UNABASHED Excites fan Jason Coyle is set to unveil his latest star by the Vinery resident in the shape of Glacier Express who tackles the ATC Congrats Chris Waller Handicap (1400m) at Warwick Farm tomorrow.
Coyle has enjoyed tremendous success with the breed via the likes of stakeswinner Scream Machine and this year’s Inglis 2YO Challenge tearaway winner Sweet Serendipity.
Glacier Express is primed for a bold showing on debut with two solid trials including an impressive last to first win at his home track in Sydney’s south-west by 1.3-lens on July 5.
The gelding is the first foal of the Scenic mare Swiss Alps who won 4 races herself and was placed at both Eagle Farm and Doomben.
Her third dam is the Sackford daughter Rhythmic Charm who won the Group 1 AJC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1600m) 16 years before her sire Excites took out the same race.
Excites seems set for a booking weekend given the appearances of consistent stayer Black Jag also at Warwick Farm while the lightly-raced 3YO Bombsquad is tipped to build on his encouraging first-up effort when he lines up in the MRC Polytrack Handicap at Sandown on Sunday.
