Connections of Gr.1 New Zealand Oaks (2400m) winner Sentimental Miss are hoping rain is in the weather forecast for Sydney next month.
If the weather does play its part then the Lisa Latta-trained filly will likely head across the Tasman to compete in the Gr.1 Australian Oaks (2400m) at Randwick.
“She’s been nominated for the Australian Oaks and she is in that field,” Go Racing Syndicate manager Albert Bosma said.
“The weather forecast will play a big part in that. If it is going to be a hard track we won’t go, but if there’s rain around and she is well then we will.”
Bosma was pleased with the win on Saturday, but said his filly will now head to the paddock for a few days before being set for the Australian Oaks.
“She’s felt the run on Saturday. She’s quite tired from it, so we are going to put her in the paddock for three or four days and we will then bring her back and put her on the water walker for a week,” Bosma said.
“We will get her back in the stable and we will make the decision on whether she goes in the week of the ATC Oaks.
“We would go into that race without another run, she’s a naturally fit horse and a natural stayer.”
