11/03/02 Interstate Plans for Shelbourne Lass
0311shelbournelass.jpg (9850 bytes)Nigel Blackiston is eyeing interstate riches with his bonny mare Shelbourne Lass after she scored an emphatic win in today's $126,000 Tooheys New Plate (Group 3) over 1400 metres at Flemington.

A campaign in Brisbane or Adelaide, where she won her first Group race last year, is on the card after today's Group triumph.

Among the races which could be on Shelbourne Lass' agenda is the Stradbroke Handicap or Doomben Cup in Brisbane.

Blackiston said he was relieved the mare had returned to her best form after what was a frustrating last preparation.

"Nothing went right last spring. Something just kept going wrong so we gave a big long spell."

"Now she has come back bigger and stronger and much more mature which is great," Blackiston added.

In today's race champion Melbourne jockey Damien Oliver had the mare in a lovely position just off the pace before making a run shortly after the eventual runner-up Ramano's Star had hit the front for a fleeting moment at the 250 metre mark.

Spurn, which covered extra ground early from the outside barrier, again finished well, making up good late ground to finish third, a half neck from the runner-up.

PICS - Quentin Lang.
