The Champagne Stakes appeared on the horizon for Veuvelicious after a five-length win at Sandown on Saturday.
Veuvelicious went into the Sensational Springvale Plate as a maiden but emerged as a potential Group One contender for trainer Brent Stanley after leading throughout.
Stanley said he would assess the filly’s recovery before deciding to set her for the $400,000 Champagne Stakes at Randwick on April 26 or spell her in readiness for a three-year-old staying campaign.
“Sydney’s on the board so we’ll have a look at that,” Stanley said.
“In six months time over a bit more ground, she’s going to be a serious animal.”
Stanley paid $30,000 for Veuvelicious but the filly gave the young trainer his first Saturday metropolitan win.
Veuvelicious ($7.50) continued a recent run of wins on two-year-olds for jockey Stephen Baster who posted his fourth victory on a juvenile during the past two weeks.
Baster said the Northern Meteor filly belied her age with her racing manners.
“If someone said she was a three-year-old I would have believed them,” he said.
Singularity ($11) finished second ahead of Top Sight ($5) in a bunched finish while the $3.80 favourite Lassitude failed to beat a runner home.
Lassitude’s jockey Steven Arnold told stewards the slow pace did not suit his mount.
