Pinker Pinker to Contest Storm Queen Stakes on Golden Slipper Day 2011

Pinker Pinker

The 2011 Storm Queen Stakes on Golden Slipper Day is next on the agenda for Pinker Pinker

Greg Eurell’s improving filly Pinker Pinker has earned a crack at Group 1 glory during the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival with the $400,000 Group 1 Storm Queen Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill on Golden Slipper Day 2011 next on the agenda for the smart three-year-old.

Last Saturday Reset filly Pinker Pinker claimed a gritty win in the Group 3 Schweppervescence Trophy (1600m) at Flemington beating home a fast finishing Platinum Passion in the final strides.

The victory gave Pinker Pinker back-to-back wins in Melbourne after she previously saluted in the Group 2 Angus Armanasco Stakes (1400m).

Eurell has now confirmed plans to head to Sydney for the 2011 Storm Queen Stakes with Pinker Pinker, the fillies-only showdown set to run at Rosehill on Saturday April 2.

Pinker Pinker is yet to race in Sydney with Cranbourne-based trainer Eurell likely to start her in one other event prior to Golden Slipper Day to give her a feel before chasing Group 1 spoils in the Storm Queen.

The Storm Queen Stakes is one of five elite level features at the premier autumn carnival meeting along with the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) for two-year-olds, the weight-for-age Group 1 The BMW (2400m), the fillies and mares Group 1 Queen of the Turf Stakes (1500m) and the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m).

Pinker Pinker has now won four of her nine career starts to date with the Storm Queen Stakes her second Group 1 assignment.

Last spring Pinker Pinker looked a little green in her maiden Group 1 run in the Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield on October 13 where she finished five lengths away seventh to winner Yosei.

Another young filly possibly heading towards a start in this year’s Storm Queen Stakes field is the Peter Moody-trained Do Ra Mi.

The daughter of Savabeel ran a game second to Southern Speed in the Group 3 The Mittys Vanity (1400m) at Flemington on February 19 before storming home to win the Group 2 Kewney Stakes (1400m) last Saturday.

In the Kewney Stakes Do Ra Mi overcame her wide barrier 12 draw to easily defeat Crown Oaks winner Brazilian Pulse by 2 ½ lengths earning her a potential shot at the Storm Queen Stakes.

The Kewney Stakes has in recent years proved a good guide for punters betting on the Storm Queen, with Bart Cummings’ now retired mare Faint Perfume having taken out the Kewney Stakes / Storm Queen Stakes double last year, the Storm Queen then known as the Vinery Stud Stakes.
