Peace Force Still on Tattersall’s Tiara 2015 Mission

An eye injury may have prevented the Gerald Ryan-trained Peace Force from running in last Saturday’s Dane Ripper Stakes but the mare is still on track for a shot at the 2015 Tattersall’s Tiara in Group 1 company on the Gold Coast on June 20.

Everything is still progressing well for the five-year-old daughter of Bernardini to run in the $500,000 Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) Saturday week, the fillies-and-mares’ only feature running at the Gold Coast with its traditional home at Eagle Farm undergoing renovations.

Historically the best lead-up into the Tattersall’s Tiara is the Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes, with both Red Tracer (2013) and Cosmic Endeavour (2014) completing the double over the past two years.

It’s a double Ryan originally hoped Peace Force to aim for before she was ruled out of the opening leg at Doomben last weekend after hurting her eye, an injury he still isn’t sure how she suffered.

“She must have got a whack in the eye but we don’t know how it happened,” Ryan told AAP.

“We had to treat her which meant she couldn’t run on Saturday.”

Peace Force missed no work however and the final Group 1 of the season still calls, her Sydney-based trainer confident the four weeks between runs won’t hamper her chances.

“She hasn’t missed any work and has won off a month break before, so it’s no concern going into the Tiara a bit fresh,” Ryan said.

Peace Force was last seen winning the Group 3 Glenlogan Park Stakes (1350m) in her Queensland debut on May 23 when she narrowly beat home stablemate Solicit.

Four-year-old Street Cry mare Solicit is also Tattersall’s Tiara bound for Ryan.

Two back she beat home Peace Force when Ryan ran the quinella in the Group 3 The 2015 Darley Crown (1300m) at Rosehill before the duo ran one-two again but in reverse order in the Glenlogan.

While Peace Force’s month between runs wasn’t planned, it was always the intention for the stable to give Solicit the four weeks off and she returned to his Hawkesbury stable this week ready to wind up for the Tiara.

The Tattersall’s Tiara would be an especially sweet prize for Solicit to come away with this Queensland Winter Racing Carnival as the mare is set to retire after the run where she’s out to add to her $789,850 in current career prize money.

Originally prepared in Melbourne by Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra, Solicit’s last venture in Group 1 company was her fourth to Bonaria in the Myer Classic over the Flemington mile last November, Ryan pleased with her progress since transferring to his care.

“I’m very happy with her,” he said.

“She seems to like being at Hawkesbury and has done well since her last start.

“We may ask to gallop her at Rosehill on Saturday just to tune her up.”
