Possible Group 1 bound filly Jazz Song is one of the notable hopes nominated for the fillies and mares’ Glenlogan Park Stakes 2014 at Doomben Racecourse this Saturday.
Mick Price’s three-year-old daughter of Fastnet Rock is one of a bumper 24 nominations taken for this year’s $150,000 Group 3 Glenlogan Park Stakes (1350m).
It is a race many female gallopers are using early during their Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival campaign, plenty heading towards the $500,000 Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) at Eagle Farm on June 21.
Jazz Song is one such runner looking to earn a possible 2014 Tattersall’s Tiara call-up later this prep, the youngster having won two of her five starts to date.
Winner of the Group 3 Typhoon Tracy Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley in February she was last seen running second to the since retired Miracles Of Life in the Group 2 Euclase Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville from May 3.
She kicks off her Brisbane preparation in the Glenlogan then, Price hoping to see enough to warrant continuing on the Tattersall’s path likely via the $200,0j00 Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes (1400m) on Queensland Oaks Day, May 31.
The top-rated Glenlogan Park Stakes nominee this year meanwhile is the Simon Miller-trained Perth raider Platinum Rocker.
Group 1 performed back home having run second to Luckygray in the Railway Stakes over the Ascot mile last November, the Love A Dane six-year-old raced in Queensland first-up on May 3 at the Gold Coast.
There she ran a decent third behind possible Stradbroke Handicap chance Srikandi in the Listed Silk Stocking (1200m) in the wet, an effort she’ll be out to improve on going up in distance here.
Silk Stocking winner Srikandi is another headline Glenlogan Park Stakes nominee for Saturday, the Dubawi filly having backed up last weekend at Doomben to win the Listed Junamo Stakes (1200m).
She easily accounted for her rivals again there with Glen Boss signing her praises post-race, Ciaron Maher’s Victorian filly being considered for a shot at the $1.36 million Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) on June 4.
Also in the mix is the Peter Moody-trained Plucky Belle, the Mossman five-year-old after her first win since a Group 3 Flemington effort over 1400m on Melbourne Cup Day last year.
She ran in Perth’s Railway Stakes after that but was 12th in a disappointing effort she was spelled immediately after.
Plucky Belle returned on Marcy 29 and has had three top four finishes including her most recent effort on May 3 when runner-up to Aerobatics in the Group 3 Darley Crown (1300m) at Hawkesbury.
Another Group 1 performer is Joe Pride’s Kiwi import Chintz, the Savabeel four-year-old last seen running second in New Zealand’s Group 1 Easter Handicap (1600m) at Ellerslie on April 12.
Other notable hopes include the John Thompson-trained Peron coming via a BTC Cup fifth, Gai Waterhouse’s Hawkesbury Guineas sixth placed filly Northern Glory, Stuart Kendrick’s Bribie Handicap third placed Doubtfilly and the John O’Shea-trained La Pieta who ran second in the Silk Stocking last time out.
