Paprika Fired Up For Coolmore Stud Stakes

Queensland filly Paprika is primed for Saturday’s Coolmore Stud Stakes after a successful week of training at Caulfield.

While preparing for the 1200m sprint race, trainer Liam Birchley had decided that the three year old was running 100 per cent and therefore did not need a barrier trial to prepare her for the straight course.

This weekend’s race will follow a solid fourth to Lucky Secret in the Group 2 Schillaci Stakes (1000m) held on October 10.

The race was the filly’s first weight-for-age event and her first run since having minor knee surgery.

Following the Group 1 race, Paprika will be prepped for the Patinack Farm Classic held one week later on the Emirates Stakes Day.

After the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival, Paprika will either stay on to race in the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival or she will return to Queensland for the Magic Millions held at the Gold Coast in January.

If the filly stays in Melbourne, she will be focusing on all Group 1 races including the Lightning Stakes and Newmarket Handicap at Flemington and the Oakleigh Plate at Caulfield.

In this Saturday’s race, Paprika will be up against horses her own age which will increase her chances of a win however she does have fierce competition in Paul Snowden’s colt Demerit and Thousand Guineas winner Irish Lights.

Trained by David Hayes, the three year old Irish filly was tossing up between running in the Coolmore Stud Stakes or the Myer Classic.

However due to the older mares being too much for the young winner to handle this early in her career, Hayes has decided to place Irish Lights with her own age group.
