Applegate May Miss Preview On Way To 2012 Blue Diamond Stakes

January 23rd, 2012

Peter Snowden will make a decision on whether to run 2012 Blue Diamond Stakes hopeful Applegate in the Blue Diamond Preview today.

Applegate is nominated to run in the 2012 Blue Diamond Stakes for fillies at Caulfield this Saturday January 27, 2012.

“She is in Melbourne, we are there and ready to go, but I just want to see how she works on Tuesday morning,” Snowden said yesterday.

“I am leaning towards not running.

“We still have a few options and can give her a barrier trial instead.

“The Blue Diamond is where we are heading and if she doesn’t run she will kick off in the Prelude a fortnight before the main race.”

Applegate won on debut in the Listed Emirates Airline Plate for two-year-old fillies on November 1, 2011.

Jockey Kerrin McEvoy has made it known that he is willing to ride Applegate at any occasion this autumn racing carnival.

“It takes a pretty special one to win in nice fashion down the straight for the first time out and they can improve on to bigger and better things,” McEvoy said.

“I haven’t had much to do with her this campaign. I didn’t have much to do with her leading in to that win.

“She won like a really nice filly and it would be nice if she could come on from that this campaign.”
