09/08/02 Star Duo to Gallop at Morphettville
r7elegantfashion.jpg (11345 bytes)Two stakes winners from the Tony McEvoy stable will take part in an exhibition gallop at the Morphettville meeting in Adelaide tomorrow.

Moonee Valley Oaks winner and Australian Oaks runner-up Elegant Fashion will join unbeaten stakes winning stablemate Pompous as they stride out in between races.

Elegant Fashion rose from an unknown to one of the country's best last preparation and McEvoy is hopeful she will take the next step.

"She has to take the next step against some of the country's best now," McEvoy said. "But there's no reason she shouldn't be able to. I'm optimistic!"

McEvoy reported the now four-year-old mare was going "super," and she would head on a traditional Cups lead up during the early spring.

"She'll kick off in the Liston (Stakes) and the ultimate aim would be the Caulfield Cup," Lindsay Park's head trainer said.

The other stablemate who will gallop tomorrow is the impressive debut stakes winner Pompous.

By the Lindsay Park based stallion Jeune, Pompous has not raced for about 18 months after injury problems.

"He had major pedal bone problems after his win," McEvoy reported.

McEvoy is hopeful Pompous can make a successful return to the track after his leg problems.

"The next two weeks will be the key," he said. "He's above himself and after the gallop he'll have a couple of trials before we make a decision."

Meanwhile, McEvoy reported the international star North Boy would go straight into the Group One Manikato Stakes next month without a run.

"He's going very good as well and the Manikato will be his first run," McEvoy said. "Hopefully we can get a good spring out of him."

Tomorrow is shaping as a great opportunity for locals to Adelaide to see some high class horse flesh.

As well as both Elegant Fashion and Pompous in exhibitions gallops, the exciting Great Glen steps out in the day's feature.

And to top of a great day Gold Guru's half sister by the champion Danehill, Gucci Guru, will be gunning for her first win and a springboard to feature events in Melbourne in the coming months.

PICS - Quentin Lang.
