“Flashy Seb is quite a nice horse and we may look to take him to Melbourne for the Need For Speed in early February, he has had a long prep so we decided to bring him home and get him ready for that,” Alchin said.
“He has a bright future and certainly will go back to Queensland next year.
“Troythetrotter in the three-year-old race, he went okay, as that was the first time, he trotted the whole way and he probably was not as sharp as he had been in other starts.
“Troythetrotter will have a good spell as well and they will both go for a good spell now.
“There is no reason we have a lot of trotters, it just sort of fell that way, but I do enjoy them, you just need to have a lot of patience.”
Alchin, who had a big winter in Queensland – training almost 30 winners - praised the Springboard Series as a concept, providing young trotters with more opportunities for the third year, branding it a great series.
The winner of the three-year-old edition, Marburg trainer Denis Smith agreed with Alchin, declaring anything that promotes trotters was excellent in his books.
Driven by Group 1-winning reinsman Paul Diebert, Smith’s Ignite collected his fifth career victory in the three-year-old Final from just 22 appearances on race day.
Experienced trainer Smith is hopeful his young trotter will come back bigger and better in his next preparation.
“I think he is a very able horse but he has got gait problems, which has proved to be a handicap for him at times,” Smith said.
“I have just turned him out for three months, he needs to grow a bit of length in his body.
“He has done a magic job I think, winning five races so far, a couple of his runs have been super that make you think he is a pretty fair horse.”
