Regatta Rebel Heads To Gosford With Wind In Her Sails (Thursday)

By Julieanne Horsman

A steep drop in class could see Snowden Racing mare Regatta Rebel return to the winner’s circle at Gosford on Thursday.

The now four-year-old will start in the TAB.com.au Benchmark 70 Handicap (1,110m) and will be out prove she’s still go it after an eight month spell.

“She has come back in good order and the provincial class doesn’t seem beyond her,” co-trainer Paul Snowden said.

“She is obviously going to improve off the back of the run but she has done enough to be competitive.”

In 2015 the cleverly-named filly by Redoute’s Choice from Line Honours was earmarked as one to watch after finishing 2nd in the Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes (1100m).

She followed that up with a half-length 3rd in the Group 3 Ken Russell Memorial Classic before being spelled.

She came back and won a 1000m maiden at Kembla Grange in March last year but when she stepped up to Listed and Group company as a three-year-old she failed to make an impact.

“There was a bit of immaturity last preparation and she was lacking on the time side,” Snowden said.

“She has come along since then and her trial last month was solid.”

Regatta Rebel will carry 58kgs but has drawn well in barrier three and will have experienced jockey Kerrin McEvoy on board.

The TAB has her as $3.50 favourite on fixed odds but Snowden was reluctant to look too far ahead.

“We’ll get tomorrow out of the way before we make any decisions about where to go to next,” Snowden said.
