Armed For Action for New Zealand

6th February, 2012

Unbeaten filly, Armed For Action, who easily won Saturday's Listed Queen Adelaide Stakes (1000m) at Morphettville, might be joining stablemate Ockham's Razor in New Zealand.

Part-owner, John O'Neill, revealed on Twitter that trainer Anthony Freedman is considering sending Armed For Action across the Tasman to race in some Group races in the next month.

"Armed For Action was a nice win in Adelaide - maybe off to New Zealand for some Group races," O'Neill "tweeted".

Ockham's Razor, who brilliantly won the Karaka Million at Ellerslie last week, also will remain in New Zealand to compete in the Group 1 races in February and March.

Armed For Action is likely to be aimed for the $100,000 Group 2 Matamata Breeders' Stakes (1200m, Matamata), for 2YO fillies, on February 25. She could clash with Ockham's Razor in the $200,000 Group 1 Diamond Stakes (1200m, Ellerslie) on March 10.

Armed For Action, ridden by Daniel Moor, showed her usual blistering speed to easily win the Queen Adelaide - her second win from two starts.

The other option for Armed For Action is to remain in Australia and run in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m, Caulfield) on February 25.

Armed For Action, whose granddam is the champion mare Bravery, cost only $90,000 at the 2011 Inglis Easter Yearling Sales. She is another example of the Freedman brothers' ability to buy quality racehorses at the bottom end of the market.
