Stable Double At Caulfield

Darren Weir's two Caulfield winners last Saturday, Manhattan Maid and Sublimity, are now looking for some black-type in Adelaide. Manhattan Maid, who had her rivals off the bit turning for home last Saturday at only her second start, is raced by her breeders John and Jill Sutcliffe. Born and raised at Gerry Ryan's Limerick Lane, she'll now be prepared for the $100,000 Dequetteville Stakes over 1100m at Morphettville on Sunday May 8, which is SA's richest meeting. On the same day, Sublimity is also a possibility to head to Adelaide to tackle either the Listed $100,000 Centaurea Stakes for Fillies and Mares over 2000m or the $200,000 Group 3 RA Lee Stakes over 1600m. The lightly-raced but highly talented mare, didn't race for almost 16 months because of a serious leg injury after powering home to win the Alexandra Stakes over 1600m at Moonee Valley on October 24, 2009. Sublimity who strolled home with the final event last Saturday after making a quick move coming to the turn, was bred by one of "Weiry's'' biggest owners John Richards who races her with Melville and Scott Charles. The stable was very unlucky not to get a treble after Rue Maple was ‘knocked’ down late when finishing second.

The successful Easter weekend continued on Monday when three-year-old filly Champagne Esprit was too strong for her rivals in the 0-62 Handicap over 1200m at Swan Hill. The win weas a milestone for the stable as it was the 100th for the season. Now with another three months of the season remaining, ‘Weiry’ needs another 28 to break his personel best tally set five years ago.
