2014 Gucci Stakes Won by Onemorezeta

Talented filly Onemorezeta has delivered trainer Kris Lees an early victory on 2014 Crown Oaks Day this afternoon; displaying an impressive turn of foot late to take out the Group 3 Gucci Stakes (1100m) at Flemington Racecourse.

Jumping from the gates only fairly, Onemorezeta allowed early leaders Eloping, Tawteen and Chiavari a head start of around five lengths.

Steadily spooling up and working forward, the Onemorenomore filly exploded upon reaching the final 200m on the Flemington straight track; poking clear with 100m to run and finding the line half a length ahead of Eloping; Tawteen boxing on for third.

Champion jockey Damien Oliver delivered a perfectly-timed ride on Onemorezeta for success in the 2014 Gucci Stakes, and was thrilled to deliver old mate and trainer Kris Lees a Stakes win on Crown Oaks Day.

“She’s a brave little filly; that Eloping is very hard to get past but she managed to ware her down,” Oliver said following the race.

“She’s still a little bit wayward, it’s only very early in her career but I think she’s got a bright future.

“Great to ride a winner for Kris Lees, we got back a long way, I’ve know Kris for a long time and he’s having a great run, he’s a great trainer.

“It’s a great day and the weather’s come out so it’s beautifiul.”

Kris Lees was understandably pleased with Onemorezeta’s performance in the 2014 Gucci Stakes, and counted the victory as a great consolation after leading chance Lucia Valentina failed to fire late in Tuesday’ Melbourne Cup.

“She’s come a long way in a short time but just a really improving filly, a lot of upside still in her,” Lees said.

“She was very green at her last win at Warwick Farm and it was always a risk bringing her down the straight, but that’s why you put D Oliver on her I suppose, that certainly helps.

“It’s a great thrill to have a winner on Oaks Day. I’m blessed to have such great owners in Australian Bloodstock on my side and hopefully I can do them proud.”
