    CONNECTIONS of talented trotter Constantinople have set their sights on short and long term key targets.

    Winner of the unofficial Trotters’ Inter Dominion Consolation at Albion Park last December, Constantinople will be worked towards another crack at the series later this year.

    Although a Pacers’ Consolation was conducted, squaregaiters which didn’t make the Final contested a $30,000 Free-For-All on Finals night.

    With the 2024 Championship to be staged at Club Menangle – Constantinople’s home track – a pathway is already being mapped.

    That schedule includes The Hammerhead in Menangle on March 9, with the $100,000 feature part of the stellar Miracle Mile program.

    As a “warm up”, Constantinople will be back in action around the world class venue on Saturday night.

    Triumphant over a mile last weekend, the Luke McCarthy-trained gelding is the widest drawn of eight starters.

    “He’d only had 22 starts before the Inter Dominion, so he did a good job given how lightly-raced he is,” co-owner Jerry Glavas said. “He held his own at the highest level.

    “He had a short freshen-up after Brisbane and cost himself at his first run back when he paced and broke, but showed his best last week.

    “Unfortunately he hasn’t drawn the best on Saturday night, but he is good enough to be right in the finish.

    “Hopefully he can do enough to get in the big one in a few weeks, and then with another year’s racing experience, will be ready for another shot at the Inter Dominion.”
