Hot Dipped On Track for 2016 Quezette Stakes

Broadmarsh-based Tasmanian trainer Brendan McShane has his promising filly Hot Dipped in the best possible form ahead of a Group 3 Melbourne run in Saturday’s Quezette Stakes 2016 at Caulfield Racecourse.

The daughter of Written Tycoon, the same sire as last season’s Golden Slipper winner Capitalist who resumes at Rosehill in the San Domenico Stakes on Saturday, hasn’t raced since March.

She had her first Victorian run that month at Flemington and was far from disgraced running fifth behind Seaburge in the Group 2 VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m).

That effort followed an unbeaten start to her career with three wins on the trot in Tasmanian at Launceston Racecourse including in the Listed Gold Sovereign Stakes (1200m) in late February, and was enough for McShane to bring her back to Melbourne this campaign.

“It was a fact-finding mission and she was definitely at the end because she’d had three runs in five weeks in Tassie and then lobbed here,” McShane said trackside at Caulfield on Tuesday morning.

“She still had a lot of long hair in her coat and we were hoping and we got an OK run.

“She responded to the trip very well. She did very well on her feed and her coat dropped out and she relaxed well.”

McShane is hoping to get her back to winning form this time in and she showed promise winning a Tassie trial on June 14 over 1800m.

Over the past month she has had two good Caulfield jump-outs, where she also completed a strong track gallop on Tuesday morning on the course proper that pleased McShane.

“She just had a bit of a dash up over the last 400m on the course proper,” he said.

“I was happy with that. She’s wound up for Saturday.”

This weekend she takes on a field of fellow new season three-year-old fillies in the $150,000 Group 3 Quezette Stakes (1100m), a nice early lead-up for 2016 Thousand Guineas types.

The set weights plus penalties sprint on P.B. Lawrence Stakes Day drew 22 nominations, with Hot Dipped rated a $15 chance in pre-field Quezette Stakes betting at

“She’s settled in really well. She’s eating everything and is really relaxed in her work but she’s just got a little bit fired up since here last jumpout,” McShane said.

“She’s going as well as she can.”

Six of the early Quezette Stakes entries are under double-figures for the win, including the $5.50 favourite I Am A Star who won a Group 3 in Adelaide last time out.

Dwayne Dunn is booked to ride Hot Dipped in the race, while McShane also has her nominated for the $500,000 Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) back at the track on October 8.

Hot Dipped pays $67 in ante-post Thousand Guineas odds, while the shorter-priced of her possible Quezette Stakes rivals for the Group 1 include Modern Wonder ($15) and Athena Lass ($21).
