All Eyes on Super Easy in Singapore Guineas

Three-year-old will attempt a sweep when he lines up at Kranji Racecourse May 18.

Super Easy will attempt to keep his winning streak alive when he takes on a dozen challengers in the Singapore Guineas at Kranji Racecourse May 18.

Undefeated in nine starts since being transferred to Singapore, the New Zealand-bred Super Easy (Darci Brahma--Parfore, by Gold Brose) will be trying to sweep Singapore’s Three-Year-Old Series, having won the Three-Year-Old Sprint and Singapore Three-Year-Old Classic earlier. Super Easy enters the Guineas off a 1 1/4-length victory in the Classic on April 22. The bay colt also has captured the Three Rings Trophy this season for trainer Michael J. Freedman. Overall, Super Easy has won 10 of 12 starts for owner Joy N Happiness Stable.

Joao Moreira will be in the saddle.

Several of the main challengers to Super Easy also are exiting the Classic. One such rival is Classican Stables’ Totality, a chestnut gelding by Danroad. Trained by Michael Clements, Totality finished second in that race, which marked his stakes debut. Prior to that, the gelding rattled off three straight victories in allowance races. K.B. Soo will be in the irons.

Another top contender is the Patrick Shaw-trained Let’s See Action. The bay gelding by Flying Spur has finished in the money in 10 of this 12 starts, and has notched three victories. He most recently finished third behind Super Easy and Totality in the Three-Year-Old Classic. Gregory Cheyne will ride.

Also in with a chance is Suzuka Racing Stable’s Better Life, a daughter of Smarty Jones  who has won three of five lifetime starts. Better Life finished fourth in the Classic, beaten just 2 1/4 lengths. Alan Munro will ride.

Aushorse Golden Horseshoe Stakes

Earlier on the card 18 juveniles will line up for the six-furlong Aushorse Golden Horseshoe. The field is led by Super Good, a son of Fastnet Rock that represents the same connections as Super Easy.

Super Good has made just two starts in his young career, winning once and coming home third in his other start. Joao Moreira will ride.

Rising Empire hopes to notch his first stakes win in the Golden Horseshoe. The son of Dehere has won once and has a second-place finish in two career starts. Leticia Anne Dragon trains Rising Empire for Empire Ninety Racing Stable. John Powell will ride.

Kentucky sire Artie Schiller will be represented by the Brian Dean-trained Jackpot. The juvenile colt has made three starts so far in his career, and although he has yet to win, he has two second-place finishes to his credit. Ivaldo Santana will ride.
