Goodwood Next For Immortality

Promising sprinter Immortality is on target for the Group One Goodwood Handicap following his dashing black type win in the ATA/Bob Hoysted Handicap at Flemington on Saturday.

Trainer Danny O'Brien was quick to confirm a step up to Group One company was the plan for the Queensland bred son of the late sire Lion Hunter.

"He's always shown good ability," O'Brien said.

"He's kept improving and he will probably head to Adelaide

"We'll look to the Goodwood and one of the lead ups there."

It hasn't always been smooth sailing for Immortality, a winner of five of his 13 starts to date with earnings of over $180,000.

"He had a wind operation before his first start," O'Brien revealed.

"He's been one of those horses who've been able to get over it and race successfully."

Rider James Winks said the gelding was a pretty easy horse to ride and he looked forward to partnering him again over the coming weeks.

"He's a nice horse," Winks said.

"He's a great fresh horse and I'm sure wherever Danny sends him he will be competitive."

Immortality is a half brother to the Group performed mare Megadeal and hails from the family of present day star Cargo Cult.

A half brother by Beautiful Crown to Immortality will be offered at next week's Magic Millions Yearling Sale at the Gold Coast.
