Possible Australian Oaks 2013 Target for Strutt Stakes Winner Green Roller

David Hayes’ progressive young filly Green Roller could vie for a lucrative Oaks double this campaign with both the 2013 Tasmanian and Australian Oaks on the cards after her nice win in the Listed Strutt Stakes (2100m) at Hobart on Sunday.

The Flying Spur three-year-old scored her second career victory from eight starts relishing her first look at 2100m when beating home fellow raider in the Darren Weir-trained First Bloom by an easy two lengths in the Tasmanian Summer Racing Carnival feature.

It was a nice come from behind effort from the Chad Schofield-ridden Green Roller who lead an all Victorian trifecta – Anthony Freedman’s Rock Of Gibraltar filly Papillon a long neck in third.

“We had a nice run in the race but the pace wasn’t strong and I was wary of the leader getting too far in front,” Schofield said.

“I had to be patient but once I pulled her out into clear running she was really strong to the line,” he said.”

Connections of the Victorian-based filly, whose other win was over 1750m at Pakenham last month, are now keen to step her up in class and get some more black type under her belt.

Green Roller is likely to back up from her Strutt Stakes success in the $100,000 Listed Tasmanian Oaks (2100m) at Launceston on February 20.

From there a trip to Sydney for a shot at the $550,000 Group 1 ATC Australian Oaks (2400m) at Royal Randwick on April 20 will then be considered.

“She’s always indicated she wants this trip,” Hayes’ stable representative Gary Fennessy said on Sunday.

“She had already proven to be competitive over distances up to 1800m but we were quite confident she would handle the extra distance of this race.

“We’ll leave her here for the Oaks at Launceston now. If she comes out of this trip OK she could end up in Sydney.”

Hayes took Rock Robster along the same path last summer, the daughter of Fastnet Rock winning the Tasmanian Oaks before running sixth (of eight) to Streama three starts later in the Australian Oaks.

“We won the Oaks with Rock Robster last year and then took her up to Sydney but she didn’t handle the wet tracks but we could do the same with this filly if she is still going well after the Tasmanian Oaks,” Fennessy added.

Apprentice jockey Schofield was full of post-race praise for Green Roller and was confident she would be the one to hand Hayes back-to-back Tasmanian Oaks victories.

“That will be perfect for her. She’ll be hard to beat there,” he said of the Launceston feature.
