Spring Stakes Target for First-Up Winner Peeping

Randwick-based horseman Ron Quinton has confirmed a stakes assignment second-up this Sydney Spring Racing Carnival for his promising mare Peeping who won her resuming run at Rosehill Gardens on San Domenico Stakes Day.

The four-year-old daughter of Redoute’s Choice raced for the first time since a fifth behind Slightly Sweet in the Group 3 James Carr Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on April 18, kicking off a light spring campaign in the $85,000 Fairfield RSL Club Handicap (1200m).

Drawn the rails with Sam Clipperton booked for the ride, Peeping jumped the odds-on favourite in betting on the BenchMark 90 race that also saw the return of John Sargent’s 2013 Crown Oaks winner Kirramosa.

Peeping was ridden quietly by Clipperton who was very patient aboard the mare, runner-up behind Miss Cover Girl in the Group 3 PJ Bell Stakes (1200m) on the back of a Listed Rosehill win in March, and took his time getting the short-priced favourite to the line.

She gave the gutsy leader Howmuchdoyouloveme a big start, and the Con Karakatsanis-trained Written Tycoon seven-year-old was hard to run down giving a good kick on the straight to really stretch the well-supported mare.

Peeping jumped away very quickly from her inside alley and Clipperton settled her into third behind Howmuchdoyouloveme and Decision Time who sat one-two throughout.

Peeping got a lovely run with Woodbine tracking on her outside while Kirramosa ran fourth throughout, well back in the field but tracking nicely in her returning run.

Market mover Howmuchdoyouloveme ($12) and his hoop Samantha Clenton held the clear-cut lead round the bend into the run for home while Peeping ($1.85) started to close in 150m out from the line.

She lunged and got there in the final stride to beat the front runner narrowly while the consistent Chris Waller-trained Encosta De Lago mare Kristy Lee ($7.50) came from last to cross third in a brave run – her fifth time running second or third from as many starts this campaign.

Peeping took a while to pick up after traveling well throughout, and she had to work hard for the win after Howmuchdoyouloveme kicked along and pulled away in the closing stages.

Looking in trouble 100m from the line, the progressive mare knuckled down and against some determined types still won convincingly despite the narrow margin impressing Quinton.

“I thought it was a very, very good performance,” Quinton told the media post-win.

“The old horse Howmuchdoyouloveme put in a huge performance, one of his best runs in a long time, and for her to gun him down after giving him a good start, the win had a lot of merit.

“She’s got improvement left in her.”

Peeping has now won four of her eight career starts and will be stepped back up into stakes company next start with Quinton and connections planning a light spring with her major aim being a bigger campaign in the 2016 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival next year.

“We’ve already discussed only giving her a light spring looking to next autumn,” Quinton confirmed.

“We’ll take it one step at a time….there are no firm plans at the moment.

“It was lovely for her to come back and no question (it will be a stakes race next) – a fillies and mares something.

“I’m very proud of her and I thought Sam (Clipperton) rode her perfectly.”

A nice next-up target for Peeping could be a return to Rosehill on Golden Rose Day, September 12, for the $125,000 Group 3 Sheraco Stakes (1200m) against a field of fellow fillies and mares.
