Tony Gollan’s highly rated filly Zelady’s Night Out leads a smart field of fellow two-year-old female gallopers facing off in the Calaway Gal Stakes 2015 at Doomben Racecourse this weekend.
The daughter of Myboycharlie won her debut at the same track in mid-November by a commanding four and a half lengths over 1050m and gets the chance at back-to-back Doomben victories over the distance this weekend in the $100,000 Listed The Groove Train Calaway Gal Stakes (1050m).
A final field of 12 are engaged for Doomben Race 5 at 2:17pm (local) on Saturday with jockey Jim Byrne retaining the ride on Gollan’s up-and-comer Zelday’s Night Out from a gun barrier three draw.
She heads towards a run at the Gold Coast Racecourse on January 9 in the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m), for which pays $8 to win as the equal second favourite in futures betting at Ladbrokes.com.au.
Another win this weekend will see her retain an undefeated status and further stamp her claims for the lucrative restricted summer feature next month.
Also well fancied in the all-in Magic Millions 2YO Classic odds and running in the Calaway Gal Stakes on Saturday on the back of a winning debut is the Steven O’Dea-trained The Last Kiss.
She jumps from gate eight on the weekend with Paul Hammersley in the saddle again after the nicely-bred Sebring grey won over 1100m at the track on November 21 defeating Our Cinderella by a quarter length.
The Last Kiss was odds-on that day and carried 55kg to victory but will have 1.5kg extra on her back under the set weights conditions of the two-years-old clash this weekend second-up.
The other undefeated runner in the mix is John Smerdon’s Sidereus filly Starante who won over 900m at the Gold Coast on November 21.
She had one and three-quarter lengths to spare over Par Oneri, running in the Listed Phelan Ready Stakes (1050m) this Saturday, and is back against her own kind for her Doomben debut on the weekend where Luke Rolls will ride her again this time from barrier six.
Sydney’s Gai Waterhouse makes a raid on the Calaway Gal Stakes this summer bringing to Brisbane her Fastnet Rock filly Serena’s Pride.
Serena’s Pride had her first run on November 25 at Warwick Farm running second to Quick Feet over 1000m and has drawn gate four with Glen Colless booked for the ride.
Also coming off a placing last time out are the rails-drawn Hidden Dragon filly River Racer for Les Ross who finished third to Emtevee Queen at the same track and distance a fortnight ago, Our Cinderella out to turn the tables on The Last Kiss and the Brent Stanley-trained daughter of Not A Single Doubt Balancing Act who was second over 1050m at Doomben just last week.
