Badawiya Still Thousand Guineas 2015 Bound

A non-black type race at Pakenham is the ‘Plan B’ for Mick Price’s 2015 Thousand Guineas hope Badawiya after a bad gate ruled her out of a run at Caulfield last weekend.

The promising daughter of Al Maher was scratched from a run in the feature race in Melbourne last Saturday after drawing poorly for the Group 3 Naturalism Stakes (1400m) subsequently won by Caulfield Cup-bound lightweight Magnapal.

Price isn’t giving up the Group 1 dream with his filly however and still has the $500,000 Group 1 Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield on October 10 on the agenda for Badawiya.

A winner of one of her four starts to date including an impressive seven length victory at Murtoa last month, she was last seen running a mid-field seventh behind current Thousand Guineas favourite Stay With Me in the Listed Atlantic Jewel Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on September 5.

The David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained Street Cry filly Stay With Me pays $4.80 in the latest Thousand Guineas odds, the all-in markets set for an update following the second declarations taken at midday today.

Stay With Me along with the $5 second favourite, Peter Moody’s Group 1 Champagne Classic winner Pasadena Girl, head into the Group 1 via the traditional lead-up in the $200,000 Group 2 Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m) on Underwood Stakes Day this Saturday.

Price will avoid a clash with those top fillies however and instead runs Badawiya in the midweek Victorian meet accepting her for the $40,000 Australian Seed & Turf 3YO BM64 Handicap (1400m).

She is one of 10 in the line-up and is again drawn wide with the outside alley and apprentice Michael Dee using his claim to bring down her 57.5kg allocated weight in the showdown where Price hopes she can still be competitive despite the alley.

“The Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m) on Saturday will likely be a high-class race and we want to get a metropolitan win with her,” he told Racing Victoria.

“We scratched her from Caulfield last Saturday when she drew the outside barrier as I didn’t think she could have won and I didn’t want her to have a horror experience.

“She’s a lightly-framed filly but she’s come through her last run really well and if she has any luck from the barrier I think she’ll run well.”

After Wednesday Badawiya will next race in the $200,000 Group 2 Edward Manifold Stakes (1600m) over the Flemington mile on Turnbull Stakes Day, Sunday October 4, which has produced four Thousand Guineas winners in the past decade most recently Commanding Jewel (3rd in 2012).
