2012 Villiers Stakes Mission for Kinnersley

Gai Waterhouse’s last start Goulburn Cup winner Kinnersley is set for their next mission in the Villiers Stakes 2012 in Sydney before a trip to Brisbane is on the cards this summer.


Goulburn Cup winner Kinnersley will race next up in the Villiers Stakes 2012

The Star Thoroughbreds-owned Al Maher six-year-old scored their sixth career success on November 25 when they carried a hefty 59kg to a second-up victory in the Goulburn Cup (1600m).

Now Denise Richards from Star Thoroughbreds has named the $175,000 Group 2 Villiers Stakes over the Warwick Farm mile on December 22 as the next logical target for the gelding.

“Kinnersley will most likely go to the Villiers,” Martin said.

After the Villiers Kinnersley is then likely to head to Queensland for the lucrative $200,000 Listed Bernborough Handicap (1615m) at Doomben Racecourse seven days later, joined for their trip by a fellow Star Thoroughbreds-owned juvenile that will target the $150,000 Group 3 BJ McLachlan Plate (1350m) at the same meeting.

“We may take Kinnersley and one of the two-year-olds to Doomben as we did last year for a stakes double,” Martin said.

“The BJ McLachlan for the two-year-old and Kinnersley for the Bernborough.”

Kinnersley campaigned in the Sunshine State during the winter travelling to Queensland after their Listed Lord Mayor’s Cup (2000m) victory at Rosehill in May.

They put in two good runs to see out their prep with a close second to Shenzhou Steeds in the Ipswich Cup (2150m) before coming within a length and a half when fifth to Ginga Dude in the Tatt’s Cup (2200m) at Eagle Farm.

Looking even further ahead Martin indicated that Kinnersley would make a nice candidate for the Stayers Cup at the Gold Coast Magic Millions Carnival in January.

“Kinnersley would then go on to the Stayers Cup on Magic Millions Day,” she said.
