TRUST In A Gust will not be heading to stud this year and will be back racing in the spring.

There was conjecture whether Trust in A Gust would continue racing after the minor injury that has forced him to miss the rich Brisbane sprints.

Swettenham Stud’s owner Adam Sangster was reluctant to send Trust in A Gust to stud this year as there are a number of first-season stallions and he wanted him to race on.

The Darren Weir stable on Thursday tweeted that the four-year-old would have a six-week spell and be brought back for weight-for-age races in the spring.

$4250 a start for $4m colt

AUSTRALIA’S most expensive living yearling purchase, Emaratee, made the first indent into his $4 million price with a cheque of $4250 for his second at Gosford yesterday.

Jockey Tommy Berry was happy with the three-year-old colt’s debut.

Emaratee, who started at $7 in the seven-horse 1100m maiden, shared the lead with odds-on favourite Spill The Beans, who went on to win by two lengths.

In contrast to the John Hawkes-trained Emaratee, two-year-old Spill The Beans didn’t attract a bid when he went through the ring last year because of issues with his X-rays. Spill The Beans gave trainer Gerald Ryan another winner by Snitzel.

Velocity short in Singapore

HONG Kong’s latest sprint star, Aerovelocity, is $1.70 with TAB to win Sunday night’s KrisFlyer International Sprint at Kranji, Singapore.

Zac Purton will again ride the Paul O’Sullivan-trained gelding.

Second favourite at $5 is another Hong Kong star, Lucky Nine, trying to win his third consecutive KrisFlyer.

“Lucky Nine has always had a few niggles, which is normal given his age, but he’s won this race twice and always seem to enjoy it when he comes here,” trainer Caspar Fownes said.

Trainer faces two charges

NARACOORTE trainer Sue Jaensch has been charged on two counts after Letmedowngently won at Ararat on February 23.

Stewards charged Jaensch with taking Letmedowngently to the races with prohibited substance Dexamethasone (a corticosteroid) in the mare’s system and not keeping accurate records of treatment.

Battle to get on first starter

THERE’S been an avalanche of money for the Hawkes’ team’s well bred first starter Battle Of Troy at Caulfield.

At CrownBet the half brother to Wandjina was backed from $5.50 to $2.90 with the first bet taken was $3000 win at $5.50.

Battle Of Troy has also been backed from $5 to $3.20 with TAB fixed odds.
