2018 Tattersall’s Club Tiara winner Prompt Response in line for Everest slot

High quality mare Prompt Response is in the mix for a slot in the 2018 The Everest in the Spring after breaking through with a maiden Group 1 win in the $500,000 Sky Racing Tattersall’s Club Tiara (1350m) at Doomben today.

Co-trainer Adrian Bott, who trains in partnership with Gai Waterhouse, is keen to find an Everest slot holder for Prompt Response and said that they could turn the mare into a short course sprinter with a changed training program.

“She has been a fantastic mare for us and trained a little bit differently she could be a real speed mare for us,” Bott said.

“We really want to give serious consideration to keeping a race like The Everest open for her.”

“We have always trained her to get out in trip because they have been the most suitable races for her against the mares but now that she has been able to get that Group 1 and I would really love to see her mix up her training and trained as a real speed horse and see what we could achieve with her.”

Prompt Response was rewarded for some consistent form over the last twelve months after being runner up to Tycoon Tara in last year’s Tattersall’s Club Tiara and she went into today’s race on the back of a second in the Group 2 $200,000 Bundaberg Rum Dane Ripper Stakes (1350m) at Doomben a fortnight ago.

“She has found it difficult to get that Group 1, but she has been the most consistent mare throughout her career, right from her very first start as a two year old,” Bott said.

“She has been in top class races and now I think she is in career best form.”

“Through the Autumn I think was her best campaign and she has brought that up to Queensland now.”

Winning jockey Blake Shinn had Prompt Response in the firing line from the outset from barrier three is the sixteen horse field and once heads were turned for home, he released the breaks and the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott trained mare raced away to record a well-deserved win.

The Chris Waller trained Shillelagh ($14) is gradually reclaiming her best form and charged home from well back in the field to finish second just ahead of the Victorian mare Super Cash ($10).

Prompt Response was well supported in the ring to start the $4.20 favourite while the second select in the betting Champagne Cuddles ($6) settled just off the pace but faded in the straight to finish behind the placegetters.
