Name Change Required
Breednet - Media Release - Monday, 6 March 2017
A strong staying performance at Ellerslie from Comin'through has pressed his claims for a trip to Brisbane later this year but he will need a name change should he come to Australia to avoid a mix up with the Chris Waller trained Comin' Through, a half-brother by champion sire Fastnet Rock to Criterion.

Comin'through - Race ImagesThe three-year-old followed the earlier winning lead on Saturday of his stablemate Tavidream to complete a double for trainers Donna Logan and Chris Gibbs.

Comin'through's latest victory in the Barfoot & Thompson 2100 has the connections of the Bullbars gelding seriously considering a crack at the Gr.1 Queensland Derby.

"He had to do a lot of work on Saturday and Leith (Innes) has been saying for quite a while that this is a good horse. Brisbane will be high on the agenda now.

"He can stay and he's beaten the older horses while he's still very green and still learning.

"He looks a nice horse for Queensland and we'll see what happens with Tavidream – he could go there as well and we haven't ruled out the Rosehill Guineas for him either."

The stable isn't short on three-year-old talent with Romancer another in line for a trip to Australia.
The winner of two of his six starts, including the Listed Mufhasa Stakes, he was forced out of Saturday's Gr.1 New Zealand Derby by a foot injury.

"He's good now and he may well be going to Brisbane as well. There is some good money on offer over there," Logan said.

Meanwhile, the stable's short-term Group One focus will be on Volkstok'n'barrell's tilt at the Bonecrusher New Zealand Stakes.

"We're really happy with him and we'll firm up future plans after Saturday," Logan said. – NZ Racing Desk.
