McEvoy Misses Mount on Tiara Top Pick

Champion Sydney-based trainer Peter Snowden is in search of a replacement rider for his Group 1 winning mare Beaded in Saturday week’s final elite level Queensland Winter Racing Carnival feature after Kerrin McEvoy decided not to appeal his careless riding suspension.


Beaded will seek her second Group 1 win in Saturday week's Tattersall's Tiara

Lonhro five-year-old Beaded is the pre-field favourite to snare a second Group 1 victory when she lines up in the $500,000 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m), formerly known as the Winter Stakes, at Eagle Farm on June 25.

Breaking her Group 1 duck with a final-stride success over Love Conquers All in the Doomben 10,000 (1350m) on May 28, Beaded backed up running a brave second behind gun three-year-old Sincero in last weekend’s Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m).

Beaded has been ridden by Corey Brown for her 10,000 win, while Darley’s number one rider McEvoy took over duties on the ultra consistent mare for the Stradbroke.

McEvoy, however, will not be available for the Tattersall’s Tiara meeting currently serving an eight-meeting suspension for his ride aboard the Snowden-trained Benfica for their win in the Group 1 TJ Smith (1600m).

“I decided not to appeal,” McEvoy, who will be allowed to resume racing on Monday week, said on Wednesday.

“We thought about it, but I pleaded guilty and I thought it was a fair sentence.”

The fillies and mares feature registered as the Winter Stakes underwent a renaming this year due to Sky Racing picking up the sponsorship and subsequent naming rights for the final Group 1 feature of the season.

“Sky Racing values its partnership with Queensland racing and we are pleased this has been extended through the sponsorship of the Sky Racing Tattersall’s Tiara,” Sky Racing Chief Operating Officer Brendan Parnell said earlier in the week.

“We are looking forward to the running of the 2011 Sky Racing Tattersall’s Tiara and seeing which filly or mare can follow on from Melito who won the event last year.”
