STAKES WIN FOR FRANKEL'S MISS FABULASS
FRANKEL's Miss Fabulass made the most of a late change of plan when she stormed home under Andrew Mallyon to land the Spirit of Boom Fillies & Mares Classic L. at Doomben on Saturday 23rd November.
Taken from the ANZ Bloodstock News, 24th November 2019:
The mare missed a start in last week's $1 million The Hunter as an emergency and after drawing wide in a support race on the Newcastle program, trainer Kris Lees decided to bypass that engagement and instead head north. That decision paid off handsomely as Miss Fabulass, racing from barrier five, was able to make the most of a breakneck early pace to power home from a long way back and beat Improvement by a short neck with a further half-length to Jadentom in third.
A tilt at the Magic Millions Fillies and Mares on 11th January could be on the agenda for Miss Fabulass following her win at Doomben. Trainer Kris Lees has yet to firm up plans for the four-year-old although his Queensland representative Mel Eggleston believes a trip to the Gold Coast is possible. "I am not certain where she will go now but one option would be to try and get a wild card into the Magic Millions Fillies and Mares race,” he said. "She has had bad barriers and as a mare who wants to over-race that has been no help. But as you saw today when she settles she can unleash a big sprint late.”
