Danny Bougoure’s Snitzel filly Flamenco Girl has opened narrow favourite to win the Calaway Gal Stakes 2014 at Doomben Racecourse in Brisbane on Saturday.
The local youngster debuted at the Sunshine Coast on November 2 and celebrated an early win with a half-length effort over Lady Sniper in a QTIS 2YO Maiden Plate (1000m).
On Saturday she’s up in class for her big city debut running as one of 12 two-year-old fillies in this year’s $100,000 Listed Yatala Pies Calaway Gal Stakes (1050m).
Drawn ideally in barrier two with Michael Cahill retraining the ride, Flamenco Girl pays $4.60 through Ladbrokes.com.au to remain undefeated with a black-type victory on Brisbane Handicap Day.
Following closely in the Calaway Gal Stakes odds at $5 is then Kelso Wood’s debutant Attrente in gate nine for champion jockey Jim Byrne.
She may be wide and without an official trial leading up to this first run, but the hype is still there for Wood’s daughter of Jet Spur.
In an open market there are then four other single figure hopes including last start winners Sweet Repeat and Supersay at $7.
Ross Coveney’s Teranaba filly Sweet Repeat is in from Toowoomba after her third on the trot.
She broke her maiden status three runs into her career at home on October 11 over 870m and comes off a Sunshine Coast victory over 1000m from November 30 where she put an easy two and a quarter lengths over her closest rival with apprentice Brooke Stower, replaced on Saturday by Jason Taylor, aboard both times.
Supersay meanwhile ran fourth to Mishani De Caprio on debut over 1050m at Doomben on November 8 before going over that same distance a fortnight later for a half-length win at Toowoomba leading up to her Brisbane return.
The Rothesay filly from the Group 1 winning stables of Tony Gollan gets Tegan Harrison in the saddle for the first time here and jumps one inside of Attrente in barrier eight.
Rounding out the hopes under $10 in Calaway Gal Stakes betting are then Liam Birchley’s unraced Sequalo filly Flamenco ($8) with Larry Cassidy aboard from a nice gate three draw and Star Of Night ($9) coming off a second behind St Remy over 900m at the Gold Coast two weeks ago.
