Ashokan will attempt to post an early autumn Black Type win in the 2013 Royal Sovereign Stakes at Warwick Farm racecourse this Saturday February 16, 2013.
The three-year-old is being aimed at the race in order to try and beat some of the better horses in his age group to the track.
Ashokan has already won the Group 3 Skyline Stakesas a two-year-old at Royal Randwick racecourse last March.
He then went on to place 12th in the Group 1 Golden Slipper, before running sixth being Pierro and All Too Hard in the Group 1 Inglis Sires’ Produce Stakes.
As a three-year-old, his best result has been a third placing in the Group 1 Golden Rose last September and he will be looking to post his first win of the season in the 2013 Royal Sovereign Stakes.
Trainer John O’Shea is confident Ashokan can win the 2013 Royal Sovereign Stakes after his impressive trial performance earlier this month.
“He trialled very well,” O’Shea said.
“I’ve tried to get him going before those really good horses come back.”
Ashokan has won one of his eight race starts and has earned more than $220,000 in prize money during his horse racing career.
