Alligator Blood verdict over disqualification from the 2020 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas set to be handed down
Alligator Blood (All Too Hard) is nearing a return to racing in the coming weeks, while the verdict of a legal battle over his disqualification from the 2020 Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (RL, 1400m) is also set to be handed down. “We’ll clear his name,” owner Allan Endresz told Racing.com.
“I’ve been pushing for Al’s name to be cleared before he started racing again, the timing might be spot on, we’re literally waiting on a decision in the Supreme Court in the next week-and-a-half, fingers crossed.” the son of All Too Hard (Casino Prince) has been settling into his new surroundings in Sydney under the watchful eye of Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott and showed up well when second to Minhaaj (Exceed And Excel) in a Randwick trial on Monday.
“He went really well, Tim Clark rode him and along with Gai and Adrian they’re saying he’s well on schedule,” Endresz said. “Minhaaj isn’t a bad horse and there was other Group 1 company, we were really happy especially when he hit the line, he stretched out really nicely.”
Now a five-year-old, Alligator Blood could be targeted at a trip to Melbourne in the search for another Group 1 success. “If he comes out the blocks and starts screaming ‘I’m here to race’, then Gai’s got the opportunity for us to get down to Melbourne,” Endresz said. “We’re talking to Gai about the Doncaster, there’s no reason he can’t.”
