Can Daysee Win Another Group One?

In Industry News & Views, Thoroughbred Racing by Ben Ready

The lure of the Group I BRC Tatts Tiara on June 23, the last Group I of the Australian racing season, has kept a number of quality mares in work with several trialling at Randwick on Tuesday morning including Domesday’s Group I ATC Coolmore Classic winner Daysee Doom.

The Ron Quinton trained mare has not raced since finishing unplaced in the Group I ATC Queen of the Turf Stakes on April 18 but indicated she was ready to rock and roll with a good second in her 1200 metre trial behind another possible Tiara contender in Faraway Town.

“That’s all I wanted her to do,” Quinton told Racenet’s Clinton Payne.

“She had a nice morning out.

“I told Andrew (Adkins) I didn’t want her to have too tougher workout on the heavy track, it was a bog.

“She went nice, I was very happy with the trial. It’s all she needed to do because she only had two weeks off.”

Quinton said Daysee Doom (image Steve Hart) would remain in Sydney, continuing her build up before heading to Queensland next week for the $500,000 Tatt’s Tiara (1350m).

“It’s going to be a strong race this year but she’s as worthy as any being there, she’s a Group I winner,” Quinton said.

“She’s shown she’s an A-grader so she’s well treated under the weight-for-age conditions.

“There’s are not too many Group Is during the year in the distance range that suits her, so you have a go at them when they come up and she’s a good fresh mare.”

Three year-old fillies Champagne Cuddles (Not a Single Doubt) and Moss Trip (Mossman) are favourites for the race which was elevated to Group I status in 2007.
