Sheridan Paine with Luvaluva

There's not long now until stable star 3 year old filly Luvuluva lines up in the Group 1 Australian Oaks at Royal Randwick on Day 2 of the Championships. The final touches put on the filly as ahead of her big task as the team look to continue on with building an impressive career.

Luvaluva (Mastercraftsman x Wansesingyee) first broke her maiden in July last year at Goulburn and showed that she was going to be something of the future. Fast forward to November 2017 and John Sargent sends his filly south to contest the G2 Wakeful Stakes (at only her 6th start), it was this win that stamped her as a very strong staying type of filly and showed her toughness. Then backing up on November 9 to line up in the G1 VRC Oaks where she finished 4th behind Pinot. Sent to Kembla to contest the G3 Kembla Classic, Kerrin McEvoy partnering her for the first time in a race settled her back in the field before bringing her to the outside and allowing the filly to dig deep and take out the race to prove she was one to watch for the Oaks. The original plan to send her to the Vinery Stud Stakes was derailed when some abnormal blood work came back with Sargent opting to rest the star filly and instead line her up in the G3 TAB Adrian Knox Stakes on Day 1 of The Championships. Lumped with 60kgs and having to give weight to some other handy horses, again McEvoy knew what he had under him and placed her perfectly at the rear of the field allowing her then clear running down the outside to pinch...
