Carmody Hoping for 2013 Inglis Classic Start with Everage

Randwick horseman Craig Carmody has his fingers crossed there’s an early scratching from tomorrow’s Inglis Classic 2013 at Rosehill allowing his nicely-bred filly Everage to gain her debut run.

A bumper field of 14 starters plus four emergencies were accepted for this year’s edition of the $250,000 Inglis Classic (1200m), the first spare being Everage.

Purchased for $20,000 from the 2012 Inglis Classic sales in Sydney Everage is a daughter of 2004 Golden Slipper runner-up Zizou and while her trainer isn’t sure she’s quite up to that class, Carmody is hoping he can get her to the races soon and see what she’s capable of.

Victorian trainer Mick Kent is a part-owner of Everage having formed a strong association with the rival horseman when the duo worked together in Singapore years ago, and Carmody admits they have both been targeting her for this race from the very beginning.

“How this came about is that we were at the (Inglis) Classic sale together looking at yearlings,” he said.

“This filly came up and we both liked her.

“She captured our attention and only went for $20,000, so we thought we’d have some fun.

“We primarily bought her thinking she would be perfect for this race and here we are, we have nearly got there, just need to get a start in the field.”

While she will race under Carmody, Kent did all the early prep work with Everage before she arrived at her current trainer’s Sydney base.

“He (Kent) took her home when we bought her,” Carmody said.

“He broke her in and educated her and got her going.”

Everage has had just the one trial so far when third over 735m at Randwick in December and she could be on debut tomorrow if a horse withdraws from the Inglis Classic field.

“She has trialled well and has showed us a bit of ability,” Carmody said.

“It is a very big ask, though, having her first start in a race of this quality. But you only get one chance with these restricted races for sales graduates.

“If she happens to get in and gets some luck in running, I think she will run a good race.”

In the Inglis Classic betting markets Bjorn Baker’s Snippetson colt Fuerza, coming off a second on debut in the Inglis Nursery, is the $3 favourite.

Meanwhile Everage is paying $19 with Corey Brown on standby for the ride.
