The NZ-bred Aloisia upstaged some highly rated fillies with an emphatic win in the G1 Thousand Guineas at Caulfield and took another step when she outclassed her male rivals at Moonee Valley on Saturday in the G2 Drummond Golf Vase by three and a half lengths.

The Aaron Pucell-trained Aloisia Horseform is now an odds on favourite for the G1 VRC Oaks (2500m) at Flemington on November 9.


The Azamour filly was bred by Matamata couple Jason and Kelly Price and the latter’s brother Michael Hall. When she was passed in for $NZ60,000 at the 2016 NZB Karaka Sale, they retained her to race themselves.

Jason Price trained her for two New Zealand starts for a fifth and a second before she was sold to an Australian syndicate headed by Terry Henderson’s OTI Racing

Purcell stepped in to take over as Aloisia’s caretaker trainer after her former trainer Ciaron Maher was suspended last month.

Aloisia (Azamour x Queen Boudicca by Perfectly Ready) has now won three times with two seconds from seven starts for $612,865 prize money.

Her late sire Azamour shuttled from Gilltown Stud in Ireland to New Zealand in 2013. Azamour, who died in April, has left 37 stakes winners including Aloisia, Irish Oaks winner Covert Love, Dubai Sheema Classic winner Dolniya and Prix de Diane winner Valyra.

Aloisia is one of two winners out of the G2 placed Queen Boudicca while her second dam Qwikchik (Grosvenor) is a placed half-sister to Listed winner Canned Heat (Al Akbar) and Energetic Dancer (Dance Floor), the dam of Listed winner Savvy Dancer (Savabeel).

Queen Boudicca has a 2YO Wyetta (Keeper) racing in NZ, a yearling colt by Swiss Ace and colt foal by Dalghar.

Godolphin filly Banish landed the G2 Fillies Classic at Moonee Valley on Saturday to become the 69th individual stakes winner by her sir Lonhro.

Banish Horseform is likely to be spelled despite her third victory this campaign.

Banish (Lonhro x Meidung by Bernardini) has won four of her eight starts with three placings.

She is the first foal out of the Listed winner Meidung (Bernardini) while her second dam Amish (Canny Lad) is a half sister to dual G2 winner Pinwheel.

Meidung died in 2015 after she produced an unraced two-year-old colt by Medaglia d’Oro.

R10 MOONEE VALLEY 28 October 2017
Moonee Valley Vase 3 , 2040m
Race Synopsis: The Thousand Guineas (Gr 1, 1600m) winner Aloisia claimed favouritism for the upcoming VRC Oaks (Gr 1, 2500m) with a dominant performance here. She was quickly away and then travelled well in third place on the rails, behind a solid pace. She improved along the inner from the 600m, dashed clear shortly after turning for home and then raced away to score easily in a most impressive performance. The Norman Robinson Stakes (Gr 3, 2000m) winner Cliff’s Edge soon crossed from his outside barrier (ten) to lead. He then ran along at a solid pace before being overtaken on turning for home. He then fought on well after his early efforts for (3.5 lengths) second. Salsamor tracked the leader (Cliff’s Edge) and held on to take the minor placing, some nine lengths from the winner.
