A gallant third placing in last Saturday's
Gr.2 Guy Walter Stakes (1400m) has earned talented Cambridge mare Francaletta (High Chaparral x Snow Peak) a
shot at the Gr.1 Coolmore Classic (1500m).
Trainer Murray Baker said Francaletta had
come through the race in excellent order and she was pressing on to Saturday
week's Rosehill fillies and mares’ feature.
“She's really improved so she'll run next
week in the Coolmore.”
Bred by Raffles Dancers, Francaletta was sold from Trelawney Stud's 2014 Inglis Easter draft.
She was purchased for $65,000 by bloodstock agent Bruce Perry and is raced by Lib
The High Chaparral five-year-old has won six of her 10 starts up to
Group Three level in New Zealand and has now been Group Two-placed on both
sides of the Tasman.
