Australian Racing - Racing: Warrior primed for Caulfield test

Rosemont Stud earlier this week announced that Extreme Warrior would join their roster for the coming breeding season, but he has some important assignments on the racetrack before then in a bid to maximise his stud value.

That begins on Saturday with the Bel Esprit Stakes at Caulfield, for which the son of Extreme Choice has been installed as the 19/20 favourite.

Older test

Jamie Kah's mount will carry just 54kg for the Caulfield contest when tackling older horses barring one, with Damian Lane's mount General Beau also three years old and priced at 7/1 to win, while Extreme Warrior will be running from stall nine.

Co-trainer Mick Price revealed on Friday that the three-year-old is in prime condition to claim further black type, having won the Blue Sapphire Stakes in October, while he has overcome a throat ulcer that had hampered him in the early part of the autumn carnival.

"He's a good colt, we've had some nice horses here and he's certainly one of them. He works good, trials good and is nice and full of himself," Price told Racing Pulse, as per RSN.

Big targets ahead

"I know there's pressure for these colts to go to stud especially being a son of Extreme Choice but he's going really well and it looks like a nice race for him."

Price will target Extreme Warrior at Group 1 features in Queensland down the line, should he offer a good showing in today’s Listed sprint, in which he takes on 11 rivals.
