Talented two-year-old Not An Option has crossed the Tasman.
The son of Not a Single Doubt was an impressive winner of his first two starts including the Gr.2 Wakefield Challenge Stakes (1100m), then placed in the Gr.2 Eclipse Stakes (1200m) before a tough run from a wide gate when unplaced in the Karaka Million 2YO (1200m).
“He travelled over with The Bostonian and is set to trial at Randwick on the 12th,” trainer Tony Pike said. “The most likely plan with him is to have two trials, then run fresh up in the Kindergarten Stakes (Gr.3, 1100m) at Randwick on April 4.
“We gave him a break after the Karaka Million (1200m), and that did him the world of good. He’s looking great and coming up very well.”
