Gr1 Fillies Features For Sagaronne
Trainer Toby Edmonds confirmed that promising Queensland filly Sagaronne will be campaigned predominantly in Melbourne after she trialled in pleasing fashion at the Gold Coast yesterday. The 3YO daughter of Real Saga closed off strongly to finish within two lengths of Villiers Stakes winner Rudy in a trial over 1000m. Edmonds said that Sagaronne, who has not raced since finishing runner-up to high-class colt Press Statement in the Gr1 JJ Atkins Stakes two months ago, will be aimed at races such as the Gr1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) and Gr1 VRC Oaks (2500m). "She tacked on before the corner and made good ground down the middle of the track and was quite soft on the line so her trial was great," Edmonds told Sky Racing Radio. "She holds a fair bit of residual (fitness) getting up to the mile last prep so you expect her to trial up ok." He added: "She didn't blow much and came through it really well."
