VRC Oaks not on the agenda of Ethereal Stakes winner

The Anthony and Sam Freedman stable celebrated an early double when Chica Fuerte led throughout to win the Ethereal Stakes.

The trainers had been successful earlier in the day with Endanger.

Sam Freedman suggested Chica Fuerte may not go on to the VRC Oaks despite her win.

“The Oaks is probably not on the agenda at this stage. It’s a very testing 2500 metres and we think she’s probably a preparation away still,” Freedman said.

Freedman said the Wakeful Stakes would be a nice grand final for the filly, who he described as bombproof.

Chica Fuerte ($5.50) led throughout to defeat Salto Angel ($19) by 1-3/4 lengths with Star Of Eden ($31) a long head away third.
