Brideoake’s Princess primed for Sunline Stakes HORSE RACING
By Ben Triandafillou DAVID Brideoake’s Group 1 winning mare, Princess Jenni, looks set to strike in the Group Two Sunline Stakes (1600m) on Friday 20 March after a forward showing first-up at Flemington on the weekend. Settling at the rear of the field in the Listed March Stakes on Saturday 7 March, Princess Jenni flashed home late to place behind the wellsupported Hawkes-trained runner, Wild Planet. Trained out of Brideoake’s Mornington-based set-up, the four-yearold mare has consistently struck winning form at each of her second-up runs throughout her career – a record that currently reads three wins from three attempts. Brideoake said he couldn’t be much happier with her performance on the weekend, given that she generally improves with the run. “Her run was terrific first-up,” Brideoake said. “I thought it was probably as good of a beginning to a prep that she’s had and she’s pulled up great since.” Her next target, the Group Two Sunline Stakes, will be run at The Valley, a track that she is unbeaten at (two wins from two starts) having previously won the Group Two Stocks Stakes and Group Three Alexandra Stakes, also run over the same distance. Brideoake said it’s all there for her to put in a forward showing in a couple of weeks’ time if all continues to go to plan.
“She has a great record around The Valley, she’s won a couple of Stakes race there, so we are just hoping that it all pans out now,” he said.
A trip across the border to Sydney could also be on the cards for Princess Jenni following her run in Sunline Stakes.
