Orr Stakes First-Up For Jameka

Wednesday, 7th December 2016

Star mare Jameka (Myboycharlie) has returned to trainer Ciaron Maher's Caulfield stable this week to commence preparations for her autumn campaign, reports racing.com. The Caulfield Cup winner will open her autumn campaign in the Gr1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on 11 February with her primary target being the Gr1 Australian Cup (2000m) at Flemington in March. "She'll probably kick off in the Orr and then run in the Peter Young and Australian Cup and that might do her or we might just give her one more run but it certainly won't be a taxing campaign," Maher said. "She's done well down in the paddock at Warrnambool and we'll probably bring her back into the stable today (Tuesday) and map out a plan heading towards the Australian Cup." Jameka was spelled after pulling up lame in last month's Melbourne Cup.
