OASIS DREAM'S IMAGING WINS GROUP 2

Juddmonte-bred Imaging (OASIS DREAM) gained his first Australian win in the Ajax Stakes Gr.2 on Saturday (14th March).

Imaging, as part of the Juddmonte draft, sold at last year's Tattersalls Autumn Horses In Training Sale for 260,000gns. The Chris Waller-trained imaging was unplaced on his Australian debut but took the Ajax Stakes smoothly. His new connections have indicated that his next target will be the Doncaster Mile Gr.1 at Randwick.

"That's what he was supposed to do first-up, but things went wrong," winning jockey James McDonald said. "It just shows when a horse does get into a bit of a tussle, how much it takes it out of them.

"He dropped out last time, but he wasn't dropping out today. I think he'll be a huge chance in a Doncaster. He's the real deal. He's obviously in that right camp for the Randwick mile."
