11/03/02 Third Straight Breeders for Freedman and Oliver
0311damadenoche.jpg (10797 bytes)Trainer Lee Freedman and jockey Damien Oliver continued their recent domination of the Group Three Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes when Dama De Noche scored a convincing win in this afternoon's edition.

It is the third consecutive win in the race for the duo when the combined for today's three length slaughter.

It is the second consecutive stakes race success for the daughter of the ill fated Snippets after her last start triumph in the listed Waltzing Lily Stakes at this track on February 27.

Freedman said after the race that it was always his plans for the filly to come to the outside of the straight course after drawing barrier eleven.

"It was out intention to come to the grandstand. Whenever there is a strong northerly wind it's (the outside) certainly the place to be," Freedman said.

"The inside horses were in front early in the race but I felt when they got to the grandstands it would change," he added.

Freedman said after the race that Dama De Noche "could" head to Sydney "depending on how she pulls up after today."

"There really isn't anything left down here (Melbourne) for her, so Sydney is an option," Freedman said.

Meanwhile, Freedman said that Golden Slipper aspirations for recent Inglis Classic runner-up Pillaging would go on the line in a trial in Melbourne tomorrow.

"At this stage I'm leaning toward the Sires'," Freedman said when referring to Group One Sires' Produce Stakes to be run at Flemington next Saturday.

Dubai Ice, the Danehill daughter of Group One winner Skating, impressed her trainer Tony McEvoy with her second placing on debut.

"She went super," an enthusiatic McEvoy reported. "She just seemed as though she needed something to be over with her at the finish to keep her swtiched on to the finish."

"It was like she was a cork in the ocean," McEvoy added.

In the run to the line Dama De Noche held a three length break over Dubai Ice, who was the first horse home on the inside of the track, while Centella was a short head away in third back on the outside of the track.

PICS - Quentin Lang.
