PLANS remain uncertain with Rackemup Tigerpie despite his success in last night’s Always B Miki Graduate at Tabcorp Park Melton last night.
With the youngster ineligible for the upcoming Breeders’ Crown, trainer Ian Stanley is yet to decide on the next target for the son of Rock N Roll Heaven.
In fact, Rackemup Tigerpie may find himself in a paddock.
“I have no idea what I will do with him next,” Stanley said. “I hadn’t looked past this race.
“I’ll give him a couple of easy days then have a look at the program.
“He’s not in the Breeders’ Crown, so I’m not sure what else is around. He may even go to the paddock.”
Driven by Stanley’s son, Michael, Rackemup Tigerpie began well from barrier four to gain the perfect one-one trail as Tam Major worked to the lead.
Angled into the passing lane at the top of the home straight, Rackemup Tigerpie sprinted to a metre-and-a-half win from Tam Major, with Yankee Lincoln a short half-head away third.
“I gave him a chance of being competitive if he got the right luck, but I didn’t go there expecting to win,” Stanley said. “His form has been good apart from run at Kilmore and that was because the race was run upside down as oppose to him going badly.
“I was hoping for top four finish and am thrilled he came away with the win.”
Bred and owned by Stanley, the three-year-old’s record sits on four wins and fours placings from 18 starts for earnings of $24,140.
