Power Princess has been one of the most consistent performers in Perth in the past two years and will get the opportunity to compete against some of the best sprinters in Australia during the 2014 Melbourne Festival Of Racing.

Power Princess performed well during the 2013 Perth Summer Racing Carnival, finishing second in the Group 3 Prince Of Wales Stakes (1200m), sixth in the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes (1200m) and third in the Group 3 Scahill Stakes (1400m), and did enough to convince trainer Simon Miller that she was worthy of a trip to Melbourne.

The seven-year-old has been sent to the spelling paddock but Miller told Racing Victoria that she will only have a brief break before returning to begin preparations for the Group 2 Australia Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on January 25.

“The Australia Stakes will be a fork in the road,” Miller said.

“Depending on how she goes, she can either then go to the Orr Stakes or the Group 3 Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes against her own sex.

“The plan at the moment is to give her a couple of weeks in the paddock and then I’ll bring her back into work.”

Power Princess made her racing debut in 2009 and worked her way through the grades before breaking through for her maiden black type victory in the Listed Jungle Mist Classic (1200m) during the 2010 Perth Summer Racing Carnival.

She took out the Listed Bolton Sprint (1200m) the following autumn and raced competitively at Group level; finishing second behind Grand Nirvana in the Group 3 Roma Cup (1200m) and fourth in the Group 3 Prince Of Wales Stakes (1200m).

The Marwina mare took out the Listed Miss Andretti Handicap (1200m) in March of 2010 and was taken to Adelaide, where she finished fifth in the Group 3 Irwin Stakes (1100m) and made her Group 1 debut with a third place finish behind equine superstar Black Caviar in the Group 1 Robert Sangster Classic (1200m).

After a stint in the spelling paddock, Power Princes recorded her maiden win at Group level with a victory in the Prince Of Wales Stakes and produced one of the best runs of her career to finish a narrow third behind Barakey in the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes before ending her campaign with another impressive win in the Scahill Stakes.

Power Princess is expected to be joined in Melbourne by stablemate Miss Rose De Lago who won the Group 3 Western Australian Champion Fillies Stakes (1600m) before finishing second behind subsequent Kingston Town Classic winner Ihtsahymn in the Group 2 Western Australian Guineas (1600m).
