Egyptian Symbol Ready To Make Mark
Meanwhile, stakes-wining and Group-placed mare Egyptian Symbol (Stratum-Our Egyptian Raine, by Desert Sun) showed she could be in for a prosperous campaign when finishing third to her stable-mate Music Magnate in a 904 metre trial at Rosehill on Monday. Trainer Bjorn Baker said the well-bred daughter of Group 1 winning sprinter Egyptian Raine would also be served by an unnamed stallion in the spring. "We will see how she goes in her next trial but there will be plenty of suitable fillies and mares races for her in the spring," Baker told Sky Sports Radio. "She will be served at some stage so we are also mindful of that. She's not too far off a million dollars in earnings so if we can get to that it would be a great result." Baker added: "At this stage I think she is going well and I think she can really be competitive in the spring." The Cressfield-owned Egyptian Symbol has hitherto won 6 of her 23 starts, including the Group 3 Nivison Stakes, for over $792,000 in earnings. Click here to watch Egyptian Symbol's trial.
