24/11/2020 Enthaar to target Diamond and Slipper
Co-trainer Ciaron Maher has outlined future plans for the talented juveniles he and David Eustace have unleashed in recent weeks.
Enthaar (Written Tycoon) shot to the top of the early betting markets for next March’s Golden Slipper Stakes (Gr 1, 1200m) when she blitzed her Gimcrack Stakes (Gr 3, 1000m) rivals by three lengths on debut at Randwick last month. "She'll go to the (Blue) Diamond (at Caulfield in February) before heading up for the Slipper," Maher told Racing.com. "I think she's the type of filly capable of doing it (Group 1 double)." Stablemate Sneaky Five (Fastnet Rock), who is unbeaten in two runs in Melbourne and Sydney this spring, is also heading to the Golden Slipper, but first she will attempt to land the $2m Inglis Millennium (RL, 1100m) at Warwick Farm in February having already netted the $1 million Golden Gift (1100m) at Rosehill. Fake Love (I Am Invincible), who is owned by similar interests to last season’s Magic Millions 2YO Classic (RL, 1200m) winner Away Game (Snitzel), will follow a similar path to the Gold Coast as the latter did, taking in a leadup contest in Brisbane. Fake Love won the Debutant Stakes (Listed, 1000m) at Caulfield in October prior to her last-start fourth in the Ottawa Stakes (Gr 3, 1000m) on November 5.
