New Zealand-bred mare Stylish Memphis is returning home to tackle Cambridge Raceway’s exciting new invitational race, The Race by Grins (2200m).
The five-year-old mare has been in a purple patch of form in Australia, winning four of her five starts this preparation, and finishing runner-up last start in the Gr.1 Ainsworth FFA (2400m).
She began her campaign with a victory in the Gr.3 PJ Hall FFA (1609m) before posting three consecutive wins, including the Gr.2 Sibelia Stakes (1609m) and Gr.1 Queen Elizabeth II Mile (1609m).
The Race will be Stylish Memphis’ first look at Cambridge Raceway, but punters should take solace in her strong record over the 2200m, placing in three of her five starts over the distance, including the Gr.3 Caduceus Club Of Southland/Alabar Fillies Classic, Gr.1 Caduceus Club Stakes, and Gr.1 Sires’ Stakes 3YO Fillies Championship Mobile Pace.
Caretaker trainer/driver Jack Trainor said he is excited to be returning home with the mare to contest the rich feature.
“I’m super excited to get a chance to go back home and drive in a really big race like this, especially on a mare who’s been as great to me as Stylish Memphis,” Trainor said.
