Princess Series Audition For Short Shift

Matthew Smith-trained Short Shift will contest the Princess Series during the Spring Racing Carnival if she impresses in the Share Care Directors Sprint (1000m) at Warwick Farm this Saturday.

Short Shift scored a dominant four and a half-length victory in the Miss Finland Handicap (1000m) at Muswellbrook on debut in May and although she faces a significant rise in class Smith is confident that she is good enough to be a contender.

“Her trial was good at Gosford last week and I’m really happy with her,” Smith told TVN.

“She’s a filly that is hard to judge because she is very lazy at home, she has never been very enthusiastic about her work at home.

“It’s not until you take her to the trials or races that you can see what she can do and from what I’ve seen she will be competitive on Saturday.”

If Short Shift produces on the weekend Smith plans to bypass the Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) to concentrate on the Princess Series.

The Princess Series is a four-race series for three-year-old fillies run that includes the Group 3 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m), Group 2 Furious Stakes (1400m), Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1500m) and Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m).

The Share Care Directors Sprint is set to be the most exciting race at Warwick Farm on Saturday with undefeated Snitzel’s Jewel and Paul Messara-trained Buttons also in the field.

Short Shift ($2.10) has opened as a clear favourite from Buttons ($4.20) and Snitzel’s Jewel ($7) with the rest of the field available at double figure odds.
