Calligraphy to stay closer to home

The Ross McCarroll-trained Calligraphy will be looking for redemption when she resumes after her disappointing unplaced performance in the Gr. 3 Manawatu Breeders’ Stakes at Awapuni last Friday.

“I thought her run in the Manawatu Breeders' was poor,” McCarroll said. “I think she travelled badly down there and the track was pretty rough. 

“We’ve given her 10 days off, and then she’s going to Rotorua for the fillies and mares' race (Gr. 3 ISCL Rotorua Stakes over 1400 metres). I’ll try her closer to home in a black-type race.”
