Macdonald Bullish of Go Indy Go’s Crown Oaks Chances

The only Group 1 winner confirmed in the final field for this afternoon’s feature race at Flemington, trainer Leon Macdonald is confident the recent form and class displayed by Go Indy Go highlights her chances for success in the Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m), despite having never been trialled at the distance.

Securing a commendable race record of two wins and a further four minor places from her eight competitive appearances at the races, Go Indy Go was disappointing when only managing seventh in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) on October 11th but raised her claims as a serious Crown Oaks contender when hitting the line hard in the Group 2 Moonee Valley Vase (2040m) last time out; an event for which she finished third.

Confident the Bernardini filly will get the trip, Macdonald said he was thrilled with the late turn of foot displayed by the classy three-year-old in the Moonee Valley Vase and is confident she will line up for the Crown Oaks in perfect order.

“That was a cracking trial for the Oaks. She really rattled home and I figured then that she was ripe for the Oaks,” Macdonald told the Herald Sun.

“The distance will be no drama. Her mum (Elegant Eagle) ran a mile-and-a-half and I think she is as stout as any of the runners.

“She is a quality filly. She is as good as she can be and is improving every run.”

Announcing her racing arrival over an impressive debut preparation through autumn, Go Indy Go finished second in the Listed Cinderella Stakes (1050m) and the Group 3 Breeders’ Stakes (1200m) first-up in March before securing back-to-back victories in the Group 3 Sires’ Produce Open (1400m) and Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m).

Failing to beat a single runner home in the Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) first-up before claiming a credible third in the Group 2 Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m) in her only other start prior to the Thousand Guineas, Go Indy Go has been confirmed to be partnered by Champagne Stakes jockey Chad Schofield in the 2014 Crown Oaks and will leave from the ideal barrier 5.

Opening at a quote of $5.50 for success, Go Indy Go has experienced the greatest market share of attention from punters, who have seen the three-year-old cut into a current price of $4.40 to register as outright Crown Oaks favourite and market mover at Ladbrokes.com.au.
