2013 Sydney Autumn Carnival Group 1s Possibility for Nechita

Patinack’s boom filly Nechita is making a promising recovery from knee surgery and could still play a part in the 2013 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.


Nechita is showing promising signs following knee surgery

The exciting three-year-old required an operation following her blistering Group 1 win in the Coolmore Stud Stakes in November which trainer John Thompson attributed to a hard Flemington surface.

But Thompson is positive about the outcome of the surgery, in which she had bone chips removed, and has outlined the 2013 TJ Smith and the 2013 Galaxy as possible targets.

“The Galaxy and TJ Smith could be on the agenda if all goes well,” Thompson said.

Thompson has previously described Nechita as the “fastest horse” he has trained and she has certainly backed up that claim in the early stages of her career.

The daughter of Fastnet Rock stormed on to the scene in June with a 3 ½ length win at Warwick Farm and backed it up in August with a similarly dominant performance in the Group 3 Silver Shadow Stakes.

After starting as favourite in the Group 1 Golden Rose, she was stood on in running and struggled over the longer distance of 1400m before returning to her best in the Coolmore Stud Stakes.

If Nechita does make it to the TJ Smith she is set to take on some of the best sprinters in the country with Queensland’s multiple Group 1 placegetter Buffering one already confirmed as targeting the Group 1 event.

Trainer Robert Heathcote is still striving to win a Group 1 with his stable star and is adopting a new strategy of giving the Mossman gelding barrier trials rather than unleashing him fresh as he has done in his most recent campaigns.
