Kerrin McEvoy will be reunited with the champion New Zealand sprinter-miler Turn Me Loose in the Gr.2 Australia Stakes at Moonee Valley on January 27.

“He won the Emirates on him last year so he knows him well,” said Murray Baker, who prepares the Iffraaj five-year-old with Andrew Forsman.

“It’s only 1200 metres and it will be too short for him and he always needs a race to get him going. The main aims are the Orr Stakes and the Futurity Stakes, which he won last year.

“I’ve got to say that we are thrilled with the way the horse is going.”

Turn Me Loose will be flown to Melbourne on tomorrow evening.
