Quayside The Unknown In 2013 Crown Oaks Field

David Payne-trained Quayside is an unknown quantity heading into the 2013 Crown Oaks field and the veteran trainer admits that is looking forward to seeing just how good the filly is in the Group 1 event at Flemington this afternoon.

Quayside has raced consistently in Sydney this campaign and was finally able to record the maiden race win of her preparation in the Canterbury League Club Handicap (1900m) at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday – a win that earnt her a trip to Melbourne for the 2013 Crown Oaks.

Payne, who has always had a high opinion of the daughter of Street Cry, told Sky Racing HQ that Quayside relished her first opportunity over a staying trip and did enough to suggest that she was good enough to be competitive over 2500 metres at Group 1 level.

“We were always trying to get her up to a trip and unfortunately we never got around to it until two or three weeks,” Payne said.

“We always thought that she was going to be an Oaks filly and she proved that the first time we stepped her up over the ground and she had a soft kill.”

Quayside is an outsider in 2013 Crown Oaks betting markets and Payne admits that it is a massive step-up in class but is hopeful that the three-year-old may just be good enough to give him his first ever victory in the Group 1 event.

“We are stepping up in class and it is a much stronger field but she is going in there a little bit unknown,” Payne said.

“She might be better than we think she is.

“She is a tough filly and nothing worries her; that is one of the bonuses with her.”

The only other runner in the 2013 Crown Oaks field that Quayside has previously faced is David Vandyke-trained Arabian Gold and the Dubawi filly defeated Quayside by six and a half lengths in a handicap event at Royal Randwick in July.

Payne said that Quayside never had a chance in that race and has shown plenty of improvement in her three subsequent starts.

“That was flattering for Arabian Gold because we rode her cold that day and we would have given her twelve or thirteen lengths,” Payne said.

“It wasn’t as bad as it looks.”
