The time honoured G1 Caulfield Guineas is the next target for exciting colt FOUJITA SAN. Bred on the same Maurice x Redoute’s Choice cross as multiple G1 winner HITOSU FOUJITA SAN has earned his position in the barriers off the back of a very strong second in the G2 Stutt Stakes at Moonee Valley on Friday 30 September 2022. This exciting son of MAURICE has been ear-marked for top flight contests since his maiden win at Sandown in April and will contest his first Group One race on Saturday 8 October 2022.
Co-trainer Wayne Hawkes reported that FOUJITA SAN is in fine order and will be suited by the track which is likely to race at a predicted Good 4 or Soft 5. Damian Thornton has been booked to ride.
Both Mark and alongside Rob Roulston are delighted to have their first G1 runner under the PR Colts Fund banner in the first group of colts. “All owners aim to have G1 runners and to get an exciting colt like FOUJITA SAN lining up in the Caulfield Guineas is a wonderful testament to the support of our investors. FOUJITA SAN has a very tough task in front of him after drawing the widest barrier but clearly he deserves his place in the 3yo Classic.”
