Oaks Campaign Looms For Attard's Improved Filly

Hawkesbury trainer Jason Attard is thinking about a possible Queensland Oaks campaign with Kitty’s Own as she returns to racing in the Joseph Michael Stephen Memorial Class 1 Handciap at Kembla Grange on Saturday.

The Rothesay filly is a winner of her only appearance at 1300m on her home track and returns at 1500m as Attard plans for Brisbane.

“She really didn’t show us that much until the blinkers went on and then she was a different horse,” Attard said. “We still weren’t expecting her to win first-up. She has been given to strength up and I always thought she would become a stayer.

“I would have to say we will be looking for her to finish off on Saturday and given us a reason to go to Brisbane, so if she did that I would be happy. She is one of those horses that needs time and ground but she has surprised us in the past.”

After three barrier trials, Attard reached for the blinkers and Kitty’s Own responded with an aggressive trial 10 days before she was a debut winner on October 26.

“We gave her a rev up out of the barriers and she bolted. She came out and showed her grinding style in the win first-up and in her work she works like a stayer,” Attard said. “We brought her back this time to give her a chance at the Oaks if she shows she is good enough. She is a nice filly that could be up to better things.”

Attard also takes Zedge to Kembla for the Charge Of Beersheba maiden Handicap to close the program: “She is a mare that is best ridden quiet, so we will go back to that and hope she can find the line at 2000m,” he said.
