Former Hong Kong galloper Andoyas is being set on a cups path in the coming months after his victory in the Dunstan Feeds Stayers Championship Qualifier 2200 at Ellerslie on Saturday.
“It was a very pleasing win for Andrew, myself and the team,” said Lance O’Sullivan, who trains in partnership with Andrew Scott.
“It is always good to get the horses back from Hong Kong and for them to do well.”
Andoyas will return to Ellerslie on New Year’s Day for his first tilt at stakes company in New Zealand.
“He will run at Ellerslie in the City of Auckland Cup (Gr.3, 2400m), Andrew and I went through the program this morning and decided that is where we will head with him,” O’Sullivan said.
“We feel he will measure up to them, so we will give him a crack and see how we go.
“If he performs well in the City of Auckland Cup then hopefully we will head on to the Auckland Cup (Gr.1, 3200m) a little bit later on in the season.
“I think the further he goes, the better he will go.”
