Stakes Level Test for Bayoonah in 2015 Seascay Handicap

Promising three-year-old filly Bayoonah will have the chance to earn her shot at Stakes level of racing on Saturday in the $80,000 Seascay Handicap (1400m) at Flemington Racecourse.

The filly’s trainer Mick Price told Racing Victoria on Thursday morning that a win in the 2015 Seascay Handicap would have him searching for an appropriate black-type race during the autumn.

Bayoonah is one of 11 three-year-olds set to tackle the sprint-mile race on Saturday, jumping from barrier seven with Nicholas Hall in the saddle for the second consecutive time.

One of only four last start winners in the field, Bayoonah is the $3.70 favourite in the Seascay Handicap betting market at following an impressive one and a half length maiden victory over 1100 metres at Geelong on January 4.

“She was able to win over 1100m because of a good Nick Hall ride and the spacious Geelong track,” Price said.

“I think both the second and third horses out of that race have good ability.

“She’s wants the 1400 metres now and as she progresses she might even end up a 2000m filly.”

Price acknowledges however that the race won’t be a walk in the park for Bayoonah, who faces tough competition from the likes of Profit Share ($3.80), Pure Addiction ($6.50), Tashbeeh and Herstory ($7).

“This race is certainly going to be a lot trickier for her, especially going from 1100 to 1400m second up in a short time but it’s the right option for her and a I think she can run top three,” he said.

“She only has to run in the first three to satisfy expectations but to think she can go from a maiden to this race and win is a massive ask.

“If she won I’d try and find some Black-type for her over the autumn.”

Darren Weir’s Profit Share has a track and distance record of two second placings from two starts while both Tashbeeh and Herstory won benchmark 70 races over the mile or less their last times out.
