Solicit Claims Commanding Summoned Stakes Win

Popular mare Solicit has delivered a talented field defeat in the final race at Sandown this afternoon; kicking clear with complete ease to take out the Group 3 Summoned Stakes (1500m).

Solicit was transferred to the care of Gerald Ryan in search of a maiden Group 1 victory this time, and while unable to complete that feat, entered the 2015 Summoned Stakes in red-hot form.

Jumping well, jockey Kerrin McEvoy allowed the mare to stride forward and take a position on the heels of early leader Andrassy who flew the barriers and ensured plenty of tempo would be injected into the Summoned Stakes from the outset.

Rounding onto the final straight in prime position, the Street Cry mare immediately responded when asked for an extra effort by McEvoy; pulling clear to hit the line four lengths in the clear of closest rival She’s Clean.

McEvoy rode his third winner for the day in partnering Solicit to success in the Summoned Stakes and was thrilled to deliver trainer Gerald Ryan a black type win on Zipping Classic Day.

“I said to Gerry before I usually ride a treble on this day and I don’t like to big note but I’ve only ridden two today!” McEvoy said.

“She’s been running well in good graded races and today she was able to get into a great rhythm and was too strong.

“She’s a big, strong girl. It’s a little bit of black type for her and it’s a job well done.”

Ryan was pleased with Solicit’s final 2015 Spring Carnival race this afternoon, and revealed she will return in autumn with sights set on the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) at Rosehill in March.

“She just had to run up to her run at Caulfield a few weeks ago,” Ryan said.

“Coming into this third-up she looked the fittest.

“She came here and worked really well on Wednesday and she’d never been here before amazingly, so it was good.

“This is the first time she’s won further than 1400m even though she’s been placed in an Oaks at 2000m.

“She’s just been going really well.

“She’ll probably have three weeks off and then we’ll aim her at the Coolmore because it’s run at Rosehill on her home track and is 1500m.”

Solicit will retire into a career as a broodmare following the 2016 Autumn Carnival, and has amassed an impressive six wins and eight minors through 26 career starts.
