Shoals returns with Guineas targets

7th July, 2017

Unbeaten two-year-old filly Shoals has returned to the Pinecliff stable of Lee and Anthony Freedman in preparation for her spring campaign.

Trainer’s Lee and Anthony Freedman have initially pencilled in the Group One Thousand Guineas at Caulfield as a spring target for the daughter of Fastnet Rock, early markets have her rated as an $11 second favourite.

Shoals enjoyed a two-month spell following her impressive victory in the Group Two Percy Sykes Stakes over 1200 metres at Randwick during the Championships.

“She has returned in terrific order, she has developed further during the break” Anthony said.

“Like it is with all fillies, the aim during the spring will be to enhance her value and gain black-type for her owners (Jonathan Munz and Arrowfield Stud).

Naturally the Thousand Guineas will be her initial target”.

Shoals is currently rated a $11 second favourite in features markets for the Group One on October 14.

Freedman said Foxwedge filly Petition has also returned to the stable a fortnight ago and would more than likely be aimed towards the feature mares races throughout the spring.

“She has done extremely well during her break, she looks tremendous.

“Her ultimate goal will be the Myer Classic during Cup week at Flemington, however we will assess her form before confirming our plans”

Petition is rated a $15 chance in the Myer Classic with Sportsbet.

Another spring prospect Mr Sneaky has also recently returned to the stable following his mishap at the barriers before the Scone Guineas.

“He has improved with the break, we will continue to take him through the grades early in the spring but we expect him to be up to Group level” Freedman reported.
