Multiple Group 1 winning sprinter Malaguerra and his Group 2 winning stablemate Illustrious Lad will have their first hit out of the Spring at Cranbourne this Monday.
Malaguerra won the Group 1 Darley Classic last spring narrowly in front of the fast finishing Spieth. He has an outstanding first up record and looks likely to return in the Moir Stakes on Grand Final Eve at Moonee Valley.
Illustrious Lad was unlucky in the Lighnting Stakes first up in the Autumn this year and was a little disappointing for the rest of the prep. A very consistent performer that'll be looking to break his Group 1 duck this preparation.
The two sprinters join the talented 3 year old Levendi for the Gelagotis spring assault. Levendi returned for solid first up victory today at Mornington with the next stop being the Caulfield Guineas Prelude on October 1.
