Everage hoping for a Classic start

Jan 18, 2013

A promising filly educated at our Cranbourne stables and part-owned by Michael Kent is entered to make her debut in Sydney on Saturday - all we need is a bit of luck at getting a run!

First emergency in the $250,000 Inglis Classic, Everage caught the eye at last year's Classic Sale - both Michael and long time friend Craig Carmody liking what they saw.

"We were at the sale together looking at yearlings," Carmody recalled, "this fily came up and we both liked her."

"She captured our attention and went for only $20,000 so we thought we'd have some fun."

"We primarily bought her thinking she would be perfect for this race and here we are, we have nearly got there, we just need to get a start in the field."

An encouraging third in a Randwick trial in mid-December, the cleverly named Everage (out of Quipster) has impressed in her work so far.

"She has trialled well and has shown us a bit of ability," said Carmody.

"It is a very big ask, though, having her first start in a race of this quality. But you only get one chance with these restricted races for sales graduates."

"If she happens to get in and gets some luck in running, I think she will run a good race."

A daughter of the stakes winning juvenile Zizou out of a half sister to a horse our stable had a lot of success with - the ten times winner Red Buttons - Everage boasts a fascinating pedigree being closely line-bred to both Rory's Jester and the outstanding broodmare Easy Date.
