Lake Sententia Bypasses Brisbane Ahead of 2013 Caloundra Cup

Darren Weir’s flying Victorian mare Lake Sententia has been confirmed as a non-acceptor for the Saturday’s $200,000 Group 3 Tattersall’s Cup (2200m) at Eagle Farm and will instead be saved for the Caloundra Cup 2013 at the end of the month.

A winner of her past two races on the trot, four-year-old California Dane mare Lake Sententia was one of 16 stayers nominated for the Tattersall’s Cup on Tattersall’s Tiara Day in Brisbane this weekend which brings a close to the Group 1 meetings for another season.

She earned the entry in that race after her excellent form this time in including her last start win by three quarters of a length over De Fine Lago in a 2040m open handicap at Moonee Valley on June 5.

Before that she enjoyed two good runs in Adelaide when a close third to Star Of Giselle defeated only half a length in the Group 2 Queen Of The South Stakes (1600m) in April and her win in the Listed Centaurea Stakes (2009m) at Morphettville in May.

Lake Sententia also showed her class last season in Melbourne with back-to-back wins at her home track at Bendigo, a five length thriller at Moonee Valley during the Cox Plate Carnival and her second to Midnight Martini when stepped up to black type company for the first time in the Group 2 Matriarch Stakes (2000m) at Flemington on Emirates Stakes Day in November with Glen Boss in the saddle.

While the Tattersall’s Cup is off the agenda this weekend, Lake Sententia’s Queensland Winter Racing Carnival campaign isn’t over yet with Weir naming the lucrative $200,000 Listed Caloundra City Cup (2400m) at the Sunshine Coast on Saturday week, June 29, as her next assignment.

Weir will also still be represented in a major on Tattersall’s Tiara Day with his recent Moonee Valley runner-up Royal Bender to run in the $175,000 Group 3 W.J. Healy Stakes (1200m) where Gary Kennewell’s Eye Liner Stakes winner from last Saturday Conservatorium could back up.

Another 2013 Caloundra City Cup-bound mare meanwhile is the David Greene-trained New Zealander High Kin.

The High Chaparral five-year-old make her Australian debut last Saturday at Ipswich when the eye-catching runner-up beaten only a long neck by upset winner Anagold in the Listed Ipswich Cup (2150m), Te Rapa-based Greene confirming she would stay on in Queensland for the Caloundra Cup after that performance.
