|In form Kembla Grange trainer
Bede Murray will back up his debut weekend winner Half Hennessy this Saturday in Sydney as
he aims the horse toward the $610,000 Inglis Classic.
Hennessy was very green and despite this still worked home too well to win the
two-year-old race at Kembla Grange on Saturday.
Murray told reporters after the race that the youngster is
very green and should develop into a nice horse in the future.
"He's got plenty of ability, but has only been in work
for seven weeks and was very green on Saturday," Murray said.
The trainer, who's spring carnival was turned upside down
with the Universal Prince saga, is planning on giving the colt a quick back up on
"I've nominated him for Canterbury this Saturday and
will probably run him as he really needs the education if he's to be any real chance in
the Classic," he added.
Murray is hoping that Half Hennessy can improve further in
order for him to win his second Inglis Classic. Cutabove won Murray his first running of
the race in 1999.
Half Hennessy was a $65,000 yearling purchase at the 2001
Inglis Classic Sale in Sydney.
