ROYAL STAKES ON AGENDA FOR TOTAL RESPONSE

The New Zealand Bloodstock Royal Stakes at Ellerslie on New Year's Day has been circled for promising galloper Total Response, following her dominate three-length win in the NGONGOTAHA LANDSCAPE SUPPLIES '1560' at Rotorua last Friday.

Ridden by apprentice jockey Michael Dee, Total Response was punters' elect, and she duly responded to break maiden ranks, trouncing a small but competitive field at start number six.

Following her impressive victory, trainer Chad Ormsby reported that the Group Two Royal Stakes for three-year-old fillies has become her long range target, and he is confident that there is plenty of improvement to come from the daughter of Kheleyf to compete with the top fillies in the land over the summer.

“Total Response has always shown plenty of galloping ability and she demonstrated with her recent win that she has really switched on to the racing game” said Chad.

It was a small field on Friday but she didn't have it all her on way in the run, and she showed plenty of ticker to kick in the home straight and really dominate over the final stages”.

“I believe there is a lot of improvement in her and I think she is good enough to be set for the Group Two Royal Stakes at Ellerslie on New Year's Day” Chad added.

Total Response, who is raced by Segenhoe Thoroughbreds Australia Pty Ltd has already been tested at black-type level, and was stakes placed as a two-year-old, finishing third in the Listed Wentwood Grange Stakes at Te Rapa.

Purchased from the 2012 New Zealand Select Yearling Sale for $65,000 by Paul Moroney, Total Response is out of the Sadler’s Wells mare Incommunicado, a sister to the dam of Group Two-winning, Group One placed Irresistible Jewel and the Listed winner Diamond Trim. She is a half-sister to the dam of Group Three Winter Cup winner Art Beat and the stakes placed Smartly and Perfect Start.
