Dear Demi Set for Dominant Return in 2015 Wiggle Stakes

Five-year-old mare Dear Demi finished runner-up in the Group 2 Let’s Elope Stakes (1400m) and won the Group 2 Stocks Stakes (1600m) during the spring but her campaign was cut short in late October after an elevated temperature sent the mare to the paddock.

Dear Demi was set to contest top races including the Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) and Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) but plans changed after she became sick and trainer Clarry Conners was forced to pull the plug on the remainder of the spring.

After four months in the spelling paddock, the iron mare is ready to return to racing. She enjoyed an exhibition gallop at Royal Randwick Racecourse on Wednesday with jockey Jim Cassidy, who believes Dear Demi is back to full fitness and is racing just as good as ever.

“She’s flying, not just in the gallop but in herself, she’s going terrific,” Cassidy told Racenet.

“She’s a marvel, just keeps turning up every preparation.

“Whatever she runs in she’s going to be competitive.”

Dear Demi ran the 1000-metre trial in 61.73 seconds, particularly impressing in the final 600 metres, coming home in 35.3 seconds.

The five-year-old mare has brought home more than $2 million in total prize money and enjoyed success in races such as the Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m), Group 2 Furious Stakes (1400m), and Group 2 Surround Stakes (1400m).

Dear Demi has proven a successful runner over a range of distances from 1400m – 2500m. She is set to resume in the Group 3 Wiggle Stakes (1400m) at Warwick Farm on February 28, running in support of the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m).

The mare is also nominated for the $1 million Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on April 11, the second day of The Championships series.
