Seven-year-old mare Lady Lynette has won the Group 2 Blazer Stakes at Flemington on Turnbul Stakes Day.
The 2011 Blazer Stakes started with an almost capacity field of 15 top quality mares for the 1400m race worth $200,000 in prize money.
Lady Lynette, trained by David & Scott Brunton and ridden by Nicholas Hall, jumped from barrier 14 and scored a quality win by 1.3 lengths from Booklet with Dysphonia finishing third.
Lady Lynette has been nominated next for the Listed Ladies Day Vase at Caulfield on Thousand Guineas Day, 12 October 2011, and could also run in the Group 3 Trojan Hand Tools Stakes (formerly the Inglis Mile) at Moonee Valley on Cox Plate Day, 22 October 2011.
Looking towards retirement after the 2011 Spring Carnival, the Group 1 Myer Classic is being targeted as Lady Lynette’s final race. Having started 42 races to date for 13 wins, including 7 victories in stakes level races, and 15 placings, Lady Lynette has earned over $980,000 in prize money. If she can win the Myer Classic 2011 she will bow out of racing with well over $1million in prize money and add a coveted Group 1 win to her resume as a broodmare.
