Dancing towards Stakes missions

Iwannadancelikehim (Sam Spratt) is on target for important assignments after this Ellerslie win last month.

Sam Logan has a couple of Group races in mind for her in-form galloper Iwannadancelikehim.

The Cambridge trainer has both the Gr.2 Windsor Park Stud Japan/NZ International Trophy and the Gr.2 Manco Easter Stakes on the gelding’s programme.

“We’re going to run him over 1500 metres at Ellerslie and if he goes well then we’ll step him up to a mile,” said Logan.

Iwannadancelikehim will be ridden in Saturday’s Australian Turf Club Trophy by Mark Du Plessis.

The seven-year-old has now won four of his 12 starts from Logan’s stable with his latest success being the Rating 85 defeat of the Group Three winner Serious Satire at Ellerslie last month.
