Baranova on Course for the Belmont Oaks
Glamour 3-year-old filly, Baronova, is on track to contend the listed Belmont Oaks on Saturday 3rd July. Having been bred and prepared with the Oaks as her 3yo target race, Baronova will likely start favourite on the back of her impressive win in the CL3 2200m Mrs. Mac’s Handicap on Wednesday 23rd June, completing a hat-trick of wins this campaign.
Bred and raced by astute local breeder, and Milne Feeds customer, Lynward Park Stud, the Fiorente x Twinkle Toes filly has matured from a standout foal to a classy racehorse that oozes ability. With her sire, Fiorente, being a Melbourne Cup winner, Baranova has been bred to get the distance, which she covered with ease during her mid-week win.
Lynward Park manager, Troy van Heemst, says she is a true professional and a lovely horse to be around. He is pleased to be able to carry on the bloodline, and has a weanling half-sister to Baranova by More Than Ready in the paddock, who is an equally impressive type.
