03/01/02 Big Interstate Interest in Tasmanian Features
Many of the country's leading trainers and some of the nation's most promising gallopers are among the entries for the feature races in Tasmania which will be run over the next two months.

Lee Freedman, Gai Waterhouse, Colin Alderson, Bill Mitchell, Gerald Ryan, Rick Hore-Lacy, Robert Smerdon, John Hawkes, Alan Bailey, Peter Moody, Roger James, Russell Cameron and Michael Moroney are among the leading interstate trainers who are all indicating they will be represented at the carnival.

The $200,000 AAMI Hobart Cup, a Group Three race over 2400 metres, has attracted some 69 early entries. The race will be run at Hobart on Monday February 11.

Among the gallopers entered are last start Adelaide Group winner Astrolante, impressive last start Caulfield winner Mr Casanova and the promising Piper Star.

The $150,000 Cadbury Tasmanian Derby (2400m) to be run at Hobart on Saturday February 9 has 58 entries.

Among them include Belgrade, Bites, Carnegie Express, Our Bullbaa, Regent Street, Sherator, Sirspec and The Creature.

Meanwhile, trainer Peter Tulloch has aborted plans for his capable stayer Big Pat to head to Tasmania for the Hobart Cup after a disappointing effort in the Bagot Handicap at Flemington on Tuesday.

Tulloch will spell the horse for a month before ultimately setting him for the Adelaide Cup Carnival, where he shot to prominence by winning the SA Derby last May. Big Pat is being aimed at the Adelaide Cup over 3200 metres.
