Power Scheme for the Derby

Whilst the Derby is still some weeks off, it won’t concern Power Scheme, he can wait, that was a very good pre trial for the classic and he can improve.

He is built like a stayer and races like a stayer; he carried the 60 kgs with ease and could have gone around again and still won.

Power Scheme is now a well matured three year old gelding, he is a promising young stayer with a bright future, to geld him was obviously the best decision.  

That was a good run at Moonee Valley; he quickened when called upon and went strong to the line.

He is right on track to give his sire Fiorente his first stakes winner, and he will race on as he is not likely to go to stud.

Fiorente is chipping away at this stage as his progeny need maturity, they are now four year olds, this is likely to be his best season.

He did run second to Green Moon in the Melbourne Cup, he came back the following year to win at weight for age at Moonee Valley over a mile, third in the Cox Plate and capped it off winning the Cup in 2013.

Fiorente returned to Flemington in the autumn to win the Australian Cup, that doesn’t happen very often

Well known Flemington trainer, Russell Cameron, passed away earlier this week after a long illness.

He was born at Balranald just over the border from Swan Hill, his father Ted was also a trainer and so was his grandfather, they would survive where others would starve. .

Bookmakers feared Ted when he entered the betting ring, he wasn’t there for the good of his health, he meant business and business was done.

Russell was just a kid at that time but it didn’t take him long to figure it out, he was a quick learner, a chip off the old block.

His uncle Ken was an outstanding jockey but unfortunately he never completed an apprenticeship, hence he was restricted from riding in the city area.
