30/03/02 Princesa Aims for Goodwood after Caulfield Win
Regally bred mare Princesa will be aimed toward South Australia’s premier sprinting race after a triumphant return to the racetrack at Caulfield today.

Now in the stables of Greg Eurell, the daughter of Danehill is enjoying her new surroundings which was the main reason behind the move from the Lindsay Park stables, where she started her career.

"We got her as her owners through she would be better suited in a more country type atmosphere and being away from the city surroundings," Eurell said moments after her soft first up win.

Eurell has picked out the Group One Goodwood Handicap at Morphettville on Adelaide Cup Day as the mare’s major mission this month.

"That’s a bit of a way down the track but we’d like to think she would be suited in a race like that and prove competitive," he added. "But there are a few more stones to step just yet."

The Goodwood Handicap looks a great option for Princesa. If she managed to win a Group One race her value as a broodmare would skyrocket from it’s already impressive stature. The strong built daughter of Danehill is from the Group One winning mare Kapchat. Her half brother by Octagonal was set to make his debut at Gawler last Sunday for Tony McEvoy but was withdrawn after drawing a poor barrier on the tight track.

In today’s race Princesa, who interestingly was Tony McEvoy’s first winner after the tragic death of Peter Hayes, jumped on the lead early and was always travelling like a winner.

At the post the sensationally bred mare had a break of a length and a quarter over the second placegetter Yaremiss, while Best Offer was a further one and a half length away in third place.
