Sargent Confirms Missile Stakes Return for Kirramosa

Strolling home to win the featured Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m) during the 2013 Spring Racing Carnival, trainer John Sargent has revealed Kirramosa will complete an exhibition gallop between races at Royal Randwick this weekend, ahead of a likely return to competition in the Group 2 Missile Stakes (1200m) on August 9th.

Initially outlining plans for the 2014 Autumn Carnival for the rising four-year-old, Sargent was forced shelf plans after a chipped bone in her fetlock was discovered following her impressive victory in the Crown Oaks.

With a long view towards the 2014 Spring Racing Carnival, Sargent told TVN he has been pleased with Kirramosa’s form since returning to work over winter.

“We could have tried to push her to be right for the Brisbane winter carnival but after having three months off we decided it would be best to take the patient approach and give her every opportunity of being right for the spring,” Sargent said.

“All seems to be going to plan at this point, I’m very pleased.”

Partnered by in-form hoop Tommy Berry in work last week, Sargent said the Missile Stakes should figure as the perfect starting point for the Alamosa filly ahead of what will hopefully be a busy and prosperous campaign.

“It looks a nice race for her to kick off in, she will be quite fresh and should sprint well,” Sargent said.

“Tommy Berry came out and worked her this morning (Tuesday) and was very pleased. Hopefully we can get to Melbourne with her again this spring.”

Securing four wins and one minor place from just eight starts over her short racing career to date, Kirramosa debuted with an impressive win over a talented field that included Puccini and Miss Mossman in the Fire N Ice Refrigeration Maiden (1200m) in New Zealand before finishing fourth in the Group 1 Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) in Awapuni.

Debuting in Australia with an unlucky run for fourth in the Become An ATC Sponsor 3.y.o (1200m) on August 2st, the filly out of Freyja won a minor event over 1200m on September 18th; continuing to build in form and class on her way to back-to-back victories in the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) and Crown Oaks most recently.
