2011 Coolmore Stud Stakes – Unique Quality the improver

Former jockey Frankie Stockdale has tried his luck at training for some time but hasn’t really come to the party with many quality horses.

Domicile well out from the major training centres in Sale, country Victoria, Stockdale has about 20 horses and most with country ability.

Unique Quality is a little different, yet to win in only three starts, Stockdale shows he has a big opinion of him by starting in the 2011 $502,000 Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes at Flemington on Saturday.

It will be a big ask for Unique Quality to beat Sepoy a horse that has won nine of ten starts.

Or others in the 2011 Coolmore Stud Stakes  that have at Group level, but don’t be surprised if Unique Quality fills a place at big odds.

He has something in common with Sepoy –  both horses are by Elusive Quality out of Danehill mares and the two have met in a race.

Unique Quality hasn’t raced in eight weeks but at his latest start finished third to Sepoy beaten 1-3/4 lengths in the Danehill Stakes (1200m) at Flemington.

On that occasion Unique Quality led and fought on strongly belying his maiden status.

Many better performed horses in the Coolmore Stud Stakes 2011 haven’t finished that close to Sepoy and are much shorter odds.

One expects through race experience and natural progression, Unique Quality could have easily improved since that run in September.

If Unique Quality wins the 2011 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m), punters around Australia will be diving for their form guides to see who this horses is.

It is unlikely he will, but if he does it is  great story for the little batting trainer from Sale who just might have stumbled on a horse that lives up to his name.

Unique Quality is the value that should be thrown into all exotic bets for the 2011 Coolmore Stud Stakes on Saturday.
