Playboy Aiming to Get Back on Top at the Gold Coast

Our Playboy is set to head to the Gold Coast in a move that trainer Mick Price believes will see the talented colt return to his best with the different way of going.

The son of Sebring took out the Group 3 Vain Stakes (1100m) over the likes of Ranting and Rulership, before a disappointing result in the McNeil Stakes (1200m), and a credible sixth in the Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m).

“We worked him reverse way a couple of times in the inside grass. He won a Group 3 here and he’s going for the Gold Coast Guineas over 1400m,” Price said.

“He used to interfere with himself. A couple of times we had to change shoeing on him, he used to hit under one hock.

“Since he has gone that way, he is as clean as a whistle.”

“He’s got a couple of races at Eagle Farm and Doomben,” Price said.

“He will do his training on the Gold Coast. I think the 1400m will suit him and he goes super that way of going.

“If I can get my timing right on him, it will be interesting.”
