Nominations for the Group 3 Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes (1200m) closed on Monday morning, with 16 two-year-old fillies setting themselves up to the challenge, a few of which are dually nominated for the Group 2 Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m).
Peter Moody, along with training duo David Hayes & Tom Dabernig, has nominated two of his stable’s fillies for the race, which means he could dominate the field and deliver a dual-pronged attack.
Moody will potentially saddle Pasadena Girl and Peritus. Two-year-old filly Pasadena Girl made her debut in the Listed Talindert Stakes (1100m) on February 21, winning her maiden race by one length. Peritus has yet to make her debut but did enjoy a solid jumpout at Canterbury on February 23 with Luke Nolen.
Hayes & Dabernig have nominated both Air Apparent and Hell Or Highwater. Air Apparent has yet to win her maiden despite four attempts, running second in her first two starts before failing to place in both the Group 2 Blue Diamond Fillies Prelude (1100m) and Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m).
Hell Or Highwater has also failed to win her maiden yet. The filly debuted with a fourth placing in the Listed Merson Cooper (1000m) in November before finishing midfield on resuming in the Blue Diamond Fillies Prelude on February 14.
The racing giant Godolphin is represented by Pursuits in the 2015 Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes nominations. The filly failed to make the Blue Diamond Stakes field on February 28 after finishing 10th (of 14) in the Prelude.
Mick Price has nominated last-start winner Eclat, who won her maiden on debut on February 26 by a short half-head.
Other fillies nominated for the Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes include Ciaron Maher’s Jameka, who was third in the Inglis Banner (1000m) and fourth in the Talindert Stakes her past two times out, Gary Portelli’s Racy, who finished outside the placings in the $2 million Magic Millions Classic (1200m) on January 10, and Inglis Classic (1200m) third Serenade.
