Savanna Amour returns to the scene of multiple group victories when she runs tomorrow in the $500,000 Schillaci Stakes at Caulfield.
The Ontrack Thoroughbreds managed mare has run five times at Caulfield for three group race wins and a third. Her wins on course came in the Group Two Angus Armanasco Stakes and the Group Threes Cockram Stakes and How Now Stakes.
“There’s no doubt that she loves the Caulfield track and that’s been an important factor in planning her spring campaign,” said Ontrack Thoroughbreds Managing Director Grant Morgan.
“She has good form second up and the 1100 metres on a good track should be a perfect assignment for Savanna Amour.”
Savanna Amour will have a new jockey with Michael Walker replacing Ben Melham, due to riding in the Everest in Sydney.
“It’s not really a major concern having a new rider because she’s a mare who has moved between Queensland and Victoria for much of her career and that’s often necessitated a riding change.
“in fact she has raced 19 times and she’s actually had 10 different riders during her career. She’s had seven wins and five different jockeys have won on her so she’s not a difficult mare to ride and the change to Michael Walker won’t be an issue,” said Grant Morgan.
