Sold For Song to Bypass Tattersall’s Tiara 2016

Toowoomba trainer Kevin Kemp has ruled out a run against the older mares for his brave filly Sold For Song in the 2016 Tattersall’s Tiara despite her eye-catching Queensland Guineas third over the weekend.

The three-year-old daughter of Collate improved notably on her 12th to Counterattack in the Group 3 Fred Best Classic (1350m) from May 21 to come from behind and cross only 1.6 lengths away third behind saluting favourite Tsaritsa in an all-fillies trifecta on Stradbroke Day in the Group 2 Queensland Guineas (1600m).

While the temptation is there to test Sold For Song in the $500,000 Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) back at Eagle Farm Racecourse on June 25, Kemp said he will instead drop her back in class next-up.

Sold For Song will bypass the Group 1 feature for fillies and mares and instead cap off her Queensland Winter Racing Carnival campaign with a run on Tatt’s Tiara Day in the $125,000 Listed Daybreak Lover Stakes (1400m) for three-year-olds.

Kemp always had the Daybreak Lover Stakes on the agenda for his stakes winning filly, the race rescheduled from the Queensland Oaks Day wash-out on June 4 to the end-of-month meeting.

“It was ironic that we drew barrier one for the washed out race and then the outside for the Guineas,” Kemp said.

“The wash-out really cost us because we were planning to see how she would go when ridden closer to the pace.

“I thought about the Tiara but she is only a three-year-old and there will be some very experienced mares in the field.”

After winning the Listed Gold Edition Plate (1200m) at Doomben in December last year, Sold For Song was runner-up first-up at the Sunshine Coast on April 23 behind Divine Centuri in the Listed Mick Dittman (1000m).

She then ran a nice second again this time beaten only a quarter-length by Takedown from barrier 15 of 16 in the Group 3 Gold Coast Guineas (1200m) before her Fred Best failure.

After the Daybreak Lover Stakes, Sold For Song will be sent for a well-earned spell before coming back in the spring where her proven ability at a mile has now opened up options in both Sydney and Melbourne.

“A few people have said to me they would love to see her down the straight six (1200m) at Flemington, but we have a few other options now we know she can run a strong 1600 metres.” Kemp said.
