Go Indy Go To Improve in Penny Edition Stakes

Despite being unable to match the late pace when eighth in the Group 3 Spring Stakes (1200m) first-up a fortnight ago, trainer Leon Macdonald is pleased with the condition of talented mare Go Indy Go and is confident she is capable of success in Saturday’s Listed Penny Edition Stakes (1400m) at Morphettville.

Go Indy Go more than stamped her claims as one to watch through a standout debut campaign capped by success in the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) through the 2014 Autumn Carnival, but was unable to reach the same impressive heights through the following spring and returned to the paddock after finishing seventh in the Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m) at Flemington on November 6th.

Electing to keep the classy daughter of Bernardini away from competitive through the recent Autumn Carnival, Macdonald told Racing Ahead she has taken great benefit from her first-up run this time and he is expecting a far-more polished performance in the 2015 Penny Edition Stakes.

“I didn’t think that it was too bad,” Macdonald said.

“She probably raced upside down a little, she raced very close to the pace and just knocked up in the last 200 metres.

“I thought the run was fair without getting carried away with it and she would probably derive great benefit from that because it was her first run for about ten months.

“The pleasing part was that she did want to begin and be close, while the previous preparation in the spring in Melbourne she just didn’t want to begin and be there.

“Maybe she is feeling a lot better than she was.

“She has come through it well and her work yesterday morning was really good.

“I am happy with the way that she has gone, but she still has to prove that she is back and do it on the track.”

Yet to set a specific target for the mare this time despite her being included in nominations for both the Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) and Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m), Macdonald revealed results of Saturday’s Penny Edition Stakes could very well determine the course of action taken by the four-year-old.

“If we are really looking at the sky it will probably be the Dato’ Tan Chin Nam, but if she didn’t perform up to scratch on Saturday we are probably looking at mares race,” he added.

Charged with overcoming the outside barrier 9, Go Indy Go will be partnered by Clare Lindop in the Penny Edition Stakes on Saturday.
