Away Game adds further lustre to TAB Classic (Sangster Stakes)

A cracking renewal of the Group 1 TAB Classic (Sangster Stakes) at Morphettville is looming on May 2 following news star 2YO Away Game is targeting the 1200m classic.

Away Game – winner of $2.7 million already – scored a decisive win in the Group 2 Percy Sykes Stakes at Randwick last Saturday, adding to her Magic Millions victory in Queensland, and her placings in both the Blue Diamond (at Caulfield) and the Golden Slipper (at Rosehill).

Co-trainer Ciaron Maher told today that Away Game was “the right horse” to take on the older fillies and mares in the prestigious event.

“She’s had a great campaign. She’s had her runs really well spaced and she bounced through her run the other day,” Maher said to

“She’s had a week in the paddock. She’ll head back here (Melbourne) before we go to Adelaide.

“She’s Group 1 placed in the best two-year-old race and with the weight allowance that you get, especially for a filly, it looks a good race.’’ reported that Dean Holland will ride Away Game, which will carry just 47kg in the race.

The 2YO’s presence adds further glamour to the event. McEvoy stable superstar Sunlight has already been locked in, while a long list of other talented fillies – including David Pfieffer’s I Am Exicted – are heading towards the race. Nominations close on Tuesday.
