Gold Coast horseman Les Kelly is hoping his progressive mare Alltherightmoves has just that to win their maiden elite level title in this Saturday’s 2012 Tattersall’s Tiara at Eagle Farm Racecourse in Brisbane.
Johannesburg four-year-old Alltherightmoves is one of the top mares engaged to face off in this year’s $500,000 Group 1 Sky Racing Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m), due to run as Eagle Farm Race 7 at 3:47pm on Saturday.
Drawn in barrier 10 of 19 she has won six of her 11 career starts to date but is yet to post a stakes victory.
Only seeing black type company for the first time three starts back, Alltherightmoves comes off two Group race third place finishes in Brisbane.
Two back she finished two lengths away third to Wealth Princess in the Group 3 Glenlogan Park Stakes (1350m) at Doomben on a Good (3) track.
Her last start was the most impressive however when she finished less than half a length away third to the Chris Waller-trained Red Tracer in the Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes (1400m) at Eagle Farm on June 2 in the wet, the race run on a Heavy (8).
“They were enormous runs,” Kelly said of the mare’s two most recent outings.
“Her last run, if she’d had a bit of luck she could have easily won the race,” Kelly said.
“She was three-wide the whole way without cover.”
For her Dane Ripper run Alltherightmoves was ridden by Damien Oliver.
Oliver however has opted to stick with Colin Little’s up-and-comer Soft Sand (barrier 16) on Saturday.
This has freed Jason Taylor to reunite with Alltherightmoves, the jockey having ridden her to a two length win at the Sunshine Coast back in July last year.
“He knows her. He’s won on her before,” Kelly said of Taylor.
Alltherightmoves gets the chance to turn the tables on the two horses that beat her home in the Dane Ripper with the winner Red Tracer and runner-up Forfeiture both also set to back up in the Tattersall’s Tiara 2012.
She will have to meet Red Tracer two kilograms worse under the weight-for-age conditions and is unlikely to get a wet track however with Eagle Farm currently rated a Dead (4) with sunny skies predicted right up until race day and beyond.
Still Kelly is just thrilled to have Alltherightmoves racing in a Group 1 feature, the known wet tracker having enjoyed a rapid rise through the ranks since winning at Murwillumbah on a Heavy (10) at just her second start this time last year.
“She’s always had the ability,” Kelly said.
“She should have won her first seven in a row only her first start she reared at the start and got left 100 yards (before finishing sixth).
“She’s come a long way in a short time.
“I’ve got no doubt she will measure up to the mark in time but whether it’s this time or next time in we’ll have to wait until Saturday to see.
“She’s still improving – where the others have already been there, she’s still getting there.”
The other big name dangers in the Tattersall’s Tiara this year include Peter Moody’s Stradbroke Handicap champion Mid Summer Music drawn wide in gate 18, and the flying Gai’s Choice shooting for her fourth win on the trot.
