Group 1 winning mare Single Gaze and jockey Kathy O’Hara will re-unite for the first time on race day in the Group 2 $200,000 Ranvet Millie Fox Stakes (1300m) at Rosehill on Saturday after parting company in an horrific fall in the 2016 Australian Oaks.

The Nick Olive trained Single Gaze was sent into the Group 1 $1m James Boag’s Premium Australian Oaks (2400m) at Randwick during last year’s ‘The Championships’ after winning the Group 1 $500,000 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill at her previous start but the Not A Single Doubt filly clipped heels on the home turn.

Single Gaze crashed heavily to the turf and while Olive said that Single Gaze escaped with minor injuries, O’Hara found herself in hospital with a punctured a lung and had to undergo surgery on her sternoclavicular joint.

O’Hara was out of the saddle for three months and Olive decided to abandon a Spring campaign for Single Haze after the mare failed to please him in the stable.

“All the vet tests were clear but I wasn’t 100 per cent happy with her,” Olive AAP.

“There was nothing obvious and we could have gone on but I think it was the right decision to miss the spring.”

Olive is now happy with Single Gaze’s condition as she prepares for the 2017 Autumn Carnival but he doesn’t expect her to figure in the major end of the prizemoney over the 1300m first up even though she has performed well in two 900m barrier trials in Canberra with O’Hara in the saddle for a win on January 20 and a second to Group 1 sprinter Fell Swoop on February 3.

“She looks fantastic now and I couldn’t be happier with her,” Olive said.

“She hasn’t taken a backward step and her trials have been good.

“Kathy rode her and she said she had improved as well so I’m looking forward to Saturday.”

“As a Group One winner she has that weight penalty and has to carry 58 (kg).”

Olive will wait until after the running of the Millie Fox Stakes to map out a plan for the rest of the Autumn Carnival but as this stage he is thinking the Group 1 $600,000 Coolmore Classic (1500m) at Rosehill on March 11 and possibly the Group 1 $3m The Star Doncaster Mile (1600m) at Randwick on April 1 could be in the pipeline.

Single Gaze has drawn the inside barrier in the thirteen horse Millie Fox Stakes field and is listed as a $12 chance with Ladbrokes.com.au.

The David Pfieffer trained Denmagic at $5.50 heads a very open betting race in front of Euro Angel at $6, Artistry at $7.50 and In Her Time, Private Secretary and Daysee Doom at $8.50.

    makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often.
    Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Exceptional work!

    I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s
    equally educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you
    have hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue
    that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something regarding this.

    that cover the same topics talked about here? I’d really like to be a part
    of community where I can get advice from other knowledgeable individuals that share
    the same interest. If you have any recommendations,
    please let me know. Thanks!

  23. Lelio Vieira Carneiro

    Hello, Neat post. There’s a problem along with your site in internet explorer, could check
    this? IE still is the marketplace leader and a good portion of other folks will pass over your fantastic writing because of this problem.

  24. website whenever

    Nice blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog shine.
    Please let me know where you got your design. Appreciate it

  25. Luiz Gastao Bittencourt da Silva

    It’s really very difficult in this busy life to listen news on Television, so I simply use world wide web for that
    reason, and take the hottest news.

  26. Umanizzare presidios

    I’ve been browsing online more than 4 hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers
    made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

  30. Itamar Serpa Fernandes

    each time i used to read smaller content that as well clear their motive, and that is also happening with this piece of
    writing which I am reading here.

  31. Grupo Serval presidios

    Helpful information. Fortunate me I discovered your web site unintentionally,
    and I am stunned why this coincidence didn’t happened earlier!
    I bookmarked it.

  32. Luiz Fernando Monteiro Bittencourt

    This is the right blog for anyone who would like to find out about
    this topic. You understand so much its almost hard to
    argue with you (not that I actually would want to…HaHa).

    for ages. Great stuff, just excellent!

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

    might not be a taboo subject but usually people do not talk about such issues.
    To the next! Kind regards!!
