Pussy Willow Begins Australian Spring in 2012 Furious Stakes

Promising New Zealand filly will fly to Sydney today ahead of her first Australian hitout in the Group 2 2012 Furious Stakes (1400m) at Warwick Farm on Saturday.

The 2012 Thousand Guineas-nominated three-year-old will be having just the fourth start of her career on Saturday.

Trained by Stephen McKee, Pussy Willow began her career with consecutive victories in January and returned lacking fitness to finish fourth on a heavy track earlier this month.

McKee is confident the horse has improved considerably for Saturday’s run but is concerned that the small straight at Warwick Farm could disadvantage his young charge.

“It’s a track I think will play against her. Once she gets to Rosehill and Randwick it will be a different story,” McKee said.

The daughter of O’Reilly will get her chance at Sydney’s premier track in the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1500m) on September 22 and the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) on October 6 at Randwick.

With Patinack’s star filly Nechita bypassing the race to go to the Golden Rose, the Furious Stakes has become a far more open contest.

Among the top entires are Golden Slipper fourth placegetter Doubtfilly and Silver Shadow Stakes second and third Meidung and Dear Demi.

Dear Demi hit the line particularly well in the Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) and should appreicate the extra 200 metres provided this Saturday.

With Nechita absent, Roll The Bones will fly the flag for Patinack in the three-year-old fillies’ feature.

The daughter of Red Ransom won by a length at Canterbury on August 29 and has been nominated for the Spring Champion Stakes and Thousand Guineas.
