Carnival heads to Sandown

While the Flemington Spring Carnival finished on Saturday with the running of the Emirates Stakes meeting, focus now turns to Sandown for their carnival over the coming two weeks.


After securing what has been the best start to a season in the history of Danny O'Brien Racing, the team now looks forward to the challenge ahead to keep the ball rolling until the end of the season. With stakes wins from Douro Valley, Villain, Purrealist, Barbaricus and Juste Momente complimenting the Caulfield Cup win of Master O'Reilly, Danny O'Brien is in career best form.


The line up for Saturday at the Sandown Classic meeting includes the two lightly raced 3yo fillies Pleasantsundaygirl and Bold Moment. Both fillies were last start stakes placegetters in the Great Western and Cadbury Roses respectively and have come along way in their three start careers, both yet to be out of the placings. They both take on the Listed Twilight Glow Stakes on Saturday over 1400m and look ideally suited.


Juste Momente saluted in the Listed Liberty Financial Plate at Flemington on Melbourne Cup Day and she runs on Saturday in the Listed Summoned Stakes over 1500m. She has been ultra consistant this preparation and this looks like a great opportunity to score back to back wins.
