Blinkers Key To Ilovethiscity Winning 2011 George Main Stakes

September 15th, 2011

Trainer Grahame Begg will attempt to win the Group 1 George Main Stakes this Saturday September 17, 2011, by fitting Ilovethiscity with blinkers for the first time in his horse racing career.

Ilovethiscity will be looking for his first win of the spring after he finished a disappointing eighth in the Group 2 Sebring Sprint last start.

“It’s his first time in blinkers,” Begg said.

“We’ve had them up our sleeve for a while so I thought Saturday was a good opportunity to go down that track.

“Hopefully they will just keep him a bit more switched on.”

Begg insists that Ilovethiscity’s eighth placing in his last start was not a true indication of his ability.

“The race probably wasn’t run to suit him really,” Begg said.

“It was a slowly run race and they quickened up before the turn and the horses that got back a bit found it hard to get into the race.

“He didn’t let down as quick with the 58 kilos on his back and he was giving five and six kilos to the rest of the field.”
