Slightly Sweet 2015 JHB Carr Stakes Result for Coyle

Sydney horseman Jason Coyle pulled off an excellent training effort on All Aged Stakes Day with his progressive filly Slightly Sweet coming back off a Group 1 run over 2000m to win the JHB Carr Stakes 2015 over the 1400m at Randwick.

Last start Coyle’s three-year-old daughter of Charge Forward took on her own kind at Rosehill on March 28 in the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) where she ran a credible seventh beaten just over two and a half lengths by the winner Fenway.

She just wasn’t quite furnished enough at this early stage of her career for the run over the 10 furlongs that day so Coyle decided to drop her right back in both class and distance for a shot at the $150,000 Group 3 Kari J H B Carr Stakes (1400m).

It was a tough ask from the promising filly, winner of the Group 3 Keith Nolan Stakes (1600m) at Kembla Grange two back, who was five runs into her autumn campaign in the Carr Stakes.

A lovely type with a big future, Slightly Sweet didn’t seemed fazed by the test however and got the job done in fantastic fashion to hand jockey Kathy O’Hara her first Group win of the carnival.

“Full credit to Jason,” O’Hara said after the win.

“Being able to freshen this filly up from the 2000m in the Group 1 last start, it’s a massive effort.

“It was a big drop back in grade for her but she was coming back a long way in distance, which is not an easy thing to do fifth run back into their preparation.

“She’s a beautiful filly and she’ll furnish into a lovely mare.”

O’Hara piloted the Carr Stakes winner to perfection today, not rushing the ride and timing her run to perfection.

The field was lead around by the Gai Waterhouse-trained Nayeli who found the front from a wide alley in the set weights plus penalties clash.

She sat ahead of the likes of Matilija who held the fence and Supara out three deep, two other top fancies in betting, while the easing on-course favourite Peeping settled into fourth.

Slightly Sweet meanwhile was tracking third last as they ran down the side.

They came around the bend with a line of five at the 400m, the likes of the Ron Quinton-trained PJ Bell runner-up Peeping and Street Cry filly Pittsburgh Flyer making their moves.

It was the double-figure chance Slightly Sweet ($12) however who quickly rushed to the front drawing away to beat home a fast-finishing outsider Anyaas ($19), the David Vandyke-trained runner-up in her first start since winning over 1250m at Canterbury back in February.

Finishing off the JHB Carr Stakes trifecta in a close third was then the returning Bjorn Baker-trained Sebrina ($19) in her maiden black type assignment, making for some very nice paying exotics in the third.

While Coyle did a magnificent job to freshen-up Slightly Sweet, coming back from a tough 2000m run to the 1400m, he gave full credit to the filly who relished the distance.

“Full credit to the horse,” he said.

“She had a really good turn of foot (today) and went through the gap there.

“She’s come off a tough 10 furlong run. She pulled up well and we did a lot of swimming and easy work to get the sprint back in her legs.”

Slightly Sweet will now go to the paddock to freshen-up ahead of the spring where Coyle said there was no reason not to test her over the 2000m again once she’d matured a bit.

“I just think she wasn’t furnished (for the 2000m) this time,” he said.

“There’s no reason she can’t step up again.

“We’ll take her to the paddock now and come back for the spring.

“She hasn’t put a foot wrong and I’m really proud of her.”
