Gr1 Swansong For Abidewithme?

Thursday, 2nd February 2017

Meanwhile, smart mare and Thorndon Mile placegetter Abidewithme will be given one more chance at Group One glory when she lines up in the Gr1 Herbie Dyke Stakes at Te Rapa on Saturday week, reports theinformant.co.nz. The Redoute's Choice mare is in foal to Tavistock and under the 120-day pregnancy regulations she faces mandatory retirement on 12 February, just one day after the Te Rapa feature. "That was much more like it in the Thorndon and she's come through it well," said co-trainer Stephen Autridge. "She's got good form over the Te Rapa 2000 metres, so it would be nice to give her one more chance."  Bred by Sir Patrick and Lady Hogan's Cambridge Stud, Abidewithme is a half-sister to VRC Oaks runner-up Miss Scarlatti (Stravinsky) from the Gr2-winning Zabeel mare Crimson. This is also the family of Gr1 VRC Derby winner Omnicorp & Gr2 Sandown Cup winner Pharostan.
