Go Indy Go Primed for 2014 Champagne Stakes

While conceding he is yet to field a runner against any other nominee, South Australia-based trainer Leon Macdonald is confident in the chances of his star two-year-old Go Indy Go in this weekend’s Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) at Royal Randwick.

The standout performer of this season’s two-year-olds in the Adelaide circuit, Go Indy Go earned the right to line-up for this weekend’s final stop of the major two-year-old Triple Crown when strolling home to win the Group 3 Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) at Morphettville two weeks ago.

“She has travelled over by float with a stop-over at Caulfield and has settled in well” Macdonald told AAP on Monday.

“She is pretty relaxed and doesn’t do much wrong.”

Having performed well during her first piece of work at Randwick on Tuesday morning, Macdonald said that while yet to experience Go Indy Go’s leading rivals for the Champagne Stakes first hand, he is confident in the lead-up and condition of his entrant.

“It is hard to line her up and see where she fits. It’s a question of how good she is and how good they are” Macdonald said.

“But she has earned the chance at the Group One.”

Debuting with an impressive turn of foot to finish just off the pace in second in the Listed Sportingbet Stakes (1050m) on March 10th, the Bernardini filly overcame poor position rounding the final bend to again finish just behind talented Team Hawkes-trained filly London Lolly in the Group 2 Breeders’ Stakes (1200m) prior to her most recent Sires’ Produce triumph.

Owned by breeder Harry Perks, Go Indy Go has been confirmed to be partnered by up-and-coming jockey Chad Schofield in the 2014 Champagne Stakes.
