Show County First-Up for Le Romain
Three-time Gr1 winner Le Romain is one of the stars from the Kris Lees stable scheduled to trial at Gosford on Monday. Le Romain, who ran second in an 800 metre trial on his home track at Newcastle last week, is expected to open his spring campaign in the Group 3 Show County Quality (1200m) at Randwick on 18 August. "There are plenty of weight-for-age options for him after that," Lees told racingnsw.com.au. "He could go to Melbourne for the Memsie Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on September 1." Although he failed to hit the board in five starts in the autumn, Le Romain was placed three times at Gr1 level, namely in the All Aged Stakes (behind Trapeze Artist), Doomben 10,000 (behind English), and the Kingsford-Smith Cup (behind Impending).
