Casquets To Attempt Final 2013 Blue Diamond Stakes Qualifier

February 13th, 2013

Trainer Mark Kavanagh will attempt to qualify juvenile Casquets for the 2013 Blue Diamond Stakes when she runs at Flemington this weekend.

The two-year-old will run in the Listed Talindert Stakes this Saturday in what will be her second career race start.

Her debut run resulted in a third placing behind Gregers in the $50,000 Sportingbet Plate at Moonee Valley Racecourse on February 1, 2013.

Kavanagh is confident that Casquets has what it takes to win at stakes level this weekend and earn entry into the 2013 Blue Diamond Stakes on February 23, 2013.

“She ran third on debut and has improved with the race experience,” Kavanagh said.

“I’m quite happy with her progress and it is just a matter of waiting and seeing where we go next.

“If she ran well on Saturday I may consider backing her up. She’s still in the Diamond.”

Meanwhile Crack A Roadie is also on track for a run in the 2013 Blue Diamond Stakes, despite having to be scratched from today’s Inglis Premier at Mornington.

The two-year-old had heat in his fetlock after casting himself in his stalls during the night, however, trainer Stephen Theodore will take an alternate route to the 2013 Blue Diamond Stakes.

“After getting cast in his box last night there was just a bit of heat in his fetlock,” Theodore said.

“We’ve had them scanned this morning and the vets have assured me that there’s nothing there to worry about.

“Within a 48 hour period which I’m hoping will be Saturday, the horse will be right to have a gallop.

“If all goes well Craig Williams will come down and give him a searching gallop on Tuesday and we continue on to the Diamond and the Sires.”

Crack A Roadie has won one of his two race starts and has earned more than $175,000 in prize money thus far.
