Soft Sand Trials Strongly Ahead of 2012 Tattersall’s Tiara

Boom filly Soft Sand has impressed in a barrier trial ahead of Saturday week’s Group 1 $500,000 2012 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) at Eagle Farm.

The Colin Little-trained three-year-old won the trial by nine lengths on a heavy track over 1200 metres at Deagon this morning.

It comes as a relief for Little who yesterday expressed concern that the trial would be abandoned due to wet weather and would force him to withdraw his young star.

“We’ve already been washed out twice and it will have been a month between runs going into a 1400m Group 1. If we don’t trial, we don’t run,” Little said yesterday.

Soft Sand has been particularly impressive in her young career, winning four times and placing on another two occasions from seven career outings.

A daughter of British horse Dansili, Soft Sand was bought for $160,000 at the Inglis Easter Yearling Sale in 2010 but has already paid back her price tag by collecting $200,000 in prize money.

The talented up-and-comer will be among the favourites in the last Group 1 event of the Brisbane Winter Carnival which is set to feature a showdown with Stradbroke Handicap winner Mid Summer Music.

Mid Summer Music surprised even trainer Peter Moody last weekend when she took out the $1 million carnival feature by nearly two lengths ahead of Queensland star Buffering.

Rated a $26.00 outside chance, the six-year-old produced by far the best race of her career, taking her record to 10 wins from 23 starts and her prize pool to more than $1.2 million.

The Tattersall’s Tiara stands as the feature event of the last day of the Brisbane Winter Carnival that also features the Group 3 Healy Stakes and the Group 3 Tattersall’s Cup.

Last year’s event was won by the Stuart Webb-trained mare Yosei who went on to finish fourth in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic and third in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile at this year’s Sydney Winter Carnival.

The Tattersall’s Tiara market won’t open until next week but in the mean time why not back a winner in Saturday’s Ipswich Cup by signing up at
