Revolutionary Miss secures valuable black-type with Widden Stakes placing
REVOLUTIONARY MISS became the second of this season’s Triple Crown 2YO’s to secure valuable black-type after storming home to grab second in the Group 3 Widden Stakes at Rosehill on Saturday.
The daughter of Russian Revolution came from well off the pace to finish runner-up to the impressive winner Queen Of The Ball, clocking the fastest 200m on the card in the process.
Revolutionary Miss, who is already a half-sister to a Stakes winner in Equation, will now head down to Melbourne for a crack at the Group 2 Blue Diamond Prelude for fillies, before hopefully securing herself a place in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on February 26.
“She definitely wants 1200m and those 1200m races aren’t coming up for another four weeks (in Sydney),” said Peter Snowden when mulling over Revolutionary Miss’s options.
“Having a run at Caulfield would be a huge advantage to her, and if she was to handle the track and steam home like she did on Saturday, you know the 1200m is not going to be an issue (in the Blue Diamond).
“The only other option is to go on the Slipper path and wait four weeks for the Sweet Embrace Stakes, but she has already had two runs and it’s not the ideal preparation leading into that grand final.”
It is a hugely exciting time for all of Revolutionary Miss’s owners and we look forward to seeing if she can add further black-type to her pedigree page in Saturday week’s Blue Diamond Prelude.
