Samizdat ready for farewell party

Talented galloper Samizdat is hopeful of leaving Western Australia as a winner before he heads to Victoria for a Spring Campaign. 

The six-year-old gelding by Not A Single Doubt was too strong for his rivals first-up in the Listed Newmarket and now looks even more suited in the Listed Idyllic Prince Stakes (1300m) this weekend. 

Following his first-up victory the stable planned to head to Victoria, however due to COVID-19 that flight was no longer available, forcing him to race one more time before heading east. 

The seven-time winner meets horses such as Tellem We’re Comin , Floyd, Pym’s Royale and Multiverse better in the weights, despite beating them last start.  

Brad Parnham will jump back in the saddle having chosen to ride Indian Pacific first-up, which paved the way for Clint Johnston-Porter to ride and win on Samizdat. 

Johnston-Porter who is having plenty of success for the Gangemi stable including the Listed victory on Samizdat and three victories on Notorious One will ride stablemate Floyd. 

All going to plan this weekend at Belmont Park, Samizdat will target the Group 1 Rupert Clarke as his first start in Victoria.
