08/08/02 Exciting Adelaide Galloper Resumes Saturday

4greatglenwins.jpg (15990 bytes)

Boom Adelaide youngster Great Glen is the star attraction at the local meeting at Morphettville on Saturday as he attempts to extend his unbeaten run to three.

A member of the powerful Morphettville based Leon Macdonald stable, Great Glen is a last start winner of the Group Two Breeders' Stakes when he held out the John Hawkes trained Yell.

The runner-up from that race went on to edge out the previously unbeaten boom Melbourne filly Innovation Girl before thrashing a stakes field in Brisbane.

Great Glen's win in the Breeders' came just five days after he thrashed a field of Maidens at the provincial track of Murray Bridge.

The just turned three-year-old is part owned by Des Pope, a man who's runners are firing through the deeds of Rubitano and Innovation Girl, just to name two.

Pope is not surprisingly excited about the upcoming spring carnival and he is hoping the third member of the fabulous three resumes a winner in Adelaide.

"It's going to be interesting on Saturday," Pope said. "Great Glen is having his first start this preparation and hopefully he can continue in the same way that he went out (for a spell)."

Connections of Great Glen are planning on aiming the gelding at one of early feature races of the Melbourne Spring Carnival.

"All going well after his run in Adelaide, then he will be sent here for the (Group Two) Ascot Vale Stakes," Macdonald's Melbourne foreman Andrew Noblet said recently.

The Macdonald stable is looking forward to another lucrative spring carnival with other stable representatives Li Lo Lill and Eagle Rhythm being targeted at the feature staying events, while many feel the bonny mare Shaye Spice is well up to some of the feature sprints.
