Tinto to miss Coolmore in change of Sydney plans
TOOWOOMBA mare Tinto will be redirected toward next Saturday's Group One George Ryder Stakes (1500m) after connections ruled out a Rosehill start for her tomorrow.
Tinto was an acceptor for tomorrow's Group One Coolmore Classic (1500m) at Rosehill but a minor setback this week has forced a reshuffle of her autumn plans.
The five-year-old kicked off her Sydney campaign with a game seventh placing in last month's Guy Walter Stakes (1400m) at Randwick.
Trainer Rex Lipp said Tinto has continued to please him in her build-up to a possible Doncaster Handicap run on April 2 and tomorrow's missed run will not upset her schedule.
"She worked very impressively on Monday but we've just had little hiccup with her so we'll keep her now for the George Ryder next week," Lipp said.
"It won't disrupt her program at all."
