Quinton’s Two 2012 Winter Stakes Hopes

Ron Quinton-trained pair Irish Dream and Onecatstoomany may not be among the favourites for tomorrow’s Listed $100,000 2012 Winter Stakes (1400m) but the Sydney trainer believes both are capable of causing an upset.

Onecatstoomany ($16.00) comes into the race in good form for her first step up to Listed level while Irish Dream ($17.00) is a regular black-type runner that is yet to taste success at stakes level.

Fresh off consecutive seconds at Newcastle and Rosehill, Quinton said the biggest challenge for Onecatstoomany is stepping up to 1400 metres for the first time.

“The 1400 metres is a query but sometimes the tempo of 1400m races can be different to 1200, especially at Warwick Farm, and that will suit her,” he said.

“She’s a good galloper but 1400 metres might just find her out.”

Lightly raced for just 15 starts, the five-year-old mare has scored victory three times and went within a nose of beating talented filly Embark last start.

Irish Dream has also shown impressive form of late, placing in her last two starts in $70,000 BM80 events at Rosehill.

Quinton said the reason for entering the pair in Saturday’s feature is to increase their stud value with both soon to become broodmares.

“Whether [Onecatstoomany] goes to stud this year I’m not sure, but if she could get a bit of black type that would help her,” he said.

“That’s the same with the other mare, Irish Dream.”

With many strong horses being spelled ahead of spring campaigns, Quinton takes confidence out of the fact the field contains less quality than a regular Listed event.

“It’s probably not an overly strong Listed race which gives her an opportunity,” Quinton said.

Current favourite at bookmaker.com.au to win the Warwick Farm sprint is Joe Pride-trained gelding See The World who is chasing a third consecutive victory.
