Australian Bloodstock are very pleased with the run of RODRIGO DIAZ in last night’s Group 3 Geoffrey Freer Stakes at Newbury.
“It was a good edition of the Geoffrey Freer and Rodrigo Diaz continues to raise the bar each time David Simcock steps him out.” – Jamie Lovett, Australian Bloodstock
The race was void of tempo and for RODRIGO DIAZ to come from the tail of the field and run a proven 115 rated stayer like HUKUM to a couple of lengths was an outstanding effort.

“Most importantly he passed the ballot for the Melbourne Cup and we now have to plan a path to ensure that he is weighted to secure a start in our great race.
The two mile at Flemington with a light weight would see him with an undeniable chance.” said Lovett
He’s done enough now to show us he is an ideal Melbourne Cup horse over his optimum 2 mile trip. To do what he did sitting near last off a slow pace against a 115 rated mile-and-half horse in HUKUM was very pleasing.” – Niall O’Connor – Quantum Leap Racing
He is a very exciting prospect going forward.
“Very pleased with the run of Rodrigo Diaz at the weights, he should not have been able to get within 7-8 lengths of HUKAM, yet he’s run a very good 2nd placing which now qualifies him for the Caulfield cup and Melbourne cup and he’s well on track. – Luke Murrell, Australian Bloodstock
The Australian Bloodstock team is very excited about our upcoming imports who are bound to make their presence felt in the upcoming Spring Carnival.
