Jemerica After 2014 Cockram Stakes Start

A nice win at Caulfield over the weekend has trainer Michael Moroney hoping for a Cockram Stakes 2014 start with his up-and-coming filly Jemerica next month back at the track.

The three-year-old daughter of Captain Rio enjoyed her third win at start number 11 on Saturday with Jemerica beating them home by a tidy margin in the $80,000 The Champagne Pommery Masters Handicap (1200m).

Backing up from a second over 1100m at Caulfield behind Thiamandi, Jemerica ($12) beat home the Greg Eurell-trained Paddy’s Gem ($5.50) by two and a half lengths in the three-year-old fillies’ handicap.

The form of her lead-up race was further franked at the meeting too with the Adelaide-trained winner Thiamandi scoring an upset in the Group 3 Bletchingly Stakes (1200m).

In third though in Jemerica’s race was then the Robbie Griffiths-trained Hot Mama ($8) while the $5 favourite Copper, prepared by John O’Shea, could only manage to finish five lengths away sixth.

Jemerica was originally to be ridden with cover off the speed but she killed the jump from out wide and flew to the front forcing apprentice hoop Damien Thornton to ride her on pace for her all-the-way effort.

Thornton’s ability to adapt after Moroney had earlier instructed him to ride Jemerica “right back” earned him praise from the trainer.

“Look it was a great ride because only experienced riders do what he (Thornton) did,” Moroney said.

“We told him to ride the horse right back to be quite honest, when she flew the gates he just used his brains and did the right thing. It was perfect.

“She always travelled but in saying that (Thornton) could have ridden to instruction and dragged her right back you know.

“Usually with apprentices, you give them instructions and they try to ride to them and sometimes to the determent but no, it was a very heady ride.”

Moroney is now looking ahead to bigger and better things this Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival with Jemerica who is yet to be tested in black-type company.

He’s got her earmarked for a shot at the $150,000 Group 3 WW Cockram Stakes (1200m) at the new season’s opening Group 1 meeting, Memsie Stakes Day on August 30 back at her pet track.

“Always on the track she looks like she’s group class, I think we’ll get a chance to get black type with her. She’s an extremely well-bred filly,” Racing Victoria reported Moroney as saying.

Jemerica though might still need to get her rating up to make the field in the mares’ set weights plus penalties clash.

“All going well we’ll head to the Cockram but we’ve got to make that race though,” Moroney said.

“Sometimes it can be difficult to make those races but (her run today) was really good.”

If she makes that and runs well the next logical step would then be the $220,000 Group 2 Let’s Elope Stakes (1400m) at Flemington Racecourse on September 13.

The better Let’s Elope Stakes graduates often go on to run during the Melbourne Cup Carnival then on Victoria Derby Day in the $500,000 Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m).

Stay tuned to on all the latest on Jemerica’s new season campaign and how far she goes.
