Nigel Blackiston is looking ahead to the spring with a smile believing he’s got a potential Myer Classic winner on his hands with You’re So Good.

You're So Good

As a three-year-old the Savabeel filly enjoyed a lovely start to her career with two wins and three minor placings from her six summer – autumn campaign runs.

A winner on debut at Moonee Valley in mid-December, You’re So Good would go on to be competitive in a number of big autumn races.

One such performance was her devastatingly close second to Alzora in the Group 3 The Vanity (1400m) at Flemington in February when nudged out of the black type victory by a mere nose.

Undoubtedly You’re So Good’s biggest run to date was her second to Ferlax when beaten just a half length in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) up against the boys in Melbourne on March 2.

She backed up from there to post her second career win retaining her undefeated record at Moonee Valley when breaking her black type maiden in the Listed Alexandra Stakes (1600m).

You’re So Good hasn’t raced since she made her interstate debut at Rosehill on Golden Slipper Day in early April where she finished a disappointing eighth to Norzita in the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m).

There were excuses for her that day however including racing the other way, running on her first Slow-rated track and stepping up to 2000m for the first time.

“She didn’t handle the heavy going,” Blackiston said.

“She missed the kick, pushed forward, over raced and did so many things wrong.

“It was just one of those races that you put a line through and start again.”

Blackiston is confident then You’re So Good can return to her earlier good form when she returns later in the year.

He will also keep her to the mile this time in after her Vinery Stud Stakes disappointment naming the $500,000 Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) at Flemington on Emirates Stakes Day, Saturday November 2, on the first day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival as her grand final goal for the season.

You’re So Good retuned to Blackiston recently and is now back in work heading towards the first run of her Myer Classic preparation.

“She’s been back in our stable for about four weeks now and doing a bit of evens at the moment,” he said.

“She’s come back in great order after a nice six week break and hopefully we’ll be kicking her campaign off in the Cockram Stakes at Caulfield.

“Then we’ll go to the Let’s Elope Stakes with her ultimate aim the Myer Classic.”

The $150,000 Group 3 W.W. Cockram Stakes (1200m) takes place at Caulfield on August 17 while the $220,000 Group 2 Let’s Elope Stakes (1400m) runs at Flemington on September 7, 2013.

If successful in the Myer Classic You’re So Good would be handing Blackiston with his third Group 1 trophy adding to those achieved with Littorio in the 2008 Turnbull Stakes and The BMW.

    Transit TV was one of those ¡°let¡¯s talk about it for with endless useless meetings and discussions about it at taxpayer expense for decades¡± which is what people wanted back in the 1980s, and just when they got finally to do it by the 2000s, the technology has moved to where people started having their own smartphones and entertainment devices.

    Hello, I¡¯m new here (looking forward to buying your first book some time next month, and omg do you have reasonable prices on the zafus in you site shop), and to all these things (zen and its community) in general, but I think that may be the right stance for this. Too many details that are irrelevant to the correct response. If life and limb are not at risk, I say that all conflicts should eventually be resolved with kind words. However, we are humans and are not always capable. At bare minimum, it usually takes time to cool off enough to seek reconciliation. Sometimes we never get to that point. What¡¯s important to remember is that you can not blame your enemies for a lack of reconciliation. There is almost always some set of truthful words that could reconcile the deepest conflicts. We must admit to ourselves that regardless of their failings we have either failed to find those words or held too much pride to use them. This is even more difficult in many cases than simply finding and using them. Everyone has their reasons for their behaviors, not all of them logical or moral. One must try to empathize with the failings of others, even when their failings are directed aggressively at our own person. We are best at doing this if we try to understand their motives, but if we can¡¯t understand, we must acknowledge our own ignorance and give them the psychological benefit of the doubt. We may not always be capable of this response (I rarely am), but I believe it to be the correct one. In this case, I find it easier as an observer to keep a clear head by not reading the articles in the first place, but I will say that in the case of the admin, if I ran a site and gave people I knew the ability to post articles on it, I would let them post whatever they wanted as long as I found their postings to be honest. It¡¯s important to let contributors have their freedom. I¡¯m going to stay out of further specifics (as I probably should have there) as I am not qualified to speak on them and feel it muddys the basic issues involved. I only wish I was capable of what feels like such lucidity when I wasn¡¯t half asleep. Looking forward to finally getting your book(s) when I¡¯m less broke, D351.

    I had a dream that I went into a room, looked at the back of my body in a mirror and saw that I had a black horse tail. It was long and pretty, but I wanted to cut it. As soon as I was about to leave the room, to grab some scissors, I looked up and saw that there was a strange man watching me from the vent and in my dream i became more concerned with sternly telling off the man who was watching me. I woke up feeling quite confused – thoughts?

    I am not an Alaska native, nor do I live in Alaska. I’m from Wisconsin, but Alaska holds a special place for me – Denali National Park in particular. Now, while I want for more to do than to speak out here, or donate, I will say this. The science is against this. The destruction of the King Salmon runs would be immense and drastic. It would destroy a not insignificant portion of some of the most beautiful country on Earth. The economics are against it – job creation, while certainly a plus, is extremely temporary. Our own Governor Walker wishes to allow mining near the Bad River in Wisconsin, citing job creation as a significant motive. Jobs like this are temporary – the mine will die, and the dam, yesterday’s technology, will bring ruin to precious biodiversity, and is already obsolete. There are other, better ways. The dam must not be built.
