Danny O’Brien will test My Pendant at stakes level after the mare staged a last-to-first victory at Caulfield.
Under a cool ride by Damien Oliver, My Pendant was last on the home turn before overpowering her rivals to win Saturday’s Clanbrooke Racing Handicap (1400m).
Sent off the $2.30 favourite, My Pendant scored by a length victory from $101 shot Camelle.
Punters had a good lead into the prospects of My Pendant with Oliver wasting to ride the mare at 54kg.
“Ollie was keen to ride her,” O’Brien said.
“Craig Williams rides this mare as well, but Ollie rode her very well last time and it was hard to take him off.
“Going forward to the spring, I’m sure Craig will get back on her at some stage.”
O’Brien said My Pendant was a galloper that doesn’t like to be bustled early and Oliver had her travelling comfortably.
“That’s five wins and three seconds from nine starts and she’s ready to step into stakes grade now, the Let’s Elope at Flemington in two weeks time,” O’Brien said.
“But she’s got to step to another grade after being on the minimum today.
“You look at the mares in the Cockram today, some of those will be going to the Let’s Elope, so we’ll get a better guide when she gets to Flemington.”
My Pendant races in the silks of co-breeder Waikato Stud who retained a share after selling the daughter of Pins through their 2017 New Zealand Bloodstock Premier draft. -AAP
