Sagaronne Progressing Well

Thursday, 17th September 2015

Gold Coast trainer Toby Edmonds has provided an update on exciting filly Sagaronne who is set to make her next appearance in the Gr2 Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m) at Caulfield on Saturday week. The daughter of Real Saga, who races in the red and yellow colours of Segenhoe Thoroughbreds, announced herself as a potential top-class racehorse in the winter when winning the Listed The Phoenix over 1350m before a fast-finishing second behind classy colt Press Statement in the Gr1 JJ Atkins Stakes (1600m) at Doomben in June. She then resumed with a luckless 11th behind Stay With Me in the Listed Atlantic Jewel Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley 12 days ago, when held up hopelessly on the fence for the entire straight.  "She's come through the run well, although she didn't do a great deal," said Edmonds. "I'm looking forward to the Guineas Prelude now." He added: "She looks great. She has a little way to trim up yet but she has a long prep ahead of her and she should progress as the distances get longer." Sagaronne's  primary spring target is the Gr1 VRC Oaks (2500m) at Flemington on Thursday, 5 November.
