Jerilderie Letter to embark on interstate campaign

Feb 28, 2017

Last year’s Tasmanian Derby winner Jerilderie Letter is likely to have his next start at Flemington on Saturday in a benchmark 84 handicap over 1600 metres.

The Adam Trinder-trained four year old was an eye-catching second to Hellova Street in the $100,000 Luxbet Mowbray Stakes over 1600 metres at the Luxbet Racing Centre in Launceston last week.

“I was very impressed with my horse’s effort in the Mowbray Stakes and I think he’s ready for another interstate campaign,” Trinder said.

“I nominated him for the Cranbourne Cup (1800m) on Friday night and the race at Flemington on Saturday and I am swaying towards the Flemington race that looks more suitable.

“The horse has done well since his last run and I guess the only query is the 10-day back-up but the horse is telling me that he has fully recovered.”

Jerilderie Letter is handicapped to carry 60 kilograms at Flemington and while Trinder has yet to finalise a rider he is hoping to secure the services of Steven Arnold as it is a non-claiming race.

“Steven (Arnold) has a commitment to another horse that has been nominated but it is not certain to start so I’ll keep my options open until after final acceptances tomorrow (Wednesday at 9am).

Jerilderie Letter campaigned in Melbourne after he won last year’s Tasmanian Derby and he was very competitive without winning but this time he heads across the water more seasoned and with form that is on the improve.
