01/06/02 Future Cups the Target for Badger
r5badger'swood.jpg (13190 bytes)While the connections of the Cliff Brown trained The A Train continue their celebrations after winning last month’s Adelaide Cup at Morphettville, Bill Wilde the trainer of Badger’s Wood unveiled plans to aim his very much in form gelding at the event next year.

Warrnambool based Wilde feels Badger’s Wood would be suited at a race like his hometown Cup and the South Australian feature next autumn. But before then he will continue to race on during the winter months in Melbourne.

"We’ll look at similar sorts of races with him around Melbourne first," Wilde said.

A son of the Victoria Derby winner Blevic, Badger’s Wood made it consecutive Saturday victories after winning last Saturday at Moonee Valley.

"He’s a very honest horse and now he’s really come to the fore," Wilde added.

Badger's Wood enjoyed a good run just off the pace in today's race before powering home in great style to grab Lexitaw who made all of the running after moving to the front with about 1400 metres to run.

The win also gave leading local apprentice Reece Wheeler a race to race double after success in the previous event aboard the Alan Bailey trained filly Speaker.

PICS - Quentin Lang.
