"Reliable Man Duo Primed for VRC Derby3 Nov 2017
The Trent Busuttin & Natalie Young pair of Main Stage and Sully give their sire Reliable Man a strong hand in Saturday’s A$1,500,000 VRC Derby on the opening day of the Flemington Carnival in Melbourne. Main Stage currently shares the second line of favouritism at $7.00 for the Group 1 feature behind the High Chaparral colt Ace High ($6.00), while his stablemate Sully is on the third line of betting at $8.50.
Main Stage (ex Kiri) has built an impressive record at Flemington finishing a close second behind Tavistock Abbey in the VRC Derby Trial before coming from last to win the Listed UCI Stakes over 1800m beating Cliff’s Edge and Johnny Vinko. Main Stage has had one start since the UCI Stakes, finishing third to Cliff’s Edge in the Group 3 Caulfield Classic in what appeared to be a ‘muddling run race’ and best suited to the on-pace runners that day. Returning to headquarters with the big expanses of Flemington are sure to play into Main Stage’s hands and providing there is genuine speed in the race he should be right in the thick of things at the end of the 2500m. Main Stage has had 6 starts for 2 wins, 2 seconds, and 2 thirds and will be reunited with Michael Walker who was serving a suspension when he last ran.
Stablemate Sully (ex Lady Winifred) is also among the best backed runners for the blue riband feature on Saturday and the announcement that Hugh Bowman will take the mount only adds further confidence for those who believed he was a serious contender after his Group 1 placing to Ace High in the Spring Champion Stakes at Randwick last month. Like Main Stage, Sully is has raced on six occasions, resulting in 2 wins, a second, 2 thirds, and a fourth; and including his placing in the Spring Champion Stakes behind tomorrow’s rivals Ace High and Tangled and a close up fourth in the Group 3 Gloaming Stakes.
Sully has not run since the Spring Champion Stakes and will bring a fresh set of legs into the Derby.
Reliable Man – the sire of Main Stage and Sully – was also a Derby winner during his racing career, winning the French equivalent the Prix du Jockey Club Gr.1 over 2100m at just his third start – while his sire Dalakhani also took out the Prix du Jockey Club Gr.1, as well as the Irish Derby Gr.1 and the Prix de Arc de l’Arc de Triomphe Gr.1, while Dalakhani’s sire Shirley Heights won both the English & Irish Derby, and his sire Mill Reef was a Champion 3YO winning both the English Derby and Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe Gr.1 in his three-year-old year. The fact that Reliable Man is out of a Sadler’s Wells mare provides further confidence that his stock will not have any issue with the 2500m of tomorrow’s Derby."
