Ambitious 2015 Autumn Carnival Plans for Vain Queen

Five-year-old mare Vain Queen is set to have an action-packed autumn carnival following a two-month spell.

The mare’s trainer John Sadler has revealed an ambitious four race campaign – all Group One level – across Melbourne and Adelaide following her first black-type race win at the end of the spring.

Vain Queen found herself luckless in her first three black-type runs, finishing just outside the placings in fourth place in the Listed All Victorian Sprint Final (1200m), Group 3 Theshark.com.au Stakes (1100m), and the Listed Testa Rossa Stakes (1200m).

However she turned it around on November 6, winning the Group 3 GH Mumm Stakes (1100m) by an impressive three and a half lengths. Sadler believes the win has earned the mare her shot at Group One level.

“She’s probably three or four lengths behind the top sprinters but because she’s got that Group 3 under her belt we can probably have a bit of fun with her,” Sadler told Racing Victoria.

“Last preparation was really just all about trying to win a Group race.

“She’s only been back in the stable for a week but she’s had three to four weeks at the pre-trainer’s and has come back really well, she certainly hasn’t gone backwards.”

Vain Queen boasts four wins from five starts down the Flemington straight so it’s no surprise she’s set to kick off the autumn in the Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes (1000m) on February 21. She’ll then likely continue her season with the $1 million Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) on the same track on March 14 before heading to Adelaide for both the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) on April 26 and the Group 1 Goodwood Handicap (1200m) on May 9.

If all things go to plan, Vain Queen will be one to watch in the autumn due to her ambitious preparation.
