The Astrologist, a rising eight-year-old sprinter, is set to embark on a Queensland campaign this winter.

Trained by Leon and Troy Corstens, the seasoned gelding, who ventured to both Dubai and the UK last year, will continue his campaign at Caulfield on Saturday before heading north to the Sunshine State.

Troy Corstens outlined their plans.

“We’re going to run in the Super VOBIS race at Caulfield, he gets in quite well at the weights.

“Then we’ll take him up to Brisbane and we’ll probably run him in the Kingsford Smith and then The Stradbroke.”

Describing The Astrologist’s current condition, Corstens remarked, “He looks outstanding at the moment, he’s come right on and he’s a great traveller, he eats wherever you take him, he enjoys the new environment and it’s a great attribute to have as a horse.”

“He really enjoys it, he handles it really well.

“He’s peppered the whole way along and I think the Stradbroke might be a perfect race.

“Down in the weights, 1400 metres – could be a perfect combination.”
