FOXPLAY

The Chris Waller trained filly was an impressive winner when starting her 3YO season in the G2 Furious Stakes. Sitting mid-field as the field wheeled into the home straight, Hugh Bowman was able to angle across heels and had clear track in front of him. As Bacarella kicked clear at the 200m Foxplay was still 3-4 lengths off the lead. At the 150m she started to eat up the ground and by the 75m had hit the front and rolled on to win by just under 2 lengths. Starting her career in the G3 Widden Stakes when finishing 5th behind Honesty Prevails, she was given one more start before being sent for a spell. A three start campaign returning two seconds and a maiden win at Rosehill over 1350m in a 2YO handicap saw the strikingly coloured filly sent for another small break.

BACARELLA

There could be some excuses made for Bacarella last start in the G2 Furious Stakes where the Gary Moore trained filly still managed to land a credible second placing. After driving through at the start in an attempt to get forward she then found herself in front and was left to set the tempo. Still in front with 100m to run it was only the finishing power of Foxplay that she could not withstand. The heavy 8 track may have played against the filly and leading may not prove to be her best option in the run. At her first up run this campaign she finished 2nd to Omei Sword in the G2 Silver Shadow Stakes. Kept wide in that race she started from the outside barrier and was never closer than three wide. Fighting on well in the straight she could not match the sprint of Omei Sword but... read more There could be some excuses made for Bacarella last start in the G2 Furious Stakes where the Gary Moore trained filly still managed to land a credible second placing.

SKYLIGHT GLOW

Skylight Glow resumed in the G3 Ming Dynasty Quality under handicap conditions and run as the top-weight carrying 58kg over 1400m. Leading the field she was in front at the 200m before being overpowered by the colt Swear and then grabbed by High Mist right on the post to settle for 3rd. High Mist has since been an impressive mid-week winner. The James Cummings filly was a back-to-back winner to close out her 2YO season. The first win came in a 1250m set weights maiden at Canterbury defeating Invincibella. The second win came at Randwick under set weights and penalties over 1400m in posting a half-length victory. Trialling twice prior to resuming Glyn Schofield took the ride in both trials and will ride here in the Tea Rose.

THE ROUGHIE TIP

A MIST OPPORTUNITY

Grey-bay is not a common colouring in horses and yet here we see two line up in the same race with A Mist Opportunity and Foxplay both listed under that colouring. Both fillies are by the stallion Foxwedge with A Mist Opportunity greyer in colour. The Team Hawkes trained filly faces a stiff test here at just her second career start, however the Hawkes are astute enough not to throw a filly to the wolves if they did not think she could handle it. They have been patient with the filly, trialling her early in her 2YO season and then giving her a break straight away. Trialling again in February she was then given another break before coming back for another trial in June. Freshened before winning a trial in mid-August, the filly kicked off her career in a 3YO fillies maiden over 1100m at Canterbury where she was able... read more Grey-bay is not a common colouring in horses and yet here we see two line up in the same race with A Mist Opportunity and Foxplay both listed under that colouring.

The filly opened on the 9th line of the UBET market at $31 and $7.75. read less

The Tea Rose Stakes is a Group 2 horse race for three-year-old fillies. The event is held on George Main Stakes Day, one of the biggest days at the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival. The race is run at Sydney’s Randwick Racecourse over the 1400m distance, under set weight conditions. The Tea Rose Stakes is often used as a lead up to the Group 1 Flight Stakes, a $400,000 race run on the last day of the carnival at the same venue. Fillies that contested the Group 2 Furious Stakes tend to go on to compete in this race. The event was inaugurated in 1980 as a Listed Race, before being elevated to Group 3 status two years later.

In 1985 it was upgrade again to Group 2. In 2014, John Thompson’s talented filly First Seal claimed the Tea Rose Stakes before going on to win the Flight Stakes two weeks later. Hugh Bowman has been hugely successful in this event in recent times, winning five editions between 2004 and 2013. Other notable winners of this event include; Streama (2011), More Strawberries (2010), More Joyous (2009), Samantha Miss (2008), Ha Ha (2001), Sunline (1998), and Emancipation (1982).
