Broadside Armour Returns To Racing At Warwick Farm


3yo Helmet gelding, Broadside Armour, returns from a spell this week over 1300m at Warwick Farm in a big field with Brenton Avdulla steering him round.

The leggy 3yo has had 2 quiet trials leading into Wednesday's event and from barrier 10 he will most likely find himself in the middle of the ruck somewhere in the run. With one corner at Warwick Farm to content with amongst a field of 18 runners it will be like trying to navigate your way in a car around the Arc De Triomphe roundabout.


Broadside Armour is lightly raced having only had the one career start (at Warwick Farm) for a win over 1400m back in January. The form is a little suspect with only 1 winner coming out of the race, but Broadside Armour looks like a horse who will get up over ground in the future and this will be a good starting point for his preparation.

John O'Shea his trainer is happy with the progress the horse has made over the break and is keen to see him back at the races this time in. "He is a work in progress this bloke. He has been a raw immature horse his whole career and when he fully matures we hope he is a miler to 2000m conveyance that can go through his grades and give his owners a wonderful racing experience. His family is strong on the female line, with him being a half to a stakes winner, but I did notice much of the form is later maturing form, so we have been patient with him and hopefully this patience is repaid at some point". O'Shea commented from his Randwick base.

We look forward to seeing Broadside Armour compete well on Wednesday and then we can start to see him hit his straps as the distances stretch out. Good luck to all his owners who will be eagerly watching his return at 3.10pm this Wednesday afternoon.
