237 Fillies Included in 2017 Thousand Guineas Nominations

An outstanding field is set to step out in this year’s Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield Racecourse following this afternoon’s release of an impressive list of 237 nominated fillies.

Catchy and Tulip were standouts for the Lindsay Park operation in autumn and headline a strong list for Hayes, Hayes and Dabernig in 2017 Thousand Guineas nominations.

Catchy was a smart winner of two Victorian sprints upon debuting in December, before making a successful transition to black type company with an impressive win in the Group 2 Blue Diamond Prelude F (1100m) on February 11th.

Sent of a live chance in the Group 1 Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) on February 25th, the daughter of Fastnet Rock was too good for her rivals and claimed a smart half-length win over Pariah.

Catchy simply failed to handle the heavy going when she finished at the tail of the field in the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) and has reportedly taken plenty of benefit from her time in the paddock.

Tulip was one of the most consistent two-year-olds through the Autumn Carnival and would not look out of place in the Thousand Guineas winner’s circle.

Winner of the 1Print Plate (1000m) on debut in December, Tulip ran second in the Group 3 Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Preview (1000m) on Australia Day before finishing fourth in the Blue Diamond Stakes.

Returning to winning form in the Group 3 Magic Night Stakes (1200m) on March 11th, the Pierro filly ran an impressive third in the Golden Slipper and was sent to the paddock after she worked home reasonably for fifth in the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m).

Limestone, Whispered Secret and One More Honey all stamped themselves as fillies to watch as two-year-olds and have been included in 2017 Thousand Guineas nominations.

Limestone finished third behind Catchy in a minor sprint over 1000m at The Valley on debut, but undoubtedly impressed the most when she flew home to beat Black Caviar’s first progeny Oscietra in the New Year Plate (1000m).

Making a smart transition to black type company when a winner of the Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Preview, Limestone was last seen finishing second in the Blue Diamond Prelude on February 11th.

Whispered Secret quickly built to the task as a two-year-old and was a strong and consistent performer amongst strong company by the time she was sent for a spell.

Fourth in a Newcastle maiden race over 1150m first-up on March 11th, the High Chaparral filly broke through for her first race win in the Joshua Caruso Foundation Maiden (1350m) before storming home to win the Listed Fernhill Handicap (1600m) on Day 2 of The Championships.

An impressive third in the Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) at her most recent appearance, the 2017 Thousand Guineas is the ideal campaign target for Whispered Secret this time.

One More Honey is an exciting prospect for Randwick trainer John Thompson and has trialled well in the lead-up to a likely Thousand Guineas campaign.

The Onemorenomore filly won the Group 2 Sweet Embrace Stakes (1200m) at only her third career start in autumn, but failed to produce much when ninth in the ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes.

Last seen running a credible fifth in the Champagne Stakes, One More Honey has furnished into a bigger horse ahead of her spring campaign.
