard, Pierro, It’s A Dundeel and Commanding Jewel already have some serious runs on the board
Trainer Greg Eurell says the setback after his ultra-impressive Maiden win at Mornington on August 30 may be the best thing that ever happened to him.
“It could turn out to be a real blessing, having to give him a break then.
"He hasn’t beaten his head against the top three-year-olds in the Spring and he could turn out to be the fresh three-year-old.
"I’ve got a very good opinion of this horse – I think he can go a long way,” Eurell told racingnetwork today.
“He over-stretched his joint and we had to put him aside after he won his Maiden at Mornington.
"We rate this horse very highly – gee I like him,” he added.
“He could really benefit from not racing in the Spring. A race like the Australian Guineas would be ideal then he can go to Sydney for some good races up there,” Eurell said.
Hosting has only raced once for a stunning come from behind three and a half length win in a 1200-metre Maiden on August 30, and Eurell has been singing his praises ever since.
The son of Host has been back in work for two weeks.
