Moyglare aim for Oliver ace
Thursday 9 August 2012
Andrew Oliver is targeting next month's Moyglare Stud Stakes as the next port of call for his unbeaten filly Sendmylovetorose.
After a most impressive debut at Navan in early June, the juvenile headed to Royal Ascot as a major contender for the Albany Stakes.
However, after becoming wedged underneath the starting stalls, she had to be withdrawn at the start.
She has since shown that frightening experience had no lasting effect by winning at the Curragh and completing her hat-trick in the Cherry Hinton Stakes at Newmarket's July meeting.
Oliver considered supplementing his stable star for a Group race this weekend, but he has elected to wait for the Moyglare on September 9.
"She's in good form and we did toy with the idea of supplementing her for either the Phoenix Stakes or the Debutante Stakes this weekend," said Oliver.
"But we just felt it would be a difficult task for her to take on the colts in the Phoenix and she would have to carry a Group Two penalty in the Debutante, so we've decided to wait and go straight to the Moyglare Stud Stakes with her.
"She had quite a busy time of things earlier in the season and although she's very tough, it is bound to take some sort of toll and the break won't do her any harm.
"She had three runs in just over a month and you could say effectively she had four runs having done all the travelling and everything to Royal Ascot."
