After disappointing her coach on her first run at Sandown, Adele Amour bounced back into form with a big win at Caulfield.
Now John Sadler will be looking for a race with some sort of black skin for Sebring’s daughter following her win in the IAM Handicap (1400m) on Saturday.
But first, Sadler is planning to return to Caulfield in two weeks for another 1400m race for three-year-olds at the VOBIS Gold meeting.
Discarded by Alana Kelly, Adele Amour ($8) races to win three-quarters from Blistering ($31) with Sonora ($15) two-thirds away.
Sadler said he was disappointed with Adele Amour’s first performance at Sandown on March 23 as the player finished third with a $2.10 favorite behind Belle Amour, an opponent on Wednesday. seven ended in money.
“She’s not really trained for it, but I still think she can win,” Sadler said.
“I find these Sebring fillings a bit odd, and they can turn it on and off, but I worked with her in a flash on Tuesday morning and her work is outstanding.”
Sadler said after the VOBIS Gold meeting on April 23, he will be traveling to Adelaide with Adele Amour to Adelaide Guineas listed (1600m) in Morphettville on May 14.
“I would love to get some sort of black for Eddie Hirsch,” Sadler said.
“In two weeks she’s going to the VOBIS meeting, there’s a lovely three-year-old race for her and she’s going to have a really good chance.”
Kelly will make her maiden voyage aboard the Adele Amour on Saturday and said the plan is to try to go further forward than the quarterback she’s already occupied.
“With the first blink, she slowed down a little bit,” says Kelly.
“I spoke to John before the race and we were happy to be in the first four, but it didn’t work out that way.
“I was able to keep her on a good rhythm and let her finish like that, which is pretty good.”
