The BMW 2013 in sights of Quintessential

A disappointing spring campaign hasn’t dampened John Sargent’s ambitions with New Zealand mare Quintessential who will be aimed at the Group 1 2013 BMW (2400m) at the 2013 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival.

Quintessential will be aimed at the Group 1 BMW in the autumn

The daughter of Fast ‘n’ Famous was a top performer at the Queensland winter carnival as a three-year-old, winning the Group 1 Queensland Oaks and finishing second to Brambles in the Queensland Derby.

On those results it was fair to expect she could measure up during the spring but after failing to make an impact in two early spring starts she returned to New Zealand.

Rather than push through when Quintessential was failing to measure up, Sargent elected to give her some time in the paddock which has left him optimistic about her autumn prospects.

“She didn’t make the transition from her three-year-old season and the only option was to ease up on her,” Sargent told New Zealand’s The Informant.

“She’s really strengthened up and I’m looking forward to getting her back to the races.”

The four-year-old has impressed Sargent in trackwork and will begin her autumn campaign in the Group 1 Waikato Draught Sprint on February 9.

Sargent has stables at Warwick Farm and is hoping she can again travel across the ditch to take on some of Australia’s best stayers at the Autumn Carnival.

“The ultimate would be to get her up for a race like the BMW,” Sargent said.

The BMW will take place on April 6 at Rosehill as part of the biggest day of the autumn.

Apart from the prestigious staying test in the BMW, there are four other Group 1 races including the Golden Slipper and the George Ryder Stakes.
