Stud To Unveil Well-Bred Fillies
A leading Matamata farm will produce two of the more interesting runners at the New Plymouth meeting today, reports NZ Racing Desk. The Waikato Stud-owned Fashionably will make her first appearance in the HTL Insurance Maiden 3YO while the nursery's well-related home-bred Lucy Wyldstyle will debut in the Nulook Aluminium Maiden. Fashionably is a daughter of Redoute's Choice and dual Gr1 New Zealand Stakes and Queensland Oaks winner Scarlett Lady. Trained by Stephen Autridge and Jamie Richards, Fashionably was put aside after two trials in the autumn and she has come back to run fourth in her last trial at Cambridge earlier this month. "She's been working well and we had her in at Pukekohe, but she drew wide so we scratched her," Te Akau Racing manager Brad Taylor said. "She's got a nice barrier in five at New Plymouth and we would expect her to run very well." Lucy Wyldstyle is by Savabeel and is a grand-daughter of Legs, winner of the New Zealand Oaks and the Hawke's Bay Kelt Capital Stakes. "She's had a couple of slight hold-ups with a cold and then the wet tracks, but she's good now and again we'd expect her to go well," Taylor said.
