Platelet Vies for Group 1 Double in The Goodwood 2013

Darren Weir’s flying Victorian mare Platelet will stay on in Adelaide this weekend vying for a Group 1 double at Morphettville with the Robert Sangster Stakes champ to contest the 2013 The Goodwood.

The Strategic four-year-old has thrived in South Australia running a good second-up second behind fellow Melbourne visitor Kulgrinda in the Group 3 RN Irwin Stakes (1100m) before backing up to break her Group 1 maiden status in the Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) on April 27.

Platelet will now look to complete the same Adelaide Autumn Racing Carnival double achieved by the undefeated queen Black Caviar 12 months ago when she returns to the track this Saturday in the $500,000 Group 1 The Distinctive Homes Goodwood (1200m).

Early Goodwood betting before the final field announcement later this morning has Peter Moody’s Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes winner Moment Of Change at the top of the markets.

Platelet is also well fancied with her nice record at the track, her strong win over many of the same contenders in the Robert Sangster and word of how well she pulled through that win.

“She pulled up terrific,” Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock’s Darren Dance, managing part-owner, said.

“It was always the plan to go to the Sangster third up and if she was competitive at that level the Goodwood was the next step.”

Following The Goodwood the plan is send Platelet home for a well-earned break before bringing her back for the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival where she will target the season’s sprints before the 2014 Oakleigh Plate next February.

“After the Goodwood she’ll have a break and we’ll probably bring her back for the sprint races at the Caulfield Cup Carnival and Melbourne Cup Carnival in late spring,” Dance said.

“If all goes well there we’ll freshen her up and have a crack at the Oakleigh Plate.”
