Despite being in charge of Australia’s biggest and arguably best racing stable John O’Shea has come out and given a massive rap for one of his horses who races on Derby Day.
O’Shea this morning said that his Coolmore Stud Stakes runner Astern was the best horse he has ever trained saying “He’s got a bunch of ability.” which may be a bit of an understatement.
Golden Rose winner Astern will have to beat a quality group of sprinters in the Coolmore Stud Stakes where he is an easing second favourite at $4.00.
Godolphin will also saddle up Melbourne Cup favourite Hartnell in Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup.
John O’Shea reiterated this morning that Astern is the best horse he has trained. Fair comment. Why? “He’s got a bunch of ability.” @Racing
