Everest favourite Santa Ana Lane is in doubt for one of his major lead-up races because of Sydney’s rain.
Trainer Anthony Freedman has delayed Santa Ana Lane’s trip from Melbourne for Saturday’s Group Two Shorts at Randwick.
Santa Ana Lane was scheduled to travel overnight on Wednesday but Freedman said he would leave the decision until Thursday afternoon.
Randwick is in the heavy range for Saturday’s meeting which also features the Group One George Main Stakes.
Santa Ana lane is favourite for the $14 million Everest on October 19.
The Premiere Stakes at Randwick on October 5 is an option.
