Let’s Make Adeal’s win in the Group 3 Bart Cummings was a special victory for so many reasons.
On the 9th of May this year, Amarela kicked off her current campaign. Today at Caulfield, at her eighth race this campaign, she saluted with a commanding victory over 1600m.
Nigel has held Exclusive Lass in very high regard since the early days in her career. She proved she is better than benchmark 70 grade with a commanding three length victory at Moonee Valley on Friday night.
The well-named Amarela is pleasing her connections and us at the stable this campaign. Following her second victory at Pakenham, she steps up to meet the high class of the Group 2 Let’s Elope Stakes today at Flemington.
This time each year is always a fun time for trainers, owners and staff. We start to see more of our young new-season two-year-olds as they progress through their stable orientation programs. Our new-season three-year-olds are preparing for their upcoming races, many for the first time. And our proven older gallopers are getting fit and ready to put their stake in for Spring riches.
Sometimes races do not go to plan, yet the result is still favourable. That was certainly the case last Thursday at Sale, when Mossara Lad found himself in the lead and over-racing during the middles stages but was too strong at the end of the 1411m Benchmark 64 event.
