Adapting to a racetrack for the first time should be the least of the problems for Life Less Ordinary

Adapting to a racetrack for the first time should be the least of the problems for Life Less Ordinary who is the forgotten horse of the Group One Doomben Cup.

The former English stayer will be having a start on a 19th different track in the Doomben Cup (2000m) on Saturday.

Life Less Ordinary is one of six runners from leading trainer Chris Waller’s stable.

While the other five are heading into the Cup via last-start runs in the Hollindale Stakes at the Gold Coast, Life Less Ordinary is coming off a runaway win in the Wagga Cup.

The Wagga Cup win fulfilled a dream for his owner Richard Pegum who has made a habit of winning with European imports.

Life Less Ordinary had his first start in the UK at Wolverhampton in October 2014 and his last English run at Ascot in September 2016.

He won four races in England and has added a further three wins since arriving in Australia two years ago.

Life Less Ordinary will be running in his fourth Australian state on Saturday and in his second Group One race after failing in the Kingston Town Stakes in Perth last year.

Waller’s Queensland stable foreman Paul Shailer said Life Less Ordinary could be the surprise packet in the Doomben Cup.

“He is a seasoned traveller and his win in the Wagga Cup was dominant. It is weight for age on Saturday but he is a good tough horse,” Shailer said.

Multiple Group One-winning New Zealand jockey Opie Bosson returns to Brisbane to ride Life Less Ordinary.

Bosson has a long association with Waller having ridden the champion trainer’s first Australian winner, Party Belle, at Wyong in 1998.
