2015 Quezette Stakes Target for Jalan Jalan

An early win at Flemington over the weekend has the Colin Little-trained filly Jalan Jalan on track for a Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival bid in better class including the Quezette Stakes 2015 next month.

The Caulfield-based daughter of Foreplay is a rising three-year-old and is likely to target the $150,000 Group 3 Quezette Stakes (1100m) against a field of her own kind at her home track in PB Lawrence Stakes Day, August 15, after winning on Saturday.

Taking out the first on the Flemington card, the progressive youngster enjoyed her second victory at start number three in the $80,000 The Flemington Family Handicap (1200m) after putting aside her at-home fiery side to show off her calm race day ability with an off-the-speed run.

She jumped as a $4.40 hope in the handicap clash for juveniles, ace hoop Damien Oliver guiding her to a tidy three length victory over the Peter Moody-trained Gold Symphony ($10) with outside hope Portman ($18) a further three-quarters of a length back for third, the winner displaying a scintillating turn of foot.

“It’s just a different horse,” Little told the media post-win speaking of the seemingly split personalities of Jalan Jalan.

“She was obviously off the bit a couple furlongs out and he had to be giving her a nudge but that’s the way we want to see her racing.

“She quickened and put them away.

“She’s (normally) very hot, but walking around before the race here she was as cool as a cucumber.

“It’s not what we see at home – I had to check the brands at one stage.”

The run before Jalan Jalan finished third to Green Card over 1100m at Caulfield and she appreciated the extra distance at Flemington in her first run over the 1200m and at Victoria’s premier racetrack.

Next month’s Quezette Stakes will make a nice Spring starting point for Little’s filly who could then target tougher assignments against similar rivals as she progresses through her preparation.

“I think we have to keep her going, I’m not big on taking horses all through winter and then I don’t expect them to go on in the spring,” Little said.

“She might have a week in the paddock, freshen up and then take her back to 1100m and hope they go really hard.

“She’s a young filly, pretty tough and we’ll probably think about that race.”

A possible aim is the $500,000 Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) on October 10, Caulfield Guineas Day, a race that last year’s Quezette Stakes winner Sabatini ran third behind Amicus (1st) and Traveston Girl (2nd) in last year.

In between the Quezette Stakes and Thousand Guineas are races including the Group 2 Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m) on September 26 that Little could also set Jalan Jalan for if she progresses well.
