Reisling Stakes to Determine Path for Lucky Raquie

Having entered the talented two-year-old in nominations for both the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) and Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) in early April, trainer Gerald Ryan will let results in today’s Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens determine the course taken by Lucky Raquie this preparation.

Having hit strong form when comfortably claiming the Listed Black Opal Stakes (1200m) in Canberra last time out, Ryan told TVN he has an idea of which avenue Lucky Raquie will take, but is yet to be convinced.

“I’ve always thought she was more of a Sires or Champagne horse, but if she came out and put her hand up in this race then I’d have to look at the Slipper” Ryan said.

“She’s a good tough filly, eats her food. She’s a big strong girl.”

Opening her career with a competitive third amongst classy company in the Listed Gimcrack Stakes (1000m) in October, Lucky Raquie appeared to have lost form when sixth of seven in the Group 3 Widden Stakes (1100m) first-up this year before returning with Black Opal victory.

“She’s done well since” Ryan added.

“The timing of this race is perfect too.

“If she runs extremely well we can go to the Slipper in two weeks, or the Sires is three weeks away, so either way it fits in.”

Confirmed to line up against Golden Slipper favourites Earthquake and Mossfun in the Reisling Stakes, Lucky Raquie is currently given little hope in betting markets for success in this afternoon’s Group 2 for fillies, featured at long $41 odds ($7 for a place) but will leave from the ideal barrier 2. is currently offering the best odds on all Rosehill Gardens races today, including the Group 2 Reisling Stakes!
