Cup challenge for Consenus

Consenus - Grant Matthew (Race Images Palmerston North)

Grant Matthew (Race Images Palmerston North)

Group One-winning mare Consensus added a second Group Three win to her record at Trentham on Saturday when victorious in the Trentham Stakes (2100m) and the seven-year-old mare will be aiming to increase that tally to three next month.

The Stephen McKee-trained runner will bypass the Gr.1 Herbie Dyke Stakes (2000m) next month in favour of the Gr.3 Platinum Homes Taranaki Cup (1800m) at New Plymouth on February 2.

“She’s nominated for the Herbie Dyke Stakes, but we will probably miss that one,” McKee said. 

“She hasn’t gone her best races at Te Rapa, so she will run in the Taranaki Cup in about three weeks’ time.

“She has pulled up well, she was home just after midnight on Saturday night, she looks really well.”
