2014 Crown Oaks Looming as Target for Go Indy Go During Spring

Trainer Leon Macdonald has confirmed impressive two-year-old Go Indy Go has returned to work at his Morphettville stables ahead of a busy 2014 Spring Racing Carnival preparation, likely to be geared towards the Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m) on November 6th.

A standout performer in two-year-old events in her maiden racing preparation, Go Indy Go claimed two second placings in rated events first-up before gaining ballot-free entry into the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) with a victory in the Group 3 Sires’ Produce (1400m) in South Australia on April 12th.

Producing an exceptional turn of foot to break through for a maiden victory at the highest level of Australian racing in the Champagne Stakes, Macdonald said while initially targeting specifically the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) in October, he believes the Bernardini filly is building as a legitimate staying contender and will press on to the Oaks if successful in earlier events.

“She had a few weeks in the paddock and is in great order,” Macdonald told AAP.

“She is such an athlete. She could be the best I’ve ever had.

“We haven’t really put her program in place. A likely starting point is the Quezette Stakes then on to the Thousand Guineas Prelude and the Manifold before the Thousand Guineas.

“And after that we will get her ready for the Oaks.”

Unlucky to finish second in the Listed Cinderella Stakes (1050m) when blocked for a run in the final straight on debut on March 10th, Go Indy Go produced a keen final straight sprint to finish second to Team Hawkes runner London Lolly in the Group 3 Breeders’ Stakes (1200m) on March 29th before securing back-to-back victories in her two most recent appearances on course.

Stamping her claims as a serious Group 1 contender over the 2014 Spring, Go Indy Go has opened as and maintained status as outright second favourite for success in early betting markets for the 2014 Thousand Guineas; currently offered at odds of $7, behind Blue Diamond Stakes champion Earthquake ($5.50).

Clearly favouring the step-up in distance from race to race throughout her autumn preparation, the filly out of Elegant Eagle is currently sole occupant of the top line of betting for success in the 2014 Crown Oaks at a quote of $6 at leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.
