Ken Condon sets sights on Australian honours with Success Days

Success Days

Success Days is an intended runner for Ken Condon in the valuable Queen Elizabeth Stakes at Randwick in Australia on April 14.

A Group Two winner at York last summer for Ken Condon, the six-year-old entire has been kept in training by connections but will veer away from his usual early season targets.

With over £2 million in prize money up for grabs, competition is likely to be stiff with Winx a potential opponent.

"It's very sporting of the owners to have a go," said Condon.

"It was a nice surprise for us that his owner decided to keep him in training and the organisers have been more than helpful in putting a plan in place.

"At this point the intention is to travel and run. If he was at home he'd have been running in the Alleged and the Mooresbridge Stakes as normal, but this is a bit more exciting.

"One of the organisers did tell me that in three of the last four years the ground has been slow and it is their autumn, although he's not an obvious candidate.

"He's a six-year-old now, there's some great prize money and hopefully he'll give a good account. He seems as enthusiastic as ever. It's a very sporting decision by Mr Ng and his racing manager, Rupert Pritchard-Gordon, to give it a go.

"It's a fantastic prize and it will be great to be involved."
