Wolfy’s Australia Day return


Nick Ryan is open to options with his talented three-year-old colt Wolfy during the autumn carnival.

The lightly raced son of Tivaci will resume from a spell in the Group 3 Manfred Stakes (1200m, three-year-olds) at Caulfield on Australia Day.

Last spring Wolfy put together back-to-back wins at Sale and then at Flemington, before he finished 11th in the Caulfield Guineas where he started at $16.

Ryan said the obvious goal for Wolfy would be the Australian Guineas, but Ryan isn’t committing to that as he’s not certain he can run 1600 metres.

It was his Caulfield Guineas effort which left Ryan unsure whether he could run 1600 metres.

He pointed out that the run was the sixth and final of his first preparation which began during winter

“We’re not sure whether the 1600m is his go for this preparation. In his first prep he went a long way as he had a run in July as a two-year-old then he went through to the Guineas,” Ryan said.

“We’re still learning about him. It could be the goal but it’s still early days with him.”

“I’m very happy with him as he has had a good break. He won’t be wound up as he’s got plenty of improvement to come.”

Highly credentialed seven-year-old Perth sprinter Indian Pacific will also make his debut for Nick Ryan in the W.J Adams Stakes at Caulfield.

Ryan said his Perth trainer Neville Parnham decided to leave the sprinter who campaigned in Melbourne last spring with him.

In 2021 Indian Pacific finished a close second to Zoutori in the Newmarket Handicap.

Indian Pacific won an 800 metres trial at Werribee on January 12 running a time of 47.87 seconds which was easily the fastest of the ten trials held that day.
