More Ballymore Stables hopes in Queensland

Ruby Armani and Za Za Gabor (pictured) are to join three stablemates at the Queensland Winter Carnival.

The pair are booked on a flight to Brisbane on Sunday and will team up with On The Rocks, Pinmedown and She’s A Thief, who are already in Queensland and set to represent Mike Moroney and Pam Gerard’s Ballymore Stables in black type features.

Ruby Armani, a winner of five races, and Za Za Gabor, a last-start third placegetter at Ellerslie, are to be set for the lesser stakes races.

“This is the last season for Ruby Armani and it’s a good chance to chase a bit of black-type away from the top ones,’’ Gerard said. ‘’As for Za Za Gabor, she’ll run out of town to start with and if she’s going well she may hang around for the Ipswich Cup (Listed 2150m) later on.’’

Meanwhile, Gerard reports On The Rocks, Pinemdown and She’s A Thief have settled in well in Brisbane and are on target for their first-up runs.

On The Rocks will start on Saturday week in the Gr.1 Doomben Cup (2000m) and may then contest the Gr.2 Brisbane Cup (2400m) at Eagle Farm on June 8.

Pinemdown will also make her Australian debut on May 18, in the Gr.2 The Roses (2000m) as a lead-up to the Gr.1 Queensland Oaks (2400m) at Eagle Farm on June 1, while She’s A Thief is being considered for the Eagle Farm meeting on Saturday as well as the Listed Bright Shadow Quality (1200m) the following weekend. NZ Racing Desk
