Zelady’s Night Out to Race Well in Silver Shadow Stakes 2016

Brisbane horseman Tony Gollan has booked the services of Sydney hoop Tommy Berry to ride his filly Zelady’s Night Out who he expects to “race well” first-up in the 2016 Silver Shadow Stakes on Saturday.

The young daughter of Myboycharlie has her three-year-old debut at Royal Randwick in the $175,000 Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m), the set weights plus penalties sprint attracted 13 nominations on Monday.

A lead-up to the $500,000 Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) back at the track on October 1, the Silver Shadow Stakes will see Zelady’s Night Out race for the first time since her last at the track back in early March.

She ran sixth and was beaten five lengths by French Fern in the Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m) in the autumn on the back of a distant ninth to subsequent Golden Slipper Capitalist in the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast in January.

Prior to that the Eagle Farm-based filly won her opening three career starts including the Listed Calaway Gal Stakes (1050m) at Doomben and the Gold Coast’s Group 3 B.J. McLachlan Stakes (1200m) on Boxing Day in December.

Gollan is currently preparing to open a satellite stable at Rosehill in Sydney and is negotiating with the Australian Turf Club (ATC) to have 20 boxes at the course.

With eventual plans to have 32 Rosehill boxes, he hopes Zelady’s Night Out can become one of his regular Saturday Sydney runners starting with her resuming run in the Silver Shadow on Saturday.

He is expecting an improved run off her late two-year-old form despite the class of her potential rivals on the weekend.

“Things didn’t go right late in her campaign as a two-year-old but she has had a good break and I am expecting her to race well,” he told AAP.

Plenty of talented three-year-old fillies are also entered for the Silver Shadow Stakes this weekend including the Chris Waller-trained Omei Sword.

The nicely-bred daughter of High Chaparral has had three starts for a Rosehill win, second in the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes (1200m) in March and ninth to Yankee Rose in the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) from the autumn.

She is well-fancied to step things up this time in and was given a quiet Rosehill trial on Monday morning when seventh to Prompt Response over 900m.

As expected she was saved from a hard run in the hit-out, but hit the line full of running showing promising form as she prepares to step out to a mile later in the season.

While the Flight Stakes at home on Epsom Handicap Day is a potential spring target in Sydney for Omei Sword, she is also in the mix for the $500,000 Group 1 Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield a week later on October 8.

Already she is high up the futures Thousand Guineas odds at Ladbrokes.com.au occupying the second line of all-in betting at $9 behind David Vandyke’s Group 1 winner Yankee Rose.
