2016 Let’s Elope Stakes Considered for Jessy Belle

Caulfield’s Luke Oliver is hoping to press on with another campaign for his smart mare Jessy Belle who could resume in September’s Let’s Elope Stakes 2016.

While retirement to the breeding barn is on the cards for the rising six-year-old daughter of Rock Of Gibraltar, her trainer Oliver will press connections to give her another preparation in the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival this year.

“We’re going to discuss in the next two weeks whether she kicks on or whether she gets retired,” Oliver told AAP this week.

“I’d love to give her another spring, so hopefully she kicks on.”

A winner of seven of her 36 career starts to date, Jessy Belle was last seen running a credible fifth as a $20 shot in the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) behind Miss Cover Girl at Eagle Farm.

That followed on from a solid third, also in Brisbane, behind Cradle Me in the Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes (1400m) and she is now enjoying a spell in Queensland.

It has been over a year since her last win when scoring back-to-back Flemington victories over 1400m last winter, the same track and distance Oliver is eyeing for her first-up return this coming season should she race on.

He has tentatively scheduled in the $200,000 Group 2 Let’s Elope Stakes (1400m) on Makybe Diva Stakes Day, September 10, as a possible lead-up to the $500,000 Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) back at the track on Victoria Derby Day.

“At this stage she’s having a two-week spell and then getting ready to come back for potentially the Let’s Elope Stakes, but we’re just going to have a discussion while she’s spelling,” Oliver said.

Last spring Jessy Belle raced when for thirds in the How Now Stakes, Blazer Stakes and Tristarc Stakes before crossing only 2.6 lengths back for seventh behind Politeness in the Myer Classic.

The 2016 Myer Classic is also the long-term spring option for Tattersall’s Tiara winner Miss Cover Girl as confirmed by her Queensland-based trainer Kelly Schweida this week.
