Keith Mackay Quality 2012 Driefontein’s for the Taking

Gai Waterhouse filly Driefontein gets the opportunity to end her autumn with a bang this weekend when she turns out in the 2012 Keith Mackay Quality at Royal RandwickRacecourse.

Driefontein

Driefontein will be tough to beat in the Keith Mackay Quality on Saturday

She is by far the the top rated filly in the all-female juvenile sprint (1200m) and will be ridden by Tommy Berry who has been on board for all five of her starts.

Prior to a Golden Slipper sixth, the highly promising two-year-old was unbeaten from four starts and Berry is confident she will add another victory to her resume provided she has not been over done.

“She’ll definitely be the best horse in the race on Saturday and whether she’s had enough or not, we’ll find out,” Berry said.

A regular jockey for first lady of racing Waterhouse, Berry was pleased with how Driefontein ran in the Slipper despite some misbehaviour in the gates.

“She probably ran the fastest last 400 metres of the race, or at least one of the fastest,” Berry said.

“She’s just got to sort out her barrier manners.”

Despite being the clear standout in the 10-horse field, the daughter of Fastnet Rock has some obstacles to overcome including an outside barrier draw and a huge weight of 60.5kg which is four kilograms more than her closest rivals.

Driefontein burst on to the scene late last year, winning by three lengths on debut at Randwick before taking the Group 3 BJ McLachlan Stakes at Doomben.

She then went on to win the lucrative Magic Millions event on the Gold Coast and backed it up with a win in the Widden Stakes as her final hit out before the Golden Slipper.

Her most likely rivals on Saturday are Anthony Cummings-trained Agueda and Peter Snowden filly Meidung.

Agueda is coming off a second-place finish in the Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes while Meidung was last seen running third to Samaready in the Group 2 Reisling Stakes.
