Sydney Start for Myer Classic Winner Appearance

Guy Walter’s triple Group 1 winning mare Appearance is set to make her five-year-old debut at Warwick Farm on Saturday as she kicks off another Myer Classic campaign in Sydney’s $125,000 Group 3 Show County Quality (1200m).

A key feature on Warwick Stakes Day this weekend the Show County is a nice starting point for both Sydney and Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival-bound gallopers, and is set to feature a number of former Group 1 winners.

One of those is Walter’s reigning Myer Classic winner and reining NSW Miler of the Year Appearance.

After taking out the $500,000 Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) as a $40 roughie last Melbourne Cup Carnival, the daughter of Commands returned for a stellar autumn season in Sydney.

Her best runs were two more Group 1 successes when scoring the Coolmore Classic – Queen Of The Turf Stakes double over 1500m at Rosehill in March and April.

Last seen finishing a credible seventh to Sacred Falls on an unsuitably Heavy (10) track at Randwick in the Doncaster Mile on April 20, Appearance is now ready to kick off another spring season.

She’ll do that this Saturday at Warwick Farm in the 2013 Show County Quality where Walter is hopeful she can be competitive against a top class field that could include Waller’s Doncaster Mile winner Sacred Falls.

There was a chance Appearance would run instead in the $125,000 Group 3 Toy Show Quality (1300m) against a field of just fillies and mares, but Walter has confirmed she’ll accept for the open-sex race.

Her main aim this time in is again the mares-only feature on Victoria Derby Day, the Myer Classic, set to run on Saturday November 2.

“She has done well,” Walter said this week according to AAP.

“The plan is for her to have two or three runs in Sydney and then head to Melbourne for the Tristarc Stakes before the Myer.”

The $220,000 Group 2 Tristarc Stakes (1400m) runs at Caulfield on Caulfield Cup Day, October 19, and Appearance will be out to improve on her seventh to stablemate Streama in the race last year.

As for Walter’s other multiple Group 1 winner Streama, she too is set to return to racing at Saturday’s meet running in the $175,000 Group 2 Warwick Stakes (1400m).

Streama will have just a short Sydney carnival this year finishing with a run in the $500,000 Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) at Royal Randwick on October 5.

“The plan with Streama is to give her maybe three runs this spring and then give her a nice long spell with a view to next autumn,” Walter said.

He’ll also have Toydini heading towards a 2013 Epsom Handicap start this year, the four-year-old Bernardini gelding already a dual Group winner.

During the autumn they won the Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes (1500m) and the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) by impressive margins before their credible fourth to Usanity last time out in the Group 3 Johnnie Walker Frank Packer Plate when stepped up to 2000m for the first time on Sydney Cup Day.

They also run on Saturday with Walter confirming Peter Robl will replace the suspended Blake Shinn on them in the Show County; Streama to be ridden by Glen Boss for her Saturday start.

To back Appearance for a win this weekend and further into the spring head over to and bet with confidence knowing they are 100 percent Australian owned and operated.
