Two well-performed Darley-owned mares will aim to bow out of racing on a winning note at Friday’s Wyong Gold Cup meeting.

Ramornie Handicap winner Jerezana will have her final racetrack appearance in the Listed Mona Lisa Stakes (1350m) while Group-placed stablemate Status Quo will attempt to claim a breakthrough stakes success in her final outing in the Listed Wyong Gold Cup (2100m).

Trainer Peter Snowden confirmed Friday’s races would be the pair’s swansongs before they head to the breeding barn.

“Status Quo will go around at Wyong and that will be her last start, she’s off to stud after that,” Snowden said.

Status Quo was scratched from a race at Warwick Farm on Saturday to run at Wyong.

The daughter of Lonhro has won two of her 23 starts with another eight placings.

Among her placings was a second in the Group Three Adrian Knox Stakes (2000m) and a third in the Listed Gold Coast Bracelet (1800m) during her three-year-old season.

Status Quo, to be ridden by Corey Brown, is a $21 chance in the Wyong feature with the Gai Waterhouse-trained Essence Of Success favourite at $4.60.

Essence Of Success will be ridden by grand slam-winning jockey Chris Munce who replaces another grand slam-winning hoop in Jim Cassidy who was ruled out of the meeting on Thursday due to a hand injury.

The day’s other feature is the Mona Lisa Stakes in which Jerezana will look to add to her Ramornie Handicap win of two starts ago.

Josh Parr rode the mare in her very first start and has the reins in her final start as well.

“This is her swansong too,” Snowden confirmed.

“She owes us nothing, she’s been a great mare and has done a tremendous job.”

Jerezana was at $6.50 on TAB Sportsbet on Friday with first-up Toy Show Quality winner Red Tracer the dominant $1.95 favourite.

The Chris Waller-trained Red Tracer is chasing her fourth straight stakes victory and jockey Hugh Bowman believes Waller has found another winnable black-type race for the consistent four-year-old.

“Certainly she’s well placed in the Mona Lisa,” Bowman said.

Red Tracer held off Group One winner Secret Admirer first-up in the Toy Show (1300m) on a heavy Warwick Farm track on August 20 with Jerezana coming in third that day.
