Threedee to make welcome return

Stakeswinning son of Archway, Threedee, makes a welcome return to racing at Moonee Valley on Saturday in the 1200m Open Handicap.

The rising 6yo has been very lightly raced over his career, starting nineteen times in total, but this has not stopped him amassing over $200,000 for his connections despite taking seven starts to break his Maiden status at Murray Bridge. He then went on to win four of his next six starts culminating in the Listed Yalumba Plate at Mophettville in 2005.

His first two starts as a Winter 4yo saw him record two excellent wins at Moonee Valley and Flemington in Open company before being set for a Spring campaign. He did not seem to fire with best effort was a second at Sandown where he was beaten by the barest of margins.

He resumes on Saturday after having a good spell throughout the Autumn and should he return to his best, he looks an exciting prospect heading into the rapidly approaching Spring.
