Given the spruke around this colt I'm surprised there isn't a thread for him yet. Anyway article this is for you djebel.

Surely no way he could run in the Derbies at both Morphetville and Epsom?

Well in a month or two we'll better know whether he's Russian Camelot or just plain Russian Camel.

Djebel mentioned him in the Vow and Declare thread, I read this article earlier and rather than send the V&D thread off course I decided to post it here.

One of the most interesting runners of the day at Flemington tomorrow.

But as an 11/4 favourite over only 1400m, I’ll just watch him from a future perspective.

Sounds like SA Derby 2500m is the main aim, probably via either the Port Adelaide Guineas 1800m or Chairman’s Stks 2000m

I will have a guess SC.

Not being around the horse I bow to the trainer's knowledge of the horse, but he looks to me to be very similar to Vow And Declare aerobic wise so why not get him fit enough to run at, at least 1600m if not 2000m first up.

I thought he was a false favourite today although his run after what happened at the start was good.
Remember, it might take intelligence to be smart , but it takes experience to be wise

Oustanding run.

Hopefully they find a suitable 2000m race in about 3 weeks. Let me have a look.

1800m Port Adelaide Guineas 4th April - 2500m South Australian Derby 9 May - 2400m Epsom Derby 6th June.

Melbourne Cup aspirations perhaps?

After his antics on Saturday, this guy runs tonight in the last race over 1600m at Pakenham.

Can hopefully get his SA Derby campaign back on track.

It was an imperious win last night.

Post race interview with Danny indicated he’d have 1 more run before the SA Derby. Theres a few 3yo races that could be options on Anzac Day - the Chairman’s Stks over 2000m at Morphettville or the Peter Armitage Hcp 1700m at Flemington.

Hopefully they go the Flemington option just so it is a grand final meeting with Dalasan in the Derby.

Be a shame if they met before hand.

O'Brien said last night he might have one more in Victoria. Things are complicated by the quarantine issue Ollie wants the ride but will have to serve 2 weeks before and after and the Derby is in 4 weeks tomorrow, 9th May.

As we have all seen Russian Camelot has not accepted for 3yo race at Sandown on Saturday.

How long would the antibiotics stay in his system ?

Is it a gamble even going to the Derby from that point of view ?

That was arrogant, won it easily on his ear, thoughts on the ride? The colt didn't seem happy going round the first turn, got stuck 3 wide the trip out the back and still blew them away.

Very exciting future for this colt.

And don't forget that he was foaled in Ireland so would have received possibly 4.5 kg if this had been run at WFA.

He has an enormous future.
