Leotie will be on trial for bigger interstate races

Leotie will be on trial for bigger interstate races when she runs for the first time in six weeks at Caulfield.

The Henry Dwyer-trained three-year-old will run in a 1200m race against her own age on Saturday with a view to races in NSW and Queensland.

Leotie has won three of her seven starts and was considered a Thousand Guineas contender last spring but the filly has been well-beaten at her two most recent appearances.

Her spring campaign came to a close after her 10th in the Thousand Guineas (1600m), after which she underwent arthroscopic surgery to remove a bone chip from a fetlock.

She finished last on her return in an 1100m fillies race at Flemington last month when she pulled up with a poor post-race recovery.

Dwyer has Leotie based at his coastal property at St Leonards to keep her out of the city environment and he was pleased with the way she performed in a jump-out at Geelong on Wednesday.

“She trialled well and she’ll go to a 1200 three-year-old race next Saturday and then we’ll probably take her up to NSW for the Scone Guineas two weeks later,” Dwyer said.

“It’s a $400,000 Inglis race and from there we’ll look to a couple of black-type races in Queensland with her.”

He said all being well the Group One Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) would be the ultimate goal.

“She’s stakes placed and got beaten a head by I Am A Star in the Quezette Stakes and probably should have beaten her,” he said.

“But she’s had a lot of issues since then. She’s trained out at St Leonards and lives out in a paddock there.

“She’s got a lot of breathing issues and allergic issues to things in the city environment.

“I think we’re on top of what was holding her back.”

Saturday’s race will be important with a view to the interstate options.

“I’d like to get her back to the track and racing well next Saturday to warrant going north,” Dwyer said.

“But at her best she’s certainly worth taking up there.”
