Anevay’s last-start failure in the Gr. 2 Royal Stakes can be forgotten.
The Ocean Park filly earned a crack at the feature after an impressive maiden mile win and trainer Glenn Old had been expecting a top run at Ellerslie on New Year’s Day.
“The track went from a Good3 to a Slow7 and she was never comfortable,” the Matamata horseman said. “I had been very confident of her running in the money on a Good3.
“She’s pulled up well and she’ll run over 1900 metres at Rotorua next Wednesday. If she goes well, then we’ll look at the Sir Tristram Classic or maybe the Oaks Prelude at New Plymouth.”
Trelawney Stud will offer Anevay’s yearling half-brother (Lot 918) by Reliable Man during the Book 2 Sale at Karaka next month.
