Golden Eagle ambitions for I’m Thunderstruck

OTI Racing’s Terry Henderson is setting his sights on some rich Sydney spoils with promising three-year-old I’m Thunderstruck.

The Mick Price and Michael Kent Jr-trained gelding has won three of his five careers starts, including his last start over 1400m at Flemington earlier this month.

“It’s early days yet, but he was very impressive last week and hopefully he can follow that up again next weekend at Moonee Valley,” Henderson told Racing.com.

“He is an unfurnished horse that still does a lot wrong in his races, but he is chock  full of ability, so we hope he can win his way through to a race like Golden Eagle (A$7.5 million, 1500m) in Sydney.

“If he can do that, that will be great.”

The son of Shocking was initially prepared in New Zealand by Matamata trainer Daniel Miller for whom he won his 1000m trial at Te Aroha in June last year before being sold privately to OTI through bloodstock agent Phill Cataldo.
