A clever raceday gear change has put two-year-old Starosa on the road to the Group One JJ Atkins

A clever raceday gear change has put two-year-old Starosa on the road to the Group One JJ Atkins.

Starosa ($1.30) made it two wins in a row when she led all the way for an easy win in the Lexus 2YO (1350m) at Doomben on Saturday.

The filly did her early racing in blinkers and was well beaten at her first two starts.

Trainer Tony Gollan removed the blinkers for her run at Doomben last month and she scored a surprise win.

The blinkers remained off the filly’s raceday gear on Saturday and she raced strongly.

Gollan admitted in a normal racing year Starosa would tackle the second tier two-year-old races.

“A race like the Phoenix Stakes at 1500m would have been her mission,” Gollan said.

“But with a reduced winter programme we might as well have a crack at a Group One in the JJ Atkins (on June 6).

“I think she will run a strong mile so the 1400m of this year’s Atkins is no problem.

“Starosa was sent to us as a yearling and she has developed into one of the finds of the season.”

Gollan said he would another race for Starosa on the next three weeks as a lead up to the J J Atkins.

Starosa firmed from $51 to $15 for the JJ Atkins after her win.

It gave apprentice Stephanie Thornton back-to-back wins after she took the previous race on Mount Beauty.
