Fangirl Australia’s Best Middle Distance Horse 2024?

James McDonald: Australia's premier jockey, renowned for his skill, dedication, and numerous victories on the racetrack. He continues to showcase his skills on the big days worldwide.

Randwick host’s Sydney’s first Group 1 races of 2024 on Saturday and Verry Elleegant Stakes with Fangirl firmly at the top of the betting after her emphatic return.

Seven of the 10 runners in the Verry Elleegant Stakes (1600m), formerly known as the Chipping Norton Stakes, are Group 1 winners including the might Fangirl who has put herself up there with a claim to be Australia’s best middle distance horse.

Headlining the $1 million weight-for-age contest is top class mare Fangirl, the winner of the Apollo Stakes two weeks ago. The Chris Waller-trained galloper Fangirl will need to overcome the outside barrier if she’s to win her fourth Group 1 race.

Fangirl’s rivals include, proven Group 1 weight-for-age performers Think It Over, Cascadian, Arapaho and Atishu along with Buckaroo, Just Fine, Navajo Peak and Lindermann.

It would be very fitting if Fangirl could win the race named after the ill fated Verry Elleegant both trained by Chris Waller and rode by James Mcdonald.
