Kiwi filly Eleonora produced a great Crown Oaks trial with a stylish win in the Group 3 $150,000 New Zealand Bloodstock Ethereal Stakes (2000m) at Caulfield today.

Eleonora is the granddaughter of Ethereal, the winner of the 2001 Caulfield and Melbourne Cups and it is a fitting result for the Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman trained filly to win the race named after her grand dam.

The Makfi filly was coming off a very unlucky last start eleventh in the Group 2 $200,000 Edward Manifold Stakes (1600m) at Flemington on October 2 but a brilliant ride from Damien Oliver today saw Eleonora ($7) weave through the field to record a comfortable one and a quarter lengths win over the out of luck Tiamo Grace ($9) with Savvan ($8.50) in third spot.

The $3.60 favourite Sebring Dream was always back near the tail of the field in the early and middle stages but after making a long sweeping run faded in the straight to finish fifth.

Co-trainer Andrew Forsman said the plan had always been for Eleonora to head to the Group 1 $1m Crown Oaks (2500m) at Flemington on November 3 and she will now line up as one of the favourites.

“It just panned out a treat,” Forsman said.

“She got a dream run through and all the bad luck she had last time she made up for it today.”

“That is why we brought her here (to run in Crown Oaks) and if we picked up enough money to get into the race we knew she would be hard to beat.”

“To win an Ethereal Stakes, her grand dam is Ethereal, it is a very special moment.”

Runner up Tiamo Grace put up a terrific performance to hit the line strongly after running into plenty of trouble in the early stages of the straight.

    I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made
    good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to
    my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!

    LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

    It’s really very difficult in this full of activity life to
    listen news on Television, therefore I just use internet
    for that purpose, and obtain the newest information.
