Queen Of The South Stakes 2012 Taken by So Pristine

Peter Moody-trained mare So Pristine has upset a host of more highly rated horses in the Group 2 $175,000 Queen Of The South Stakes 2012 (1600m) at Morphetville today.

Paying $12.00, the daughter of Zabeel benefited from a quality ride from regular Moody jockey Luke Nolen who held the six-year-old back nicely early before finding a path on the straight to finish strongly ahead of race favourite Little House.

It was a good effort from Little House who was withdrawn from the barriers after misbehaving and dismounting jockey Shayne Cahill.

She was not spooked by the pre-race incident and finished strongly, suggesting she will excel at longer distances as her career progresses.

It was the first Group level victory for So Pristine and Moody said he had finally found the right distance for the mare.

“She’s raced without luck. I’ve made the mistake of trying to train her to stick on a bit. I think the mile is as far as she wants,” he said.

“I was confident. Watching the way she travelled, she was just going to need that bit of luck to get a run in the straight.

“She got it and it looks like it might be a lucky day for us.”

Jockey Luke Nolen was happy to find some success for his major ride of the day on superstar Black Caviar in the Robert Sangster Stakes.

“Find a bit of form before the mare runs round I suppose,” Nolen said.

“These mares are sometimes just better suited to mares races, she’s been running well.”

So Pristine now has seven wins from 29 starts, with today’s victory by the most prominent of her career.

Colin Little-trained filly Blue Ribbon produced a strong effort to finish in third place after also misbehaving prior to the race.

Black Caviar is not too far away, so head to bookmaker.com.au quickly to have a bet on what looks set to be a history making race.
