Private Thoughts picks up Randwick win

A missed opportunity for a provincial win has had a silver lining for Private Thoughts (Snitzel) who has instead racked up a metropolitan victory at Randwick.

Private Thoughts was supposed to run at Gosford on Tuesday but the meeting was called off after two races because of extreme heat.

Trainer John O’Shea fortuitously kept her in the Yulong Australia Handicap (1000m) at Randwick on Wednesday and the filly delivered to give the stable the middle leg of a winning treble to start the new year from three runners.

O’Shea’s other winners on the Kensington track were Killer Instinct (Animal Kingdom) in the Bowermans Office Furniture Handicap (1800m) and Twentyfour Carat (I Am Invincible) in the Territories Yearlings Handicap (1400m).

O’Shea has steadily built his stable after spending three years with Godolphin and the results are starting to come.

“She had a trip up the highway yesterday to Gosford. She came back well and I was happy enough to run her today,” O’Shea said.

“We have been extra patient with her and she was helped by a wonderful Rachel King ride.”

Bred by Nearco Stud, Private Thoughts was purchased by Champion Thoroughbreds out of Curraghmore’s New Zealand Bloodstock May Sale draft in 2018.

Curraghmore we also represented on Wednesday by Gr.2 Barneswood Farm Eclipse Stakes runner-up Not An Option (Not A Single Doubt) at Ellerslie and Heart of Courage (Fastnet Rock) who ran second in Singapore. -AAP, Curraghmore
