NZB Filly of the Year Series Continues With Desert Gold Sta

NZB Filly of the Year Series Continues With Desert Gold Stakes

There is the potential for more major movement on the New Zealand Bloodstock Filly of the Year points table when the sixth leg of the Series, the $70,000 Group 3 Wellfield Desert Gold Stakes (1600m), is run at Trentham on Saturday.

For the second race in a row, the top two fillies on the leader board are absent. Group 3 LawnMaster Eulogy Stakes and Group 2 Eight Carat Classic winner Volpe Veloce (Foxwedge) is running instead in the NZB Insurance Karaka 3YO Mile at Ellerslie on Sunday, while Group 1 1000 Guineas heroine La Diosa (NZ) (So You Think) is being prepared for a Sydney autumn campaign.

With 14 and 12 points respectively, Volpe Veloce and La Diosa have a clear lead in the Filly of the Year Series. But Saturday’s race offers 6 points to the winner, 3 for second and 1.5 for third, providing the opportunity for other fillies to narrow that gap. Read More...
