I Wish I Win pleased his connections with his third placing in last Saturday’s Gr.1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield and co-trainer Peter Moody reported on Monday that the New Zealand-bred has pulled up well from his first-up run.
“He trotted up well, (he’s) in good order (and) ate well all weekend,” said Moody, who trains in partnership with Katherine Coleman.
“He left a double handful of dipper of feed Saturday night, so he knew he’d had a run, but then he ate up last night.
“The vets trotted him up and flexed him up, so everything seems good.
“He’s just going to have a little jog on the treadmill this morning then he’ll go and have a lap of the pool and around mid-morning, we’ll shoot him down the beach and he can have the rest of the week down there.
“He seems to have come through the run in fine order. He seems happy and healthy.”
The A$20 million The Everest (1200m) now beckons the Waikato Stud-bred and raced gelding, who will fill the slot of Trackside Media, who secured the use of Inglis’ slot in this year’s race.
