Lees Adds Serene Miss To Championship Team

By Brad Gray

Kris Lees has added Serene Miss to his team heading towards the Provincial Championships Final in April, after the four-year-old mare took out the $150,000 Polytrack Provincial Championships Qualifier (1200m) at Gosford.

Just Dreaming took out the Wyong Qualifier while Bastia qualified at Hawkesbury. Filling the other two spots at Gosford were Newsfan and Can't Find Snippy.

"She doesn't (know how to lay down), and her record states that having only been beaten once," said Kris Lees’ stable rep Cameron Swan.

Aaron Bullock, who rides Serene Miss in all of her trackwork, had to waste hard to get down to the 55.5kg to take the mount on the daughter of Northern Meteor.

"I don't ride much under 56kg," revealed Bullock, "And that's why I told my manager just to take the one ride. If I had to come here and ride three or four it would have been a bit too much."

"There was more speed than what I thought and... I couldn't get in so I had to be patient. We were caught wide the whole way so credit to her. This mare should be unbeaten. She is going to be a really good horse."

Bullock also rode Just Dreaming, again for owners Ron and Judy Wanless, but gave Serene Miss the nod over her stablemate, who earlier in the day finished seventh beaten a length in the G1 Coolmore Classic at Rosehill Gardens.

"They are both good horses and I'd be happy to ride either of them if they let me," said Bullock.

"This mare will make Stakes grade but they have aimed her towards the Championships. I couldn't put much between them though."

Kim Waugh was thrilled with the run of lightly-raced galloper Newsfan and is confident she'll run a strong 1400m come the final.

"She is a lovely mare and still learning. To be running (so well) against these seasoned horses is fantastic," said Waugh.

Meanwhile, Michelle Ritchie was "over the moon" with the run of Can't Find Snippy who ran third, after starting at $151 with TAB Fixed Odds.
