2015 Crown Oaks Grand Final for Sagaronne

Rising three-year-old filly Sagaronne is on track for a Crown Oaks 2015 bid this spring and will race exclusively in Melbourne without a run at home in Queensland.

Trained on the Gold Coast by Toby Edmonds, the smart daughter of Real Saga boasts a consistent record of two wins and a second from four runs so far and is also Group 1 performed.

Improving on her seventh on debut back in January, Sagaronne quickly rose through the ranks winning a maiden over 1200m at her home track and then the Listed The Phoenix (1350m) at Doomben in May.

From there Edmonds stepped her up to elite level company for her final run of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival and she didn’t disappoint when finishing under a length away second to Press Statement in the Group 1 J.J. Atkins (1600m) as a 12/1 chance at Doomben on June 6.

Sent for a spell after the Group 1 second, all reports from her trainer who spoke to Sky Racing HQ on Wednesday morning are that the filly has come through her break well and will be given another shot at a top level win against her own age this campaign.

“She had a month out and spelled terrifically,” Edmonds said.

“She seems to have grown, filled out and matured.

“She didn’t have a heavy campaign, she only had the three starts during the winter and we were always looking towards the spring.

“She is on the right track, she is a big gross filly that has a stature that is above her age.

“While these other ones are all catching up, she is there already and we are looking forward to it.”

Edmonds plans to run Sagaronne through the traditional lead-up races heading into the $1 million Group 1 VRC Crown Oaks (2500m) run at Victoria’s famous Flemington Racecourse on Thursday November 5 during the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

Her preparatory runs into the Oaks will include the Group 2 Edward Manifold Stakes (1600m) at Flemington on October 4, the Listed Ethereal Stakes (2000m) at Caulfield on October 17 and the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) the Saturday before on Victoria Derby Day.

“We have earmarked the Grand Final as the VRC Oaks and she will probably head straight to Melbourne after she trials at the Gold Coast,” Edmonds confirmed.

“She will go through the traditional lead-ups to the Oaks and hopefully we can have her ready for that day.

“She will trial in about three weeks’ time and they do carry a fair bit of residual fitness from that preparation out to a mile.

“She is very clean-winded and I am quite happy with where she is at, at the moment.”

The Wakeful Stakes has produced four of the past six Crown Oaks winners, most recently in 2013 when the John Sargent-trained Kirramosa completed the double.

The other Wakeful Stakes – Crown Oaks double winners in that time were Brazilian Pulse (2010) and Faint Perfume (2009).

Edmonds meanwhile is yet to prepare a Crown Oaks starter so has high hopes for Sagaronne to make the field and represent the stable in the three-year-old fillies’ classic.
