He has done nothing wrong since being gelded. His recent runs have been top class and this will be his first big test. He is very well and I am very hopeful. – Brett Crawford
Greg Cheyne sounded really enthusiastic about his chance on Whisky Baron:
”Since being gelded he is improving all the time and this race will show us just how good he is” – Greg Cheyne
When asked who his dangers were he said Legal Eagle was the obvious horse but he said he thought Gold Standard was a good 3 year old.
