As premier Brisbane trainer Tony Gollan prepares to open his satellite stable in Sydney, Zelady’s Night Out will try to kick-start the new venture with a feature win in the Silver Shadow Stakes.
Tommy Berry will ride the dual stakes-winning filly when she has her first start as a three-year-old in Saturday’s Group Two race over 1200 metres at Randwick.
Gollan has finalised negotiations with the Australian Turf Club and will have 20 boxes at Rosehill from late this month.
He hopes to eventually have 32 boxes at Rosehill and have regular Sydney Saturday runners.
Zelady’s Night Out hasn’t run since finishing sixth in the Reisling Stakes at Rosehill in March.
The filly has won three of her five starts including the Group Three B J McLachlan Stakes and Listed Calaway Gal Stakes last season.
“Things didn’t go right late in her campaign as a two-year-old but she has had a good break and I am expecting her to race well,” Gollan said.
Zelady’s Night Out is one of 14 entries for the Silver Shadow headed by the Chris Waller-trained Omei Sword who is the $3.80 favourite in the TAB’s first market ahead of Calliope at $5.
Omei Sword won her debut in February then finished second to Godolphin’s Calliope in the Group Two Magic Night Stakes.
At her third and most recent race start, Omei Sword was unplaced in the Group One Sires’ Produce Stakes won by Yankee Rose.
Zelady’s Night Out is at $26.
