Wachman thrilled with Rock

Sat, 18 August 2012

David Wachman is in no rush to make any immediate big plans for Galileo Rock following his runaway debut victory at Leopardstown on Thursday.

The stoutly-bred son of Galileo could not have been more impressive on his racecourse introduction over a mile, pulling right away for a seven-length success.

Bookmakers were quick to introduce the colt at 25-1 for next year's Investec Derby at Epsom, but Wachman has yet to map out firm ideas for the rest of the current campaign.

"He's a nice horse and a real three-year-old in the making. He looks an exciting prospect," said Wachman.

"We haven't done a whole lot with him, but he seemed to be quite a nice horse at home before his run at Leopardstown.

"He's going to be more of a three-year-old so we won't rush him and we'll take our time and try and pick the right races for him.

"He's in all the big races, so we'll have a look and see."
