Valuable stakes victory for Exocet

22nd May, 2017

Not only did Exocet earn a well-deserved break winning the Listed Centaurea Stakes over 2019 metres at Morphettville on Saturday but significantly increased her value as a future broodmare.

The well-bred daughter of Smart Missile was victorious by a long neck on Saturday, which came a fortnight after her Wagga Guineas success.

Rider Craig Williams said following the win ‘the filly was very brave, she was strong to the line and was going away from the second horse over the concluding stages’

Anthony Freedman, who co-trains the filly in partnership with his brother Lee said “she has done a terrific job this preparation, she has raced at Randwick, Wagga, Moonee Valley, Sandown and now Morphettville”.

‘It is important for these well-bred fillies to get black-type as a three-year-olds and we have been able to achieve that for her owner Jonathan Munz, which is fantastic’.

“She will now head to the spelling paddock and be set for the spring. We feel it would be too tough of an ask to travel to Brisbane for the Oaks”

“There are plenty of black-type options throughout the spring for mares so we will discuss our options with Jonathan (Munz) and Rod (Douglas) before confirming our plans, but the Group Two Matriarch Stakes during Cup week looks a nice target for her”.

Being out of the Zabeel mare Crillion, Exocet is a half-sister to the stakes winner Ready For Victory (More Than Ready) who now stands at Sun Stud.
