Go Indy Go To Resume in Danehill Stakes 2014

Thousand Guineas favourite Go Indy Go will kick off her Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival campaign this Saturday in the 2014 Danehill Stakes at Flemington Racecourse tackling a tougher assignment than originally planned.

Last week word was the Leon Macdonald & Andrew Gluyas-trained filly would resume racing on Makybe Diva Stakes Day in the $120,000 Listed Cap D’Antibes Stakes (1100m) against her own kind.

Connections of the Adelaide-based daughter of Bernardini however have changed her first-up assignment with the Group 1 winner to instead tackle Group 2 company and go up against the boys in the $200,000 Danehill Stakes (1200m).

“She’s been working well, we’re happy with her. We’re just excited for her to get going,” co-trainer Gluyas told the Racing Network, explaining the 1200m would suit her better first-up.

Her first major aim this time in will then be next month’s $500,000 Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) running at Caulfield Racecourse on October 11, a race she’s the current $6 favourite through Ladbrokes.com.au to win.

After two nice seconds in March last year to begin a top autumn campaign at home in Adelaide, Go Indy Go broke her maiden status at Morphettville on April 12 with a smart three and a half length effort in the Group 3 Sires’ Produce Stakes relishing a step up to 1400m.

Then it was onto Sydney and up to the mile with Cox Plate winning jockey Chad Schofield jumping aboard for her one length win over Zululand in the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m).

She swamped them that day and Schofield is now excited to continue his partnership with the three-year-old who he believes could go all the way to the $1 million Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m) at Flemington on November 6 during the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

“My most notable rides this spring are Go Indy Go, Bring Me The Maid, Solicit, Sistine Demon, Green Moon and Divan,” Schofield said to Racing Victoria last week.

“Go Indy Go…will head towards the Thousand Guineas on October 11, and then onto the Oaks.

“If she is going well enough, hopefully the Cox Plate before the Crown Oaks on November 6.”

The $3 million Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) runs at Moonee Valley Racecourse on October 25 and futures betting on the weight-for-age classic are led by Silent Achiever ($11) who resumed with a first-up fourth to Dissident in the Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) on August 30.

Go Indy Go meanwhile is still in the top half of the markets at $21, an equal price with last year’s Caulfield Cup winner Fawkner.

The Danehill Stakes meanwhile is shaping up as a crack showdown on the weekend.

Vain Stakes winner Get The Nod runs second-up looking to retain an undefeated record but will be ridden by Mark Zahra with the gelding’s regular jockey Joe Bowditch out with a broken leg.

Other notable hopes include a trio form Mick Price including Cornrow and Nordic Empire, and the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained Galaxy Pegasus coming off a seven length win on debut at Geelong.

Chris Waller’s Group 1 JJ Atkins runner-up Brazen Beau is also in the mix with Jim Cassidy to ride the colt first-up, while the Godolphin-owned Ghibellines will have Steven Arnold in the saddle as the son of Shamardal races for the first time since an eighth to Mossfun in the Golden Slipper.
