Cummings Heads To Kembla With Nearly $1m Prizemoney Difference

There might be a $970,000 difference in the prizemoney but Anthony Cummings is just as keen to get Memento to Kembla Grange on Saturday as he was for the Inglis Sires' at Randwick.

The Your Song filly missed a start in the Sires as second emergency, so will run in the Kiama Leagues Club Maiden Handicap against the older horses on the South Coast.

“She needs to have a 1400m run on Saturday to be ready for the Champagne Stakes and the thing about the two-year-old program is there are not many options for a horse like her,” Cummings said. “If you miss the Sires' this was the only suitable race.

“She is probably one of the best maidens around and I’m not worried about her against the older horses because I think she is well above average.”

Memento charged home from last on debut at Warwick Farm in November and again caught the eye making up late ground when runner-up to Limbo Soul at Rosehill on a track favouring leaders. She is Stakes-placed after running third in the Magic Night Stakes, behind Golden Slipper placegetter Tulip at her last appearance.

“She is one of those fillies that is always going to be better once the races step up in distance, we just had to find one for her,” Cummings said. “She already has black type and is going to get more.

“We have always been looking at these Group Ones at Randwick for her and it will be good her going to Kembla and getting the experience on the big track.

“Hopefully she can get the job done and that will make sure she gets a run in the Champagne Stakes.”
