Let’s Make Adeal to Focus on 2015 Spring Carnival

Trainer Nigel Blackiston has revealed that Let’s Make Adeal, granddaughter of the great Let’s Elope, will not contest any of the major races in Melbourne or Sydney during the autumn. The mare will instead be solely focused on next year’s spring carnival in Melbourne.

The five-year-old mare will run a very light campaign in the autumn, missing all the major stayers’ races, in a bid to concentrate solely on the 2015 Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival.

“I’m going to give her a real good spell now. Then she’ll come back, but have just a few runs before she goes out again,” the trainer explained to Racing Network on Monday.

“She won’t run in the stayers races in the autumn because I want to set her up for a big spring and that’s what we’ll concentrate on – the spring next year.”

Let’s Make Adeal is one of Australia’s best staying mares who has improved with each racing preparation given to her by Blackiston. Though she has only recorded two career wins and not since August 2013 in the Guinot International Handicap (1600m), it will be interesting to see how she can improve next year.

The mare has had a busy spring campaign this year with seven starts, all in Melbourne. She featured in the Group 2 Lawrence Stakes (1400m), Listed Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock Stakes (1700m), Group 3 Naturalism Stakes (2000m), and Group 1 Turnbull Stakes (2000m) but she didn’t hit her stride until after this, finishing end of the field in all four of these starts.

She ran in the Group 2 Herbert Power Stakes (2400m) next time out, in which she took away a minor placing. The mare worked hard to be midfield before making her way to the middle of the track and making significant ground for a top run. After that Let’s Make Adeal ran in the Group 3 Lexus Stakes (2500m), finishing just outside the placings. After missing the start by two lengths she stayed back for a long while before getting mobile on the bend.

Her last start was in the Group 3 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2600m) on Saturday during Emirates Stakes Day, in which she finished seventh behind Le Roi. The mare got away slowly and was never a threat on the firm track.

“She missed the start and they went slowly, which gave her no hope on Saturday,” Blackiston said.

“The track was too firm for her on Saturday too so she’ll go straight to the paddock now.”
