Caulfield trainer Mick Price will unveil the latest product of a successful cross when Hearts Are Trumps (Show A Heart – Academy Of Dreams, by Royal Academy) steps out at Thursday’s Seymour meeting.
Hearts Are Trumps is a brother to dual Group 1 winner Heart Of Dreams (Show A Heart – Academy Of Dreams, by Royal Academy) and Group 3 victor Rightfully Yours (Show A Heart – Academy Of Dreams, by Royal Academy).
Hearts Are Trumps will make debut in the Centrebet’s Best Price Maiden Plate (1400m).
The gelding is the sixth foal to race out of Dream About It (Royal Academy – Dream About It, by Godswalk). Price said Hearts Are Trumps has shown ability but was not as sharp as his brothers at the same stage.
“He has ability,” Price said. “His is a nice-looking gelding and should run well on debut but he is not as advanced as Heart Of Dreams or Rightfully Yours was at the same time.
“He has had a jumpout at Caulfield and worked home well at the end of it.
“I would think he will show up first-up. We’ll see what he does first-up and proceed from there.”
