2013 Thousand Guineas Tango for Price’s Daughter

The same connections that enjoyed this year’s Blue Diamond Stakes win with Miracles Of Life are now setting their sights on the Thousand Guineas 2013 later in the year with the progressive Mick Price-trained Tango’s Daughter.

The rising three-year-old Redoute’s Choice filly was disappointing on debut when dead last, beaten over 22 lengths by the Adelaide-trained Miracles Of Life in the Listed Blue Diamond Fillies Preview (1000m) back on Australia Day.

Memories of that thrashing, which saw Tango’s Daughter immediately sent for a spell to mature, have now all but been forgotten after she enjoyed her second win on the trot at Sandown on Wednesday.

After spending just over four months on the sidelines Tango’s Daughter resumed at Geelong on June 6 and was an impressive four and a half length winner over 1000m in a juvenile’s maiden.

She posted another win this week this time at Sandown Hillside on a Heavy (8) course with Craig Newitt guiding her to a similarly easy four length victory over Peter Moody’s last start Cranbourne winner and $2 favourite Il Diamante in the Equine Haven Racehorse Spelling Plate (1000m).

That victory excited owners enough for them to confirm Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival hopes for the young filly with her major target to be the $500,000 Group 1 Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield on October 16.

Price’s Racing Manager Luke Wilkinson confirmed the Thousand Guineas assignment while signing Tango’s Daughter praise for her recent efforts.

“She’s a lovely type; you can only imagine how much she would have made had she gone through a sale ring because she’s so correct and such a good looking horse,” Wilkinson said.

“She was obviously disappointing at her first start but she’s come back a bigger and stronger horse.

“The plan is now to go for a spell and then bring her back and set her on a Thousand Guineas preparation where she’ll keep away from Miracles Of Life.”

Another person confident Tango’s Daughter has what it takes to step up to Group 1 company and the mile is jockey Newitt who has ridden her for both of her wins to date.

“She’s always shown us good ability and the only blunder in her book was at her first start where she was pretty shinny (shin sore),” Newitt said on Wednesday.

“We came here today pretty confident, it was just a question of whether she would get through the wet but she jumped well, she travelled well and she got through the ground no problem.

“I think she’s up to winning a nice race during the spring, she’s already improved both mentally and physically and with a break I’m sure she can improve again.

“She’ll run a mile on her ear.

“She’s a big filly and covers a lot of ground in her stride so it (the Thousand Guineas) would be the logical target.”
