Australian Racing: O'Shea opts for Canterbury Stakes

John O'Shea will chase Group 1 glory in the Canterbury Stakes in Sydney rather than head to Melbourne with Lost And Running, following his win in Saturday's Group 3 Southern Cross Stakes at Randwick.

The son of Per Incanto was a dominant winner of the 1200 metres contest, beating last-start Group 2 winner Overpass by a comfortable two lengths, which saw Lost And Running propelled to 5/4 favourite for the Canterbury Stakes at Randwick on March 6th.

"I'm very happy with the way he went," O'Shea said on Sunday. "He pulled up well, so it's a good start to the campaign.

"He's matured a bit and really learned his craft as we've gone along steadily with him," O'Shea added. "He's starting to develop into a really nice sprinter."

Lost And Running takes second Stakes win

Saturday's victory took Lost And Running's career tally to eight wins from 13 starts, while it was his second victory at Stakes level, having previously taken out the Luskin Star Stakes (Listed, 1300m) last year.

O'Shea also confirmed that the $15 million Everest, which Lost And Running finished fourth in last year, would be the main target for the five-year-old.
