06/03/02 Gatt to Chase Suzy to Sydney
0306pgatt.jpg (7898 bytes)Adelaide jockey Paul Gatt, who rode Straight Ace to a third placing in the Group One Oakleign Plate recently, will fly to Sydney on Saturday to partner the classy mare Suzy Grey in the Group One Coolmore Classic.

A last start winner of the Group Two Swettenham Stud Stakes in Adelaide, Suzy Grey is on the hunt for further black type as well as a firm surface in Sydney.

Trainer Alan Bailey had the filly nominated in both Sydney and Melbourne on the weekend but is looking toward the more northern centre and a clash with the champion Sunline.

"She deserves her chance at Group One level and I'm just hoping the weather stays okay and the track remains in good shape," Bailey said on Sport 927 this morning.

Gatt, who is currently second on the Adelaide premiership behind Travis Creek, will be giving up a big book of rides in his home state as he hunts the Coolmore Classic on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Sunline is in great shape according to co-trainer Steve McKee as she prepares for the 1500 metre event.

"She travelled over and is in great shape. Everything is looking good for Saturday," McKee said of the champion mare.
