Eloping Faces 2014 Blue Diamond Stakes Test

Eloping will have her Blue Diamond Stakes test when she runs in the Listed Blue Diamond Preview (Fillies) this Saturday January 25, 214.

The Choisir filly will be having her second ever race start when she runs in the 2014 Blue Diamond Preview (Fillies) after starting her career with a bang last month.

Eloping won her first barrier trail by six lengths, before winning the $17,500 BJC Members Celebration Maiden by two and a half lengths.

Co-trainer Peter Morgan believes that her debut win could mark great things to come for Eloping.

“There’s good form out of the race (at Bendigo) but I’m not getting carried away with her yet,” Morgan said.

“We’ll see what happens on Saturday.

“She ran good time that day so it’s possible that she is a bit above average.”

While Eloping will get her chance on the big stage stable mate Star Rolling is still not a certainly for Saturday’s race day.

Star Rolling will resume in either the 2014 John Dillon Stakes or the Group 2 Australia Stakes.

Star Rolling is nominated for both the Listed John Dillon Stakes at Caulfield, as well as the Group 2 Australia Stakes at Moonee Valley on Friday night.

“He’ll gallop in the morning and then we’ll decide which way we’re going to go,” Morgan said.

“We’re keeping both races alive at this stage. Whether he’s up to that or not, I’m not sure yet.

“I think he’s got plenty of ability but whether he’s up to Group One at that class, I’m not sure about that.”

Star Rolling has won four of his seven race starts and has earned more than $174,000 in prize money during his horse racing career.
