2015 Vinery Stud Stakes Perfect Trip for Adrift

The Gai Waterhouse-trained Adrift is one of 14 three-year-old fillies set to run in the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill this Saturday.

The filly shot onto the scene this autumn, winning the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m) on February 14 at odds of $41 before running seventh in the Group 2 Surround Stakes (1400m) two weeks later.

Adrift was last seen running in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) on March 14, in which she battled to the line for an honest ninth placing.

Waterhouse is confident the filly can return to the winner’s circle in the 2015 Vinery Stud Stakes as she steps up to 2000 metres for the first time, a distance the trainer believes the filly has been wanting.

Increasing her chances at winning the $400,000 feature race, Adrift will also wear blinkers for the first time.

“The 2000 metres is exactly what she’s looking for and has been for a little while now,” Waterhouse said via Racenet.

“She was purchased to be an Oaks filly and from the first moment I laid eyes on her I thought they were on the money.

“We’re also putting the blinkers on her this Saturday. I think they will also make a huge difference.

“Zabeels and blinkers are a winning formula. When you add to that the extra distance, I think you’ll really see what she’s capable of on Saturday.”

Adrift has won three of her six career starts, running unplaced in the other three. The filly opened the Light Fingers Stakes betting as the $101 roughie before being backed into $41. She coursed three wide but only just off the speed before getting up to the one by one by 500m. She was out four wide up the rise and kept on coming on the line, staying on so strongly to win by three-quarters of a length.

The filly enjoyed a gallop over 1400 metres at the Randwick Kensington track on Tuesday morning, running her last 600 metres in 39.9 seconds.
