Lees Has The Power For Saturday's Provincial Final

Kris Lees will have at least two runners as he seeks to win the inaugural Sky Racing Spring Provincial Series Final at Kembla Grange on Saturday.

And I Am Awesome will be declared an emergency as a result of her fourth placing behind Manhattan Mist in the opening 1350m heat at Wyong on October 21.

The $50,000 heats were run at each of the five provincial clubs with the three placegetters all automatically qualifying for the $150,000 1600m Final.

Andrew Gibbons will ride High Power, who won the fourth heat at Newcastle over 1500m on November 18 when partnered by Corey Brown.

Gibbons rode stablemate Chalmers, who ran fourth that day and has now been elevated into the field following the withdrawal of another qualified runner.

Lees has booked Koby Jennings for the Kembla Grange mount.

Meanwhile, Lees hopes to have at least one representative in the feature race named after his late father Max, which will be run at Newcastle on Sunday.

He has nominated Australian Bloodstock pair Vinrose and Snowzone for the $75,000 Max Lees Classic (900m).

The two-year-old sprint was introduced last year and won by Jonker. Prizemoney has been boosted from $50,000 for the second running.

“I will gallop both youngsters in the morning, and then make a decision,” Lees said on Tuesday.

“Obviously, I would like to have at least one runner in Dad’s race.”

Vinrose and Snowzone both won 800m trials at Newcastle on October 22 (the rail was 8.5 metres out) - and clocked almost identical times.

I Am Invincible filly Vinrose ran 48.78secs and Snitzel colt Snowzone ran 48.77s.

The latter had previously finished third to Henschel in a 800m trial at Gosford on November 7.

Meanwhile, Lees has decided to end Prized Icon’s Perth campaign after his unplaced run in last Saturday’s $1m Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) at Ascot where he started at $14 and finished ninth (beaten five lengths) behind favorite Galaxy Star.
