Luke Price, tossing up between two Rosehill races for talented three-year-old Man Of Choice, is poised to train alongside his father Robert.

And with a decision to go into a family training partnership, the Prices will open stables at Kembla Grange to complement their rural complex at Berry.

Price has trained a small team since weight got the better of him as a jockey almost seven years ago and he is also a regular trackwork rider for his father.

“I’ll be based at Kembla Grange and hopefully we’ll be up and running at the end of the year,” Price said.

“We’ll be looking to pick our numbers up and looking for new clientele.

“Nothing much will change. Dad will still be at the farm but he will come up to Kembla a couple of days a week.

“The property at Berry is something we don’t want to leave because it is such an advantage to have that as a back-up for pre-training.

“And you can get those city horses you do get a bit revved up and it’s a quiet place to have them because it’s got all the facilities there.”

The Prices will move into a 25-yard stable complex at Kembla Grange once it has been renovated.

Meanwhile, two fillies earmarked for the Queensland Oaks has Price considering his options for Man Of Choice on Saturday.

Man Of Choice has been nominated for two 1500m races and the three-year-old has 61kg against his own age group as opposed to 57.5kg.

“I’m prepared to go both ways and I’m going to sleep on it but I’m probably leaning towards running him against the older horses,” Price said.

If Price took the three-year-old option, Man Of Choice would be giving weight to promising fillies Chandana and Falkenberg.

Chandana and Falkenberg are among the early favourites for the Queensland Oaks at Eagle Farm on June 4.
