2015 Tattersall’s Tiara Hope Najoom Escapes Injury

After celebrating a big Group 3 win at Doomben on Saturday the Gai Waterhouse-trained Group 1 bound filly Najoom was involved in an injury scare on Sunday ahead of her likely Tattersall’s Tiara 2015 bid on the Gold Coast next month.

The talented daughter of ill-fated sire Northern Meteor has had seven career starts to date for five wins and two seconds including her Queensland debut last weekend when Tommy Berry rode her to a brilliant three and a quarter-length victory over Miss Cover Girl in the Group 3 Fred Best Classic (1350m) at Doomben Racecourse.

Post-win the up-and-comer was found to be suffering from a minor leg injury that Waterhouse advised Racing Queensland (RQ) Stewards over on Sunday morning.

Najoom underwent a vet inspection yesterday after sustaining a slight injury to her near fore leg, which was discovered once she’d cooled down from her big Doomben 10,000 Day win.

The Fred Best Classic winner is exempt from ballot for Queensland’s richest race, the $2 million Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1350m) run back at Doomben on June 6.

Najoom is not currently nominated for the classic, but after her impressive victory connections could be tempted to pay the late entry fee to get her into the race.

Emirates Park chief government Trevor Lobb however said over the weekend there was no rush in deciding whether to pay up for the Group 1 or run her in the $200,000 Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes (1350m) on the same day instead with an eye on a $500,000 Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) grand final at the Gold Coast on June 20.

“The target was the Tiara once we got here up right here however we will nonetheless take a look at the Stradbroke however there isn’t a hurry,” Lobb told the Gazette Herald.

“She has thrived up right here and the blinkers have made her a unique filly.

“The choice will come right down to if she is seasoned sufficient to tackle these older horses.

“There’s a choice to run within the Dane Ripper on the identical day however these selections will probably be made by Gai.”

Futures Stradbroke Handicap odds are currently co-led at $7 by Lumosty and the not-nominated Najoom through Ladbrokes.com.au.

The Robert Smerdon-trained Fastnet Rock filly Lumosty earned her spot at the top of the markets after an impressive two and three-quarter length victory in the Listed The Straight Six (1200m) at Flemington over the weekend.
