Griante First-Up In Regal Roller
Griante will launch her spring campaign in search of Gr1 honours at Caulfield on Saturday, reports NZ Racing Desk. The 5YO daughter of Good Journey will resume in the Listed Regal Roller Stakes following a trial placing at Cranbourne earlier this week. "Dwayne (Dunn) said he never moved on her and she was strong late," said trainer David Brideoake, who races the mare with New Zealand owners Brendan and Jo Lindsay. Griante, a dual Gr3 winner of the ATC Wenona Girl Handicap and MRC Sportingbet Series Final, took her form to another level in the autumn when finishing third behind Lucky Hussler in the Gr1 William Reid Stakes at Moonee Valley in March.
