Eulogy next target for star Burgundy filly

3 Dec 2017

Group One performer Dijon Bleu will be sticking closer to home during the summer.

The Burgundy filly is back in work with Awapuni trainer Lisa Latta following a brief break after her gallant effort to finish runner-up behind Hasahalo in the New Zealand 1000 Guineas (1600m) at Riccarton.

“She is quite a highly-strung filly, one of those that’s best doing a bit of work,” Latta said.

Dijon Bleu’s Guineas run followed victories in the Gr.3 Gold Trail Stakes (1400m) and at Listed level in the Soliloquy Stakes (1400m) and the O’Leary’s Fillies’ Classic (1200m).

“She’ll go to the Eulogy Stakes at Awapuni and then the Desert Gold Stakes,” Latta said.

Dijon Bleu also holds a nomination for the Gr.1 Grant Plumbing Levin Classic (1600m) at Trentham on January 13. - NZ Racing Desk
