Sister Madly To Target 2012 Patinack Farm Stakes

Sister Madly To Target 2012 Patinack Farm Stakes

Triple Group 1 minor placegetter Sister Madly may finally get her chance to break her elite level duck with trainer John Sadler looking to cash in on Black Caviar’s absence this Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival and target the Patinack Farm Classic 2012 this November.

Sister Madly

Sister Madly is set to resume racing in the How Now Stakes 2012

The six-year-old Redoute’s Choice mare has been the picture of consistency over her 17 start career to date which started in Sydney under the preparation of Anthony Cummings.

With Cummings Sister Madly raced in six Group 1 events with her best efforts being a second to More Joyous in the 2009 Flight Stakes, third to Rostova in the 2010 Sportingbet Classic and close fourth to Response in the 2010 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes.

Sister Madly later transferred to the Flemington stables of John Sadler after she finished dead last behind Atomic Force in last year’s The Galaxy in the wet at Randwick and was purchased for $1 million at last year’s National Broodmare sale by Segenhoe Stud.

It has proven to be a successful move by her new connections so far too with Sister Madly winning two of her four starts for Sadler.

Things started with a first-up victory in the Group 3 How Now Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield last September before Sister Madly went on to run a brave second to superstar Sepoy in the Group 1 Manikato Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley.

Another second, this one only a nose away from More Joyous in the Group 2 Tristarc Stakes (1400m) was to follow before Sister Madly was last seen narrowly hanging on to win the Group 2 Salinger Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on Victoria Derby Day.

After a lengthy break during which Sister Madly suffered issues with her throat she is looking on track to resume racing ahead of another big spring in Melbourne, Sadler hoping she can successfully defend her title first-up in the $150,000 How Now Stakes at Caulfield on September 22.

“She had a throat problem but she seems to be over that,” Sadler said.

“We’re pleased with her so hopefully she’s in for a good spring.

“She will probably kick off in the How Now Stakes, a race she won 12 months ago.”

Sadler is also considering the $1 million Group 1 Patinack Farm Classic (1200m) for Sister Madly this year at Flemington on Emirates Stakes Day, Saturday November 10, a race won by Black Caviar for the past two years.

“She will have a fairly similar campaign to last year and probably run in the ($750,000 Group 1 ) Manikato (Stakes over 1200m on October 26) but instead of the Salinger, with Black Caviar not here we might head to the Patinack,” he said.
