The Group 1 Victoria Derby, the oldest pacing classic in Australia, is due to run this Saturday night February 2, 2013, at Melton racecourse.
While Guaranteed is the overwhelming race favourite at bookmaker.com.au, paying odds of $1.65, owner Emilio Rosati has complete faith in fellow competitor Ee And Em Stride.
Ee And Em Stride is paying $16 to win the 2013 Victoria Derby at bookmaker.com.au and has drawn barrier one for the race.
Rosati feels the barrier will give Ee And Em Stride the edge over the competition in the 2013 Victoria Derby,
“I think Ee and Em Stride is a fabulous horse, you can do anything with him, he has good speed at the start of his races, has high speed when he is saved for one run and can do it tough too, he’s very versatile,” Rosati said.
“Barrier one is perfect for him and Luke (McCarthy driver) should be able to use that gate to his advantage, I think he is going to be in the finish even though it is a very strong field of three year olds, I am looking forward to heading down to Melbourne on the weekend and watching him race.
“The plan with Ee and Em Stride is to not over race him as a three year old, I always try and look after my horses that way, after the Victoria Derby he will come back to Sydney for the New South Wales Derby.”
