2015 Memsie Stakes First-Up Target for Suavito

After a first-up win in the Futurity Stakes over the 1400m at Caulfield in Group 1 company this autumn gone, trainer Nigel Blackiston will return his classy mare Suavito to the same track and distance when she resumes again this spring in the Memsie Stakes 2015.

Kicking off elite level racing for another spring season, the $400,000 Group 1 Memsie Stakes (1400m) is run under weight-for-age conditions at Caulfield Racecourse on August 29.

Back in late February this year, Blackiston’s Thorn Park four-year-old Suavito won the Group 1 Futurity Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield before winning Flemington’s Group 2 Blamey Stakes (1600m) next start and then crossing seventh last time out behind Kermadec in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) in Sydney.

Hoping to return her to winning form, the Flemington-based Blackiston has penciled in the Memsie first-up this Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival for the mare who is on the verge of hitting $1 million in prize money with her current earnings sitting at $952,550.

Mares have a good recent record in the Memsie Stakes with King’s Rose (2011) and Atlantic Jewel (2013) both beating home the boys, Blackiston hoping Suavito can become the next.

She certainly has the ability to do so at her peak having beaten Group 1 winner Smokin’ Joey (2nd) and Dissident (3rd) home in the Futurity Stakes to break through at the highest level of racing.

From there her spring options are wide open, Blackiston confirming she would be nominated for both the $3 million Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) on October 17 and the $3 million Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) at Moonee Valley a week later.

“She’ll be given every opportunity to try and get to one of those races but if we don’t think she’ll measure up we’ll come back to mares’ grade and maybe look at the Myer Stakes,” Blackiston told AAP.

“She’s put on some nice condition since the Doncaster and has come back into the stable in good order.”

The $500,000 Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) for fillies and mares is one of the four Group 1 races on the Victoria Derby Day line-up at Flemington on October 31 this spring.

In the early Cox Plate betting odds at Ladbrokes.com.au Suavito pays $34 to score an upset in Australasia’s weight-for-age championship, futures markets led at $7 by Hong Kong’s Able Friend.
