Co-trainer Tom Dabernig has confirmed that Miss Promiscuity is likely to have her next race start in the 2015 Bletchingly Stakes after she scored an upset victory over Lord Of The Sky in the Sir John Monash Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday.
Lord Of The Sky started the Sir John Monash Stakes as a dominant favourite, but he never looked like a winning chance in the Group 3 event and Miss Promiscuity showed an impressive turn-of-foot in the last 100 metres to record a comfortable victory from Angels Beach and Wild Rain.
Jockey Dwayne Dunn admitted that he did not plan on settling Miss Promiscuity as close to the speed as he did in the Sir John Monash Stakes, but said he was forced to change his plan due to the slow start of Lord Of The Sky.
“We were a bit surprised,” Dunn said after the race.
“Everyone anticipated Lord Of The Sky to go forward and we were going to sit just off him but when he missed the start we were sort of just left there.
“I expected him (Lord Of The Sky) to come charging but he never did.
“She (Miss Promiscuity) found the right part of the track and really gave me a super kick.”
The breeding barn is now considered an option for Miss Promiscuity, but Dabernig is hopeful that the four-year-old will remain in work for a 2015 Spring Racing Carnival campaign and he told RSN she will contest the Group 3 Bletchingly Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on July 25 before a decision is made about her racing future.
“Certainly from our point of view we’d like to race her on, there’s no reason to say that she would need to go to stud,” Dabernig told Racing.com’s Correct Weight.
“I know now that she’s a Group winner it would probably by tempting for Rob but I think there’s some lovely races for her through the spring.
“Her next likely start is probably the Bletchingly at Caulfield in three weeks and then there are some really nice races in the early spring for her if she’s still going well enough.”
Miss Promiscuity has now recorded five wins from her 14 race starts and has accumulated almost $300,000 in prizemoney for owner Robert Crabtree.
Robbie Laing said that Lord Of The Sky had excuses for his poor effort in the Sir John Monash Stakes and the four-year-old is likely to press on to the Bletchingly Stakes for another clash with Miss Promiscuity.
