Melbourne Cup Target For Signoff
Meanwhile, trainer Darren Weir has reported that Australian Guineas hero Palentino will be joined by star stable-mates Signoff and Tosen Stardom as their spring preparations also start to get serious. After missing last year's spring carnival through injury, Weir said Signoff (4th in the 2014 Melbourne Cup) would once again be aimed at Australia's most famous race in the spring. "Signoff's good and his main goal is hopefully the Melbourne Cup," Weir said. "He'll probably follow a similar path to what Prince Of Penzance did last year." He added: "Tosen Stardom will probably kick off in the Makybe Diva [Gr1]."
