Wyong trainer Stephen Farley wishes he had a stable full of horses like his quality stayer Gazza Guru.
Resuming at Rosehill Gardens tomorrow in the Benchmark 95 over 1400-metres, Gazza Guru has been a revelation since joining Farley’s stable.
Formerly a member of the Lee Freedman stable, Gazza Guru was sold to clients of Farley as a tried horse for just $30,000 and since then he’s won almost $250,000.
“He’s been great for us – I’d love a few more like him,” Farley told racingnetwork today.
"He got beaten a head and a head in the Newcastle Cup two years ago with Green Moon winning it, and he’s won the Melbourne Cup since, and he ran third to Glencadam Gold last year and second in the Wyong Cup as well,” Farley said.
“We love him.”
Gazza Guru normally takes a run or two before hitting his best form so tomorrow’s 1400-metre race might be too short for him.
“He does normally take a run but he’ll run well all the same as he’s in very good order,” Farley said.
Farley has booked 3kg apprentice Shaun Guymer to partner Gazza Guru tomorrow from barrier 12 – the outside gate.
