May’s Thousand Guineas 2013 Dream

Darren Weir’s impressive weekend winner May’s Dream has earned herself a shot at the 2013 Thousand Guineas next month, her Ballarat-based trainer hoping she can emulate some of the success from her outstanding dam She’s Archie.

Weir prepared She’s Archie throughout her career including the mare’s brave second place finish to the magnificent Makybe Diva in the 2003 Melbourne Cup.

Now he’s eyeing more Group 1 prize money with New Approach filly May’s Dream, a daughter of She’s Archie who Weir still holds very fond thoughts of.

“She came along at the right time of my career,” Weir said of She’s Archie speaking to Racing Victoria.

“We’d made the move to Ballarat and spent a lot of money and then she came along which meant more horses came along.

“She was a great horse to us and it’s great to get one of her that looks like it’s got a bit of potential.”

Three-year-old May’s Dream has had four starts to date producing two thirds and two victories.

The second of her two wins came on Sunday at Caulfield’s Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes Day.

Ridden by Nicholas Hall for the first time she put in a fine display to defeat fellow Thousand Guineas-bound Bulbula by one and three quarter lengths in the $80,000 Procal Dairies Handicap (1400m).

“There was a slight little concern whether there was going to be enough pace for her to be able to win the race, but she began a bit better than expected and Nick gave her a beautiful ride. She was really strong to the line,” Weir said of the weekend win.

That effort put her right in the frame for the $500,000 Group 1 Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield on Wednesday October 16, a goal Weir has had on the horizon for some time.

“It (the Guineas) has been the plan all along,” he said.

“The only little query with her is she’s a late foal, she’s a November foal and probably looking at her in the yard there doesn’t look a lot of her, so how far she gets into the campaign I’m not sure but I think she’ll get to the Thosand Guineas alright.”

Latest Thousand Guineas odds are led by Peter Snowden’s dual Group 1 winner Guleph paying around $2.80.

May’s Dream meanwhile has stormed up the markets and is now equal $7 third pick with Tea Rose Stakes runner-up Arabian Gold.

Robert Smerdon’s consistent Street Sense filly Politeness occupies the second line of betting at $6.
