Wet 2012 Galaxy Improves Ladys Angel’s Chances

With the track currently rated as heavy and more rain predicted over the next couple of days, it is almost a certainty that the $350,000 Group 1 2012 Galaxy (1100m) will be run in wet conditions at Royal Randwick on Saturday.

One horse who should appreciate a soggy track is Joseph Pride-trained mare Ladys Angel who is chasing her first victory at Group level.

The five-year-old is one of three Pride-trained horses in the race, along with Title and News Alert, and Pride thinks conditions will suit the entire contingent.

“They have all got fantastic records in the wet,” Pride said.

After finishing 11th over 1500 metres in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic, Pride elected to her bring her back in distance and it paid off with a thrird-place finish to Atlantic Jewel in the Sapphire Stakes (1200m).

“I’m pretty sure that sprinting is her go,” Pride said.

“I like bringing horses back in distance. The way I train they are suited by it and I’ve had a lot of success doing it.”

Ladys Angel experienced plenty of success when she ran in the wet last year, winning the Hallmark Stakes on a heavy 10 and finishing runner-up on a heavy 8 in the June Stakes.

She’s run on heavy tracks on three other occasions, winning twice and finishing runner-up suggesting she could give the top class sprint a genuine shake if the weather continues as predicted.

A full allotment of 14 horses plus emergencies were yesterday named to contest the Galaxy and the field features plenty of quality.

Highly rated Victorian gelding Bel Sprinter is the early favourite, just ahead of Nobby Snip who is chasing a fourth straight victory.

Trained by Gai Waterhouse, Nobby Snip was particularly impressive on a Heavy (9) track in early march when he won the Fireball Quality by nearly two lengths.

Also named in the field is last year’s runner-up Thankgodyou’rehere, Sebring Stakes winner Zaratone and New Zealand gelding Winter King.

Betting will be open shortly for the 2012 Galaxy but in the meantime why not check out the bookmaker.com.au Doncaster market.
