Mary Quant on trial for Gr.1 Oaks bid with Stablemate

The Lance O’sullivan and Andrew Scott stable has Gr.1 Wellfield New Zealand Oaks ambitions for Mary Quant (O’Reilly) and Suffire and tidy performances at Hastings will confirm their participation at Trentham on March 14.

“It’s hard to split them, they are both in good form and condition,” Scott said. “It’s another step up for them both, but they deserve a crack and hopefully then on to Wellington.

“Mary Quant is obviously bred to stay being a daughter of Legs and everything she has done indicates she wants 2000 metres and beyond.

“Suffire is by a son of Zabeel and her last two wins also suggest she is going to run a trip.” – NZ Racing Desk.
