Desert Gold aim for Dijon Bleu

4 Jan 2018

Quality Central Districts’-trained three-year-old Dijon Bleu is set to tackle the Gr.3 Wellfield Desert Gold Stakes (1600m) at Trentham later this month.

The multiple stakes winning daughter of Burgundy, who hasn’t finished further back than third in her six appearances this season, has returned from a short spell after her last-start runner-up performance in the Gr.3 Eulogy Stakes (1550m).

“We put her in the paddock for a couple of weeks after the Eulogy,” trainer Lisa Latta said.

“She has just come back in on Sunday and she is nice and bright and will head to the Desert Gold. She is going well, we have been giving her little freshen-ups after each big race and she seems to be doing well from that.” - NZ Racing Desk
