Latoria to Target Beaufine Stakes 2012

Classy WA mare Latoria will be given another shot at black type glory in Saturday week’s 2012 Beaufine Stakes, the five-year-old resuming after a four month break.

Her Bullsbrook based trainer Jim Taylor plans to give her a sharp trial next Monday before tackling the $80,000 Listed Beaufine Sprint (1000m) at Belmont Racecourse, a race won 12 months ago by the now Patrick Payne-trained All Friared Up.

A winner of seven of her 14 starts so far, Latoria has only finished out of the money on two occasions and both of those runs were a far from disgraceful fourth, and both were first-up.

After an unbeaten summer campaign at Ascot that culminated with a narrow victory over Werd and All Friared Up in the Listed Schweppes Summer Scorcher (1000m) on New Year’s Eve, Latoria resumed on March 17.

This time Chris Gangemi’s veteran Hussonet gelding Werd was able to turn the tables on Latoria who crossed one and three quarter lengths away fourth to them in the Listed WATC Stakes (1000m).

Last time out Latoria ran another good placing when a close third behind Power Princess in the Listed Miss Andretti Stakes (1200m).

Now Taylor is hoping she can improve on her somewhat disappointing first-up record and take down the competition in the Beaufine Sprint.

Latoria had a hitout at Lark Hill on Monday but could only manage to finish seventh to Henry De Horse over 250-metres when failing to let down on the rain-affected track, prompting Taylor to give her another run before the Beaufine.

“There was a downpour just before her heat and they were splashing water everywhere,” Taylor said.

“Jason (Brown) said the track raced like there was no bottom to it and she didn’t handle the going at all.

“She will probably have to trial again next Monday because she got no benefit from it.”

Meanwhile Taylor’s stable favourite Barakey, who knocked their nearside foreleg back in May, is still around three months from a race return.

“He is jogging up at the moment and should be ready to race in October,” Taylor said.

The undefeated Key Business four-year-old has won eight from eight so far, most recently the Listed Toyota Stakes (1100m) at Northam on April 29.
