Oaks for Arden’s Choice

THE TIME-HONOURED New Zealand Oaks at Addington this weekend is the next target for Panspacificflight filly Arden’s Choice, who finished a creditable fourth in the Group I Nevele R Fillies Final on the same track on Saturday.

As expected, the All Stars Stable dominated the three-year-old fillies’ feature with Dream About Me winning from Golden Goddess and Piccadilly Princess in the national record time of 2:18.1 for the 1950 metres.

Arden’s Choice was drawn perfectly behind the hot favourite Golden Goddess, who used her gate speed to lead early before handing up to Dream About Me. That pushed Arden’s Choice back to three back on the fence and she lost little ground on the hotpots in a last 800 metres run in 55.9 with a final quarter in 26.6.
