Nieta In For Best Campaign Yet

By Brad Gray At Royal Randwick

A host of stars were on display at Royal Randwick this morning but perhaps none were more impressive than explosive sprinting mare Nieta.

The now five-year-old towed Blake Shinn to the front of the field and despite never having the hand break removed, she put a gap on the second-placed Ghisoni.

“She went super and is back in good shape. She has got another trial to get through first but we’re looking at the Concorde Stakes (September 2) first up. We’re really looking forward to getting her back to the races,” said John Thompson.

“She is going so well that she was fresh and wanted to work this morning. The way Blake is riding in trials at the moment, he is letting them all roll a little bit so that had something to do with the margin but in saying that she is going particularly well.

“This will be her preparation hopefully. That’s why we cut the last preparation short to come into the spring in good shape and at this stage it’s all on track.”

As for what the spring holds for Nieta after the Group Three Concorde Stakes, Thompson said he was keen to keep a flexible programme for the daughter of Nicconi.
