This season’s star two-year-old filly Lyre is back in work, with trainer Anthony Freedman’s son and assistant Sam revealing the rising three-year-old will target the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) in the spring.
“The Thousand Guineas is her target at this stage, if she can stay a mile,” Sam Freedman said.
“We’ll probably find out how she goes in a Prelude or something, whether she sees out 1400 metres. And if she doesn’t you’d probably look to drop back in distance to a Coolmore (Stud Stakes) or something like that.”
Lyre won three of her five starts during her juvenile season, including the Group 2 Blue Diamond Fillies Prelude (1100m) and Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m), both at Caulfield.
