Queensland Oaks (Gr 1, 2400m) winner Gypsy Goddess (Tarzino) will have just one run this spring as she tackles Saturday's the $10 million Golden Eagle at Rosehill first-up, something which has always been the plan for trainer David Vandyke. “She had a very long, arduous time as a three-year-old and we just wanted to give her a nice, little preparation and the one run seemed ideal,” Vandyke told RacingHQ.
“The prize-money was a big drawcard. She is a mare that has raced very well first-up over the 1400-metres-to-mile distance. With a couple of trials under her belt, we have her nice and forward. She has strengthened up a little bit, mentally she is in a great place. Physically and mentally she is ahead of where she was at the end of last prep."
