Group One next for crack filly

Avantage - Trish Dunell

Trish Dunell

Unbeaten filly Avantage won’t race again before her Group One autumn target.

The Fastnet Rock two-year-old won for the fourth consecutive time when she beat her stablemate Al Hasa in the Karaka Million (1200m) at Ellerslie.

“We’re pleased with the way she came through that run and she’ll be going straight to the Sistema Stakes on March 10,” said Jamie Richards, who trains in partnership with Stephen Autridge. 

Meanwhile, stablemate Heroic Valour will run in Saturday’s Gr.1 BCD Group Sprint (1400m) following his last-start fifth in the Gr.1 Telegraph (1200m) at Trentham.

“He’s well and ready for Te Rapa,” Richards said.
