Autumn Group 1 Goals for Soft Sand

Soft Sand trainer Colin Little will be disappointed if the four-year-old mare doesn’t claim a Group 1 title in her next preparation and will aim her at events at both the 2013 Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival and the 2013 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Soft Sand

Soft Sand will be aimed at Group 1 events in both Melbourne and Sydney in the autumn

The talented daughter of Dansili has recently returned to work after a short spell following a spring campaign that culminated with a runner-up finish in the Group 1 Myer Classic at Flemington on November 3.

Little has not yet cemented full autumn plan for Soft Sand but outlined the 2013 Oakleigh Plate at Caulfield as a possibility and told AAP she is likely to contest the Group 1 2013 Coolmore Classic at Rosehill.

“She’ll certainly finish up in Sydney and go for the Coolmore Classic,” he said.

Little described the four-year-old as a “Group 1 mare” and is excited about her autumn prospects.

The Caulfield trainer also said the 2013 Doncaster Mile is a possible option for the horse who has placed at both Group 1 and Group 2 level.

Many trainers are looking to target the Doncaster including the Craig Carmody-trained Single who will trial at Randwick on Monday.

The five-year-old was in line to contest this year’s Doncaster but broke the cannon bone in his off-hind leg following a terrific start to his autumn campaign.

The lightly-raced gelding won three consecutive races including the Listed Sky High Stakes (1900m) and in doing so took his career record to six wins from 10 starts.

Also potential Doncaster starters are Saturday’s Kingston Town Classic winner Luckygray and spruik Melbourne filly Commanding Jewel.
