Placid Ark Stakes 2012 Duo for Miller

Top local trainer Simon A Miller could saddle-up two three-year-olds in the 2012 Placid Arc Stakes at Ascot Racecourse this Saturday with both Miss Bux and Hard Ball Get being considered for the black type feature.

The sole stakes race held in WA this weekend, nominations and the subsequent field for the $80,000 Listed Placid Ark Stakes (1200m), a nice lead-up to the Group 3 Lee Steer Classic (1400m) on December 15, are due for release shortly.

Early favourite for the race was Trevor Andrew’s Flying Pegasus colt The Rising, the gun youngster extending their undefeated career winnings to four from four at Ascot in the Perth Handicap on November 17.

The Rising however jarred up after that win forcing connections to send them to the paddock early, opening the Placid Ark right up.

Likely to feature in the mix however is the Miller-trained duo of General Nediym Miss Bux and their slightly more experienced stablemate Hard Ball Get who have had only one and two career runs respectively.

Miller is in flying form having prepared last Saturday’s fast finishing Winterbottom Stakes runner-up Power Princess who could be Singapore bound for next year’s KrisFlyer International Sprint after her eye-catching effort behind the unbeaten Barakey on the weekend.

Hoping to continue the Perth Summer Racing Carnival success this Saturday Miller confirmed his promising grey Aussie Rules gelding Hard Ball Get would resume in the Placid Ark with Miss Bux now a chance of joining him.

Hard Ball Get is undefeated to date having won their opening two career starts back-to-back at Belmont Park back in July.

After a slashing two and a half-length winning effort over 1200m on debut in a Westspeed 2YO Nursery Handicap they backed up and overcame a wide barrier 10 of 12 draw in another Westspeed Nursery this time over 1300m before being sent out for a spell.

They showed they were ready for their three-year-old return with a blistering six length barrier trial win at Lark Hill over 950m on November 19, Miller looking forward to seeing them come back.

“He’s going better than he was last time in,” Miller said.

Miss Bux meanwhile could also be in the Placid Ark Stakes field after her successful debut at Bunbury on November 15 when jockey Patrick Carbery guided her to an all-the-way, one and a half length win over the Grant Williams-trained Western Blaze.

“I’ll put Miss Bux in (the Placid Ark) as well and see if she gets a run,” Miller said.
