Maybe Discreet has won the 2012 Edward Manifold Stakes at Flemington Racecourse during today’s Turnbull Stakes Day.
The Shamardal filly has won three of her six race starts and has earned more than $215,000 in prize money.
Maybe Discreet won the 2012 Edward Manifold Stakes by a nose in front of fast finishing Member’s Joy, who finished second, and third place-getter Commanding Jewel.
The three-year-old was paying odds of $5 to win the 2012 Edward Manifold Stakes at bookmaker.com.au, while Commanding Jewelwas the $3.10 race favourite.
Trainer Phillip Stokes’ stable representative, Kate McMahon, will now look towards the Group 1 Thousand Guineas with Maybe Discreet.
The $500,000 Thousand Guineas will take place at Caulfield Racecourse on Wednesday October 17, 2012.
“Ten days to go and she’ll pull up well I have no doubt,” McMahon said.
Maybe Discreet finished fifth at her only previous Melbourne start at Moonee Valley in August before returning to top form back home at Morphettville Racecourse.
“(We)brought her back to Morphettville and put the blinkers on and she was an entirely different horse,” Mcmahon said.
The stable representative was thrilled when jockey Luke Nolen accepted the ride aboard Maybe Discreet in the 2012 Edward Manifold Stakes.
“We were delighted,” she said.
“He hadn’t ridden her before but he did his homework.”
Nolen was impressed with the filly’s effort after the 2012 Edward Manifold Stakes was run.
“(She)showed a bit of determination to hold them off at the furlong,” Nolen said.
