Spring Super Stable 2009 & week 3 of the Spring Racing Season

Typhoon Tracy
Well, I have now selected my initial super stable as below.

BLACK CAVIAR (3YOF)
BLACK PIRANHA
HEART OF DREAMS
MANHATTAN RAIN (3YOC)
METAL BENDER
MIC MAC
TYPHOON TRACY

The above horses represent some very promising performers for early in the season, the bulk of them being four year olds. I was very tempted to substitute El Segundo, who put in a great performance last Saturday, for Black Piranha, and is a bargain at $50,000, but I have doubts about him remaining fit for the whole season. Mic Mac started his season with a sensational win in the Aurie’s Star Handicap and is surely destined for better things.

The meeting next Saturday at Caulfield sees a few of my super stable in with a chance. Typhoon Tracy is to run in the Group 2, JJ Liston Stakes over 1400 metres, thrown in at the deep end with a classy field which includes Heart of Dreams, Whobegotyou, Gallica, Predatory Pricer to name a few.

I’m very much looking forward to seeing Typhoon Tracy race again and it would be great if she won at her first go against the boys. She has drawn well (Barrier 5), likes to lead and with her sizzling sprint, can be counted as one of the main chances. It will be her first start in mixed company, as her previous wins have all been in fillies and mares races. So far she remains unbeaten, but that may change on Saturday, though I hope not. Go Tracy Go!

Besides the Liston Stakes there are several other interesting races. I’m keen to see how Rostova goes in the Listed Quezette Stakes against the likes of Headway who ran second in the Golden Slipper. Rostova should win on her home turf you’d think. And gutsy mare Romneya will be starting her spring in the Group 3 Cockram Stakes.

In Sydney the Golden Slipper winner Phelan Ready will be kicking off his spring campaign in the Premier Stakes. He’s up against the old trooper Mentality and 2008 Doncaster winner, Triple Honour who also won this race last year before being sidelined by injury.

So the spring racing season is well under way now and can only get more exciting. And the big questions is: who will be the new super star?
