Australian Racing - Racing: Sargent eyeing Randwick glory

John Sargent is set to saddle two runners when the trainer goes in search of further Oaks glory in Saturday's Group 1 ATC Oaks at Randwick.

Pink Ivory is rated an 11/2 chance following her fifth in the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes at Newcastle on 28th March while stablemate Gin Martini can be backed at 50/1 after finishing four places further back that day. You can follow the action via our Sports Live Streaming service.

Sargent, who won the ATC Oaks with Gust Of Wind in 2015 when she became the final horse to ever beat Winx before the star mare went on her 33-strong winning spree, said he was looking forward to Pink Ivory getting out to the longer trip.

Sargent opens up on Pink Ivory

"She's come through that run well and I think out to that maximum distance should really suit her," he told

"If she could land a draw she can position up a lot handier. James (McDonald) will come and give her some work Tuesday and then we're set for the Oaks."

On the chances of Gin Martini the trainer said: "She got in the worst of the going last time but she doesn't mind it rain affected and it's a different story when they get out to 2400 metres, so it'll be interesting to see how she goes."

As well as his victory with Gust Of Wind, Sargent also trained Miss Mossman to win the 2014 NZ Oaks and in 2012 Quintessential won the Queensland Oaks. In between, Kirramosa won the 2013 VRC Oaks for him at Flemington.
