Commanding Jewel Has 2013 Sydney Autumn Carnival Target

Thousand Guineas winner Commanding Jewel will be set for the 2013 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival rather than race in her home state of Victoria as trainer Leon Corstens wants to look after the horse he describes as “a bit special.”

Commanding Jewel

Commanding Jewel will be targeted at autumn races in Sydney rather than Melbourne

The three-quarter sister to Atlantic Jewel is still in the spelling paddock following a successful spring campaign and Corstens is in no rush to get her up and running.

“They are not machines and I can’t have her up and running for the Melbourne carnival if she’s still in the paddock,” Corstens said.

The daughter of Commands had the racing community excited prior to the spring when she won a barrier trial by 12 lengths in July and then won the first two starts of her career in convincing fashion.

She then went on to finish a narrow second in the Group 3 Thousand Guineas Prelude and third in the Group 2 Edward Manifold Stakes before disposing of her rivals by three lengths in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas.

Corstens is yet to define an autumn target for Commanding Jewel but said there a number of options she could head towards including the prestigious 2013 Doncaster Mile.

“The best three-year-old fillies are always competitive in the Doncaster,” he said.

Bought for $205,000 at the 2011 Gold Coast Magic Millions Yearling Sale, Commanding Jewel has already paid back her price tag with three wins from five starts and a prize pool of over $400,000.

Corstens also said he is hopeful of testing the exciting filly up to distances of 2000m in the autumn.

It might not be peak racing season but there is plenty of exciting summer action taking place this weekend including the Brisbane Summer Series for which the best odds can be found at
