Lumosty Earns Late 2014 Thousand Guineas Start

Following a spectacular maiden win at Sale Racecourse yesterday, Lumosty will be supplemented to the Group 1 Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600m) Saturday week.

Owner Phil Sly decided to pay the late $27,500 entry fee following Lumosty’s nine length victory over Krysor in the Maiden Oxford Landing Estates (1423m) on Wednesday.

Sly said he had no qualms whatsoever in paying the late fee on the back of Lumosty’s incredible win.

The three-year-old quickly emerged as one of the favourites for the $500,000 Caulfield race following the news, with online bookmaker Ladbrokes.com.au trimming her odds from $9 to $6.50 for the 2014 Thousand Guineas.

She is now co-second favourite along with Afleet Espirt and Bring Me To The Maid, while Go Indy Go hold on to her favouritism at $4.

Lumosty was scratched from last Sunday’s Group 2 Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m) after stewards did not approve her racing in bar plates so trainer Robert Smerdon decided to send her to the “forgiving” Sale surface.

The trainer wanted to ensure the filly had a good gallop if she were to become a true Thousand Guineas prospect, and she delivered.

Jockey Craig Williams managed to angle off the fence before the home turn and within an instant Lumosty had shaken off her rivals and put enough space between them to run home to a nine length victory.

“I was pleased when Craig came out when he did and make sure she went right through the line,” Smerdon told TVN.

“The form around her is strong going into the better fillies races. We had a few issues with her, but she seems to be right now.”
