Ryan Duo Tackle 2015 Reisling Stakes

The Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m), which is running at Randwick this Saturday, will be the make or break test for many juveniles hopes of running in the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) on March 21.

10 two-year-old fillies were nominated for the Reisling Stakes on Monday morning, including three of Godolphin’s top juveniles. While all eyes will be on Fireworks, Calaverite, and Ottoman to see where they end up on the Godolphin pecking order, Gerald Ryan will be testing the skills of two of his own fillies.

Perignon and Fireworks will both run in the 2015 Reisling Stakes to see if they are genuine contenders for the $3.5 million Golden Slipper in two weeks.

Not seen since she ran an unlucky fifth in the Magic Millions Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast on January 10, Perignon is dually nominated for the Reisling Stakes and the Group 3 Black Opal Stakes (1200m), which is running in Canberra on Saturday.

Ryan will make a decision on which race the filly starts in once the fields are released on Wednesday morning.

“Perignon had a few days in the paddock after the Magic Millions but was kept ticking over with work on the water walker,” Ryan told Sky Racing.

“I’ll look at the fields for both the Reisling and the Black Opal before deciding which race she runs in.”

Perignon won her maiden second-up in the Tab Rewards Plate (1200m) at Canterbury on December 27 which helped her make the field for the $2 million Magic Millions Classic. The filly settled back in the field from barrier ten and was 14th at the 600m mark before improving between horses at 300m. She made good ground but was still two lengths off winner Le Chef.

Fireworks is not actually nominated for the 2015 Golden Slipper but was aimed towards the world’s richest juvenile race after winning the Group 3 Widden Stakes (1100m) on January 31. The filly will need to impress in the 2015 Reisling Stakes for her owner John Camilleri to fork out the $150,000 late entry fee.

“Fireworks has done well since the Widden. She is not a big filly but she maintains her weight,” Ryan said.
