While yet to confirm a path for the exciting rising three-year-old through the 2014 Spring Racing Carnival, trainer Peter Moody has revealed talented filly Bring Me The Maid has returned to light work ahead of a campaign that is likely to include an appearance in the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) on October 4th.
Owned by the syndicate of Wylie Dalziel and the late, great Roy Higgins, Bring Me The Maid performed well over her maiden racing campaign through the 2014 autumn; claiming a total of two wins and two minor places from just four starts.
Training alongside stable mate and likely 2014 Cox Plate contender Dissident at Brisbane’s Eagle Farm Racecourse after spelling at Washpool Lodge, Moody said he is yet to set a path for the Sebring filly this time in, but made a strong hint towards events such as the Flight Stakes.
“She’s coming along well but she’s got another week of evens before she starts having a gallop,” Moody told AAP.
“What path I go with her I’m not sure. There’s the fillies’ series in Sydney, the Golden Rose or the Melbourne series.
“I think she’ll become a really strong miler next season.”
Poking clear to win the Listed Sports 1000 (1000m) on debut on March 1st, Bring Me The Maid was unlucky to finish third when blocked for a run in the Listed St Albans Stakes (1200m) less-than two weeks later, but returned to the winner’s circle with one of her best performances so-far in the Group 2 Magic Night Stakes (1200m) on March 29th.
Given little hope of impact when lining up alongside a particularly talented field of two-year-olds, the filly out of Maid For Me produced a keen turn of foot to finish third in the major Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) last time out on April 5th.
