Coolmore Classic Next For Omei Sword
Meanwhile, richly talented filly Omei Sword (High Chaparral-Irish Lights, by Fastnet Rock) has also pulled up without issue after her eye-catching second placing behind La Bella Diosa in the Gr2 Surround Stakes at Randwick. "The beauty about her was that she was fit and ready to race three weeks ago so it wasn't as if she was running behind schedule," trainer Chris Waller told racingnsw.com.au. The 3YO will make her next appearance in the Gr1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) on 11 March, before attempting to give Waller a fifth straight success in the $3 million Gr1 Doncaster Mile, where she has been allocated 49kg. "She is a mature horse. Not a frail there-year-old filly. She is a mature, masculine filly," Waller said.
