Go Indy Go Confirmed for 2014 Moonee Valley Vase

Go Indy Go will run over 2040 metre distance at Moonee Valley Racecourse this Saturday, just not in the race her trainers had originally envisioned.

The three-year-old filly had a brilliant autumn racing campaign that consisted of two wins and two placings. When she ended the season with a powerful finish to win the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) in April, trainers Leon Macdonald & Andrew Gluyas already had a $3 million Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) start in mind as a lead-up to the Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m).

But what a difference six months can make. The trainers had to change their plans following three misfire spring starts and Go Indy Go will now head to the Group 2 Moonee Valley Vase (2040m) on the same day instead of the weight-for-age feature race.

Go Indy Go gave the worst run of her short, yet successful, career when she returned in spring for the Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) on September 13, finishing dead last.

A full veterinary examination failed to detect any problems so she started the Group 2 Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m) a fortnight later, in which she returned to true form for a third placing.

She couldn’t find the same success in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) after having too much work to do from the back of the field early. She couldn’t make up ground with the leaders dominating, finishing 3.5 lengths behind in seventh.

“The way the Thousand Guineas was run she really didn’t have a chance to catch them,” Macdonald said to Sky Racing.

However the trainer noted he is happy with the filly and believes she can come back strong in the 2014 Moonee Valley Vase.

“I’m happy with her. She is still a little bit lighter than I would like but she is fit and well and came through the Guineas in good order,” he said.

“She goes to the Vase. It will be the test whether she goes on to the Oaks.

“I think the extra distance will suit her. She is a very relaxed filly and has the right temperament to run over longer.”
