Miss Promiscuity has beaten a field that included a Newmarket Handicap winner to cap a successful day for Lindsay Park.
The mare’s victory in Saturday’s $250,000 VOBIS Gold Sprint brought up a Caulfield treble for Lindsay Park trainers David Hayes and Tom Dabernig after two-year-old Valliano claimed the $150,000 VOBIS GOld Ingot and Red Bomber won the $250,000 VOBIS Gold Mile.
Miss Promiscuity made it four wins from eight starts and confirmed plans to target a Group One sprint for fillies and mares in Adelaide next month.
The five-year-old began well and jockey Craig Williams was able to stalk Jalan Jalan and Kirani to the turn before giving her full rein to make her winning run.
Miss Promiscuity ($5) defeated three-year-old Jalan Jalan ($8.50) by three-quarters of a length with The Quarterback, who drifted from $2.40 to $3.40, the same margin away third after sprinting home from worse than midfield.
Hayes said Williams’s ride helped Miss Promiscuity run out the 1200m.
“We said if you are travelling well then cuddle her right into the straight. And he really didn’t move on her until the 200-metre mark,” Hayes said.
“She has been racing really well for the best part of 12 months and she heads over for the Robert Sangster Stakes in Adelaide and she’ll be a pretty good chance.”
The Quarterback’s trainer Robbie Griffiths said plans remain to go to The Goodwood in Adelaide and then hopefully Royal Ascot.
“I was happy with his run,” Griffiths said.
“Naturally I would have liked to have won but as I’ve been saying all week, his style of racing is vulnerable around Caulfield.
“And that’s what brought him undone. Jalan Jalan ended up leading, Miss Promiscuity was stalking the lead and we just got too far out of it and couldn’t flow into the race when we needed to.”
Along with the Caulfield treble, Hayes and Dabernig also had wins in Sydney and Adelaide.
The VOBIS Gold Heath, another of six races on Saturday’s card restricted to VOBIS Gold nominated horses, was taken out by the Shawn Mathrick-trained Adirondack who was backed from $7 to $4.60.
Mathrick plans to take Adirondack on a working holiday to the Darwin Cup in August.
