HAVING made a successful cameo appearance, outstanding young trotter Wobelee is heading back to the paddock.
Returning for a two start campaign, Wobelee will be kept fresh before being primed for a host of majors later in the season.
Trainer Alison Alford revealed her plans for the three-year-old following his Need For Speed Prince Final success at Tabcorp Park Melton tonight.
“He’ll go back out for a break now, as there isn’t much on for another couple of months,” Alford said. “At this stage he will have at least a fortnight off before we start all over again.”
Along with the New South Wales Trotters’ Derby in May, Wobelee’s schedule is likely to include The Holmfield, Vicbred Super Series, Victoria Trotters’ Derby and Breeders’ Crown.
“There are plenty of options for him, beginning with the Derby at Menangle in mid May,” Alford said. “After that we’ll take aim at each of the majors and make firm decisions depending how he is going at the time.”
As for his latest win, Wobelee led throughout from the pole to account for Meziah and La Grange in 1:58.4 over 1720 metres with Alford’s husband, Chris in the cart.
Owned by Colin Murphy, the gelding stretched his record to an impeccable 12 wins and two placings from 14 starts for earnings of $216,330.
