Will 2012 Myer Classic Be Sweet for Pear Tart?

The notion of Pear Tart being just a wet-track specialist has been put to bed and the Patinack-owned mare has emerged as a genuine contender heading into Saturday’s Group 1 2012 Myer Classic (1600m) at Flemington.

Pear Tart

Pear Tart is chasing a second Group 1 win in the Myer Classic on Saturday

The consistent mare ran second to the mighty impressive Streama in the Tristarc Stakes but can she turn the tables and claim a second Group 1 title this weekend?

She was rated a double-figure chance when saluting in the Tattersall’s Tiara in Brisbane during the winter but has been given far more respect here.

The John Thompson-trained mare is at $8.00 for the mares’ event where she will line up against the likes of Streama, Yosei, Red Tracer and Secret Admirer.

So can Pear Tart make it an even sweeter spring or Nathan Tinkler after All Too Hard’s success? Keep reading for all the key stats and the pros and cons about her heading into the weekend.
