2016 Spring Carnival Off for Petits Filous

A Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival campaign in 2016 has been ruled out for Ciaron Maher’s smart filly Petits Fious who recently underwent knee surgery to remove bone chips.

The three-year-old daughter of Street Boss has to date won five of her eight starts, but won’t get a chance to add to that record this year.

Her biggest success so far was a Group 3 Quezette Stakes (1100m) win at Caulfield in mid-August last year.

She has also twice been tested in elite level company.

The first produced a 10th to Buffering in the Group 1 Moir Stakes (1000m) last October at Moonee Valley.

Then her last start saw her finish over five lengths away 13th to Precious Gem at Morphettville in the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) on May 7.

Henry Dwyer’s Robert Sangster Stakes winner Precious Gem went on to run sixth in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) on June 11 and returns to the Eagle Farm track in Brisbane this Saturday for a shot at the $500,000 Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m).

Petits Filous meanwhile had a procedure on her knees post her Adelaide run, which her Caulfield-based trainer Maher confirmed would rule her out of a spring return when speaking to Racing Ahead on Tuesday morning.

“She had some knee surgery after her run in Adelaide and will be out for the spring,” he said.

“She’ll probably make a return about autumn next year.

“She had a couple of knee chips, the surgery went well and she’s back in the paddock.”

Maher knew something was amiss watching his filly during the Robert Sangster Stakes run where she was obviously experiencing discomfort.

“She changed strides a number of times down the home straight – it usually means they’re feeling something,” he said.

“So we got her checked out post-race and there was some there … most likely it happened during the race.”

He is still well represented in the final Group 1 of the Australian racing season on Saturday however set to saddle-up the Tattersall’s Tiara favourite Azkadellia.

Winner of the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) in Sydney during ‘The Championships’, the four-year-old daughter of Shinko King is well-fancied to atone for her Stradbroke Handicap loss as the beaten favourite in Brisbane last time out.

Azkadellia sits top of the pre-field Tattersall’s Tiara odds at Ladbrokes.com.au at a short $2.70 for the win, Maher confirming her acceptance in the capacity 17-starter field after being pleased with her Eagle Farm gallop on Tuesday morning.

Maher also confirmed plans to target the big two Spring Cups with last year’s Crown Oaks winner Jameka this season.
