Celebrity Girl On Comeback Trail

Thursday, 30th August 2012

Last year's favourite for the Gr1 Thousand Guineas will resume on Saturday in the $80,000 Sportingbet Series Heat (1000m) at Caulfield. Celebrity Girl (Starcraft-Dashing Granada, by Keltrice) was much hyped last spring after winning her first two outings very impressively.  After finishing 8th to Atlantic Jewel in the Thousand Guineas, Celebrity Girl had a spell and won a Listed race in SA over the summer. She has had a good long spell but has had two jumpouts to get her fit for Saturday. Jockey Michael Rodd, who has ridden her in all her 7 starts, noted: "She's got a great fresh record and we know that she's got a bit of class on her side. It's a little bit of a concern having the outside barrier and 60 kilos, that's not ideal because she does like to race up on the speed, but we'll just have to check the pattern of the day and see what we do."
