In-form colt Anders will not take his place in the 2020 Run To The Rose (1200m) on Saturday, instead having a month between runs when he lines up in the 2020 Moir Stakes (1000m) at Moonee Valley on September 25th.
The San Domenico Stakes winner was nominated for the Run To The Rose, but won’t be running on Saturday, along with stable mate Prague, who was also nominated but will instead head to the 2020 Danehill Stakes (1200m) at Flemington.
News from trainer @eustacedj this morning is three year old Prague will head down the highway this week to contest Saturday’s Danehill Stakes @FlemingtonVRC
Also Anders will go straight to the Group One Moir @TheValley on Friday night September 25.
