Bow Before 2015 Vamous Stakes for Lady Lakshmi

Cranbourne’s Stephen Theodore is hoping his visiting Victorian-based mare Lady Lakshmi can make an impact in the Apple Isle this Tasmanian Summer Racing Carnival with the Vamous Stakes 2015-bound four-year-old racing in tonight’s Bow Mistress Trophy.

The daughter of Lonhro jumps at single figures through in the $150,000 Group 3 Bow Mistress Trophy (1200m) under the lights at Hobart tonight in her maiden start in Tassie.

She’s drawn ideally in barrier five and faces 13 rivals following the early scratching of Merrick’s Beauty.

Currently the Bow Mistress Trophy odds are led by fellow interstate raider I Love It, the widely-drawn Artie Schiller four-year-old from Caulfield jumping from 11 but paying $5 to post back-to-back wins following a 1200m effort last start at Ballarat in November.

Lady Lakshmi meanwhile is rated a $6.50 chance, firming in from $7, with Daniel Stackhouse replacing Vlad Duric in the saddle.

Stackhouse has ridden the mare for three previous wins.

A winner of five of her 23 starts to date, her two most recent runs saw her finish seventh.

Firstly she was six lengths off Pornichet in the Group 3 Sandown Stakes (1500m) in mid-November before a first-up run when four lengths off Scarlet Billows in a fillies & mares Benchmark 90 over 1200m at Moonee Valley on January 24.

Yet to win over the distance, Lady Lakshmi has won two of her five second-up assignments and should be fitter after her resuming run with Theodore believing she’s set for success after her trip across the Bass Strait.

“We treated her last run as a trial and she carried 59 kilos, so we weren’t too disappointed with her result,” he told Racing Victoria on Thursday.

“It’s good to be getting back to a set weight race with her.

“The aim of the game is to get Black Type race success, and being a Group 3 for just fillies and mares, we decided to make the trip over.

“I couldn’t have presented her any better for tomorrow night, she’s a terrific top-three chance and I’m confident she’ll be up there.

“She headed over by boat yesterday (Wednesday) and arrived about 6.30am this morning (Thursday).

“The travel foreman said she bounced off the truck, ears pricked and looks great, so she’s come off the boat very happy.”

All going well and Theodore plans back her up at Launceston on February 18 in the $100,000 Group 3 Vamos Stakes (1400m).

“Tomorrow will be a great lead in to her grand final, which will be the Vamos Stakes in a couple of weeks,” he confirmed yesterday.

“Tomorrow is over 1200 metres, but the Vamos is a 1400 metre race which is her best distance.

“So the shorter distance will be a great lead-up to her ultimate target in a few weeks.”

The Bow Mistress – Vamos Stakes double was Lady Lynette in 2011.

The following year the same David & Scott Brunton-trained mare ran second in the Bow Mistress first-up before successfully defending her Vamos Stakes title.

The form of Tasmania’s top two fillies and mares races held in 2013 with Rebel Bride winning the Bow Mistress Trophy for Leon Wells before just being nosed out of the Vamos by Beautiful Buns.

Then 12 months ago local Longford-based Isibaeva won the Bow Mistress Trophy and finished third to Rebel Bride who contested her third straight Vamous Stakes for a second win on the back of a Bow Mistress fourth and Thomas Lyons third.

That recent historical form is something Theodore now hopes Lady Lakshmi can follow on with starting tonight.
