Grahame Begg’s charge, Passive Aggressive, is gearing up to take on the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville this Saturday, marking a significant return to the track after her initial retirement last year, which followed her eighth-place finish in the 2023 renewal of the same race.

Despite the retirement announcement, owner Jonathan Munz brought her back to Begg after she failed to conceive to I Am Invincible.

The decision proved fruitful, with the five-year-old daughter of Fastnet Rock triumphing first-up in the Group 2 Challenge Stakes (1000m) before securing a respectable sixth place in The Galaxy (1100m) in her last outing.

Reflecting on her recent performance, Begg shared insights with, stating, “She didn’t have a lot of luck in the Galaxy. It was a quick turnaround of only a fortnight from the Challenge, and if it wasn’t a Group 1 she wouldn’t have been running.”

He continued, “She had a positive experience though as she ran well. She only got beaten just over two lengths and she had a wide passage throughout.”

Expressing his satisfaction with her progress, Begg mentioned, “I’m very happy with her. She had a nice tick over jump-out at Cranbourne last week, which she won.

“She seems to be going very well but it’s going to be a very strong edition with the likes of Estriella and Benedetta in the race. It’s a very strong race.”
