Platelet Targets Adelaide Autumn Carnival Group 1s Again

The Goodwood and the Robert Sangster Stakes are the two 2015 Adelaide Autumn Racing Carnival targets on the agenda for the third straight season for the Darren Weir-trained mare Platelet.

Two years ago the ultra-consistent Strategic mare enjoyed the winning Group 1 sprint double at Morphettville Racecourse in Adelaide.

Last year after a solid 2013 spring campaign, she returned to defend her title in both the $400,000 Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) for fillies and mares as well as the $500,000 Group 1 The Darley Goodwood (1200m) in open company.

She was far from disgraced then finishing runner-up in both, the Gai Waterhouse-trained Driefontein winning the Robert Sangster and upset 40-1 winner Smokin’ Joey in The Goodwood.

Platelet then travelled back to Victoria running a first-up second to Rubick in the Group 2 Schillaci Stakes (1000m) in October before two disappointing Group 1 runs.

She ran 11th to the world’s equal highest rated sprinter Lankan Rupee, who resumes racing in Saturday’s $500,000 Group 1 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes (1000m) down the Flemington straight, in the Maikato Stakes at Moonee Valley and then ninth to Terravista in the Darley Classic in November – form connections are hoping she can improve on this time in.

Weir’s racing manager Jeremy Rogers spoke to Racenet on Wednesday in regards to a 2015 William Reid Stakes return form Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes – Toorak Handicap double winner Trust In A Gust on March 27.

Rogers also confirmed plans for Platelet to run in her third The Goodwood and Robert Sangster Stakes on the trot.

This year’s Robert Sangster Stakes, also known as the Sportingbet Classic, is held first on May 2 followed by The Goodwood on May 16 as the autumn merges with the winter racing features for another season.
