Smart mare set for Sydney
22 Dec 2017

The connections of the Group-winning mare Francaletta (High Chaparral x Snow Peak) have Australian aspirations for the five-year-old.

The Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman-trained daughter of High Chaparral is currently enjoying a six week break and her next preparation is likely to focus on Sydney.

She was turned out after finishing runner-up in the Gr.2 Auckland Thoroughbred Breeders’ Stakes (1400m), having claimed the Gr.3 Taranaki Breeders’ Stakes (1400m) at her previous appearance.

Raced by Lib Petagna, she has overcome a series of injuries, that at one stage threatened to end her racing career, to win six of her nine starts.

Francaletta was purchased by Bruce Perry for $65,000 from Trelawney Stud's 2014 Inglis Easter draft when consigned on behalf of Raffles Racing. -NZ Racing Desk
