News:

Imported Mike Moroney-trained stayer Araldo Junior will be one of the hopes of the stable this spring, albeit not at the top level.

Moroney’s highly credentialled three-year-olds, Alaskan Rose and Tulsa, have had their Classic campaigns terminated.

A last-start winner of the Benalla Cup on October 2, Araldo Junior has been nominated for the Geelong Cup on Wednesday.

Moroney has indicated the stayer will also be entered for the Moonee Valley Cup on Saturday and the Bendigo Cup on Wednesday week.

“We’ll pick whichever is the weaker version of those three races,” Moroney said.

“We’re just trying to get him through the grades a bit and it will probably be in the autumn or next spring that we see a lot more of him.”

Bred in Germany where he did his early racing, Araldo Junior has had three starts since arriving in Australia with the Benalla Cup, in which he defeated Group One winner Thunder Lady.

Araldo Junior is the younger half-brother of Araldo who finished a creditable seventh in last year’s Melbourne Cup but had to be euthanised later that day following an accident when he was injured on his way back in after the race.

Alaskan Rose and Tulsa have been sent for a break after finishing out of the money in their respective Guineas races on October 10.

“Alaskan Rose displaced her soft palate during the run so she will have to come back with a tongue tie and different gear on to stop her from doing that,” Moroney said.

“That’s the reason she dropped right out of it, but she’d had enough anyway.”

Moroney said he wasn’t sure if the filly did the same when weakening in the Prelude, putting it down to the fact the race was run at a muddling pace.

“We had to go once more but it wasn’t inconclusive the second time,” Moroney said.

“She’s a long way better than that.”
