Andrew Forsman and Murray Baker will have Highlad joining Saracino in Australia.

An Australian trip has been confirmed for the unbeaten Wanganui Guineas winner Highlad.

“He holds a nomination for the Caulfield Guineas, but it might be a bit short for him,” said co-trainer Murray Baker.

“Being a son of High Chaparral, we’d hope that we can aim him at races like the Gloaming Stakes and Spring Champion Stakes in Sydney or the Victoria Derby at Flemington.”

Meanwhile, Highlad’s stablemate Saracino will make his Australian debut in Saturday’s Gr. 2 Danehill Stakes at Flemington.
