Full Of Spirit Late Acceptor For 2012 Australian Oaks

April 17th, 2012

Full Of Spirit is set to compete in the 2012 Australian Oaks at Royal Randwick Racecourse this Saturday April 21, 2012.

The three-year-old filly won the Group 3 Adrian Knox Stakes at Randwick last weekend, which encouraged her trainer Roger James to consider a 2012 Australian Oaks run.

The connections of the Flying Spur filly are expected to pay the $15,400 late entrance fee into the 2012 Australian Oaks after she won $75,000 in her latest start.

“We’ll have another look at her tomorrow and discuss what we are going to do,” James said yesterday.

”There is every chance we might pay a late nomination for the Oaks.

”She is good, a big, tough type, and if I’ve ever trained one to handle backing up it will be her.

”Nothing phases her. It is always a worry going to the trip (2400m) for the first time but against her own age and sex there is every chance she will get there.

”She is out of a three-quarter sister to Champagne, she is bred to run the trip.”

Full Of Spirit has won three of her nine race starts and has earned more than $100,000 in prize money.

James has also decided to rest Silent Achiever after her sixth placing in the Group 1 Australian Derby last start.

Silent Achiever will now go to the spelling paddock instead of taking on the fillies in the 2012 Australian Oaks.

”She is well but I think she is trying to tell us she has had enough,” James said.
