Racing focus shifts to Brisbane on Saturday for the Doomben Cup meeting and, with it, a number of black type chances for Eliza Park stallions, including Delago Brom (Danaupair Starlet, The Roses-G3) and Clangalang (Mistaken Grace, The Roses-G3).
One that could cap off a big week for Statue of Liberty however, is the very impressive 2YO, Broadway Harmony (below), who takes on the Group Two Champagne Classic and, at this stage, is rated a $7.50 shot.
The Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock syndicated, Broadway Harmony, comes fresh from a win in the Dequetteville Stakes-LR at Morphettville on 2 May and won a trial at Doomben on Tuesday.
The Statue of Liberty juveniles are really starting to emerge from the pack and he came close to adding another winner to his portfolio on Wednesday when the Gai Waterhouse trained Someday Somehow was beaten a whisker on a heavy Canterbury surface.
This is another filly with her fair share of ability, leaving the third horse some six lengths in the wake.
Someday Somehow is out of the Foxhound mare, Mi Piachi and boasts some interesting breeding given that Foxhound is a half brother to Statue of Liberty’s dam, Charming Lassie.
The rather cleverly named, Applebottom (by Statue of Liberty out of Fasliyev mare Sundare!) squared the ledger however with a fighting win over 900m at Mt Gambier yesterday (20 May).
Trained by Peter Stennett, Applebottom was having only her third outing at Mt Gambier and she hails from the family of Golden Slipper/Oaks winner Bounding Away.
