Summah’s Touch after Hat-Trick in Belmont Classic 2013

This weekend Adam Durrant’s flying filly Summah’s Touch will shoot for a black type hat trick at Belmont Park, the dual stakes winner one of the top chances in the 2013 Belmont Classic.

A nicely-bred daughter of Blackfriars, Summah’s Touch is one of 13 three-year-olds engaged in Saturday’s $80,000 Listed Belmont Classic (2200m) in WA.

She’s also looking like one of the ones to beat after winning her opening two starts this time in.

Drawn in gate two for Saturday with apprentice jockey Ben Paterson retaining the ride, Summah’s Touch returned for the winter with a one and a half length win in the Listed Belmont Guineas (1600m).

It was a nice victory in an open field where another early favourite for Saturday, the Fred Kersley-trained Northpace, finished two and a half lengths away third in.

After the Guineas Summah’s Touch stepped up to 2000m and went back to her own kind with an easy two length win in the Listed Belmont Oaks on July 6.

Set to handle the 2200m for the Classic she will face many of the same fillies she defeated there including runner-up Elle On Friar, third placed Fashion Princess and fourth placegetter Pants On Friar.

It won’t be quite so easy however with some smart colts and geldings also in the mix including last-to-first Dayana Plate winner Northpace and the fellow Kersley-trained runner-up Go Tiger.

Unlike the lightly-raced Cape North gelding Northpace who sees the Classic distance for the first time on the weekend, Summah’s Touch has experience right up to the mile and a half having run a brave second to Moreish in the Group 3 W.A. Oaks (2400m) back in early April.

A $30,000 buy from the 2011 Magic Millions Perth Yearling Sales she has now won over $335,000 in prize money and will be out to add the $52,000 first prize for the Belmont Oaks winner to that on the weekend.
