Blue Diamond Stakes 2012 Assignment for Fuddle Dee Duddle

Promising Perth-based filly Fuddle Dee Duddle will be aimed at the prestigious 2012 Blue Diamond Stakes during next year’s Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival, connections of the well-bred juvenile confident she has the ability to race competitively interstate.

A daughter of American-bred sire Red Ransom from Beautiful Crown mare Bella Inez, Fuddle Dee Duddle was purchased for $240,000 at this year’s Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale by notable Western Australian breeders Ron Sayers and Eddie Rigg.

Prepared by Alfred Cove trainer Lindsey Smith, Fuddle Dee Duddle has raced two times to date earning $42,500 in prize money.

Running an eye-catching second on debut in the Westspeed 2YO Plate (1000m) at Ascot on October 22, Fuddle Dee Duddle broke her maiden status last start on November 5 winning the Buildex Climaseal 5 Plate (1100m).

Smith is now making plans for an ambitious Melbourne Autumn Carnival campaign next year with the filly.

Her first Victorian assignment is scheduled as the $250,000 Inglis Premier (1200m) at Mornignton on February 15, a race the Lee Freedman-trained Masthead won this year before their game third to Peter Snowden’s superstar colt Sepoy in the Blue Diamond Stakes.

If all goes well and Fuddle Dee Duddle performs up to par, Smith will take her all the way to the $1 million Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m), one of Australia’s richest races for two-year-olds, at Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday, 25 February, 2012.

“The owners paid a lot for her so we thought we’d give her a chance in the race,” Smith said.

“I don’t think she’s far away from them (the Victorian horses).

“I think she’s a good horse.

“We’ll try to get her on a flight in the next few weeks with some of those horses over here from Melbourne going back home.”

While in Victoria, Fuddle Dee Duddle will reside at the Mornington-based stables of Tony Noonan.

“She’ll stay at Tony Noonan’s because the Mornington-trained horses seem to have an advantage on their track,” Smith explained.

“If she goes super good, the owners will make a decision if she stays on (for the Blue Diamond Stakes) or not.”

Fuddle Dee Duddle is a half-sister to the Peter Moody-trained Starcraft filly Hallowell Belle, who is owned by WA-based connections.

Hallowell Belle ran third in this year’s Blue Diamond Prelude before her second to Sepoy in the main event.

The 2012 Patinack Farm Blue Diamond Stakes nominations of yearlings were taken in July with a total of 1279 entered.

First declarations for the feature are due today, Tuesday November 22, narrowing down the list of hopefuls heading towards the million dollar showdown.

Stay tuned to Races.com.au for all the latest 2012 Blue Diamond Stakes nomination and field updates.
