Sydney next for in-form Epingle

Melbourne trainer Mick Kent is looking toward Sydney with Epingle following her win in yesterday’s Gr 3 Launceston Cup. The WS-bred and sold daughter of Pins not only banked $A135,000 for her victory, but also collected a further $A100,000 for previously winning the Hobart Cup.

“The Epona Stakes, the Chairman’s Stakes and the Sydney Cup is probably what we’ll do,” Kent said. “The BMW, she’s still it, is an obvious target and if it happens to rain, it would be a bonus.”

Epingle was purchased out of WS’s 2009 Australian Easter Yearling Sale draft for $180,000 by Dermot Farrington Bloodstock. The six-year-old is out of the stakes-winning Zabeel mare Etoile du Nord, who is also the dam of the recent Gr 2 Avondale Cup placegetter Etoile Filante (Pins).
