The 2011 Thousand Guineas Anticipates Glissade’s Arrival

August 11th, 2011

While the most highly-anticipated runner at Caulfield this Saturday will be Peter Snowden’s Sepoy, Darley’s best trainer is also preparing to rustle up a number of other top chances including the 2011 Thousand Guineas racer, Glissade in the $100,000 Listed Quezette Stakes. She is back this Saturday as one of the 13 hopeful fillies accepted for the 2011 Quezette Stakes, Glissade is due to jump from barrier four with Kerrin McEvoy coming along for the ride. “She trialled really well last week and I’m really happy with her,” Snowden said. “Her work’s been quite sharp.” Snowden said that Glissade had the potential to develop into a Group One horse this preparation and named the $500,000 Group 1 Thousand Guineas at Caulfield on Wednesday October 12 as her goal this spring.
