Dear Demi won the Group 2 Furious Stakes at Warwick Farm on Saturday September 8, 2012.
The three-year-old won the race by almost a length aged of Meidung, who finished second, and Jade Marauder, who placed in third.
It was the second spring start for the Dehere filly, who placed third in her first-up run in the Group 3 Silver Shadow Stakes behind Nechita and Meidung at the same track.
Dear Demi has now won three of her 10 race starts and has earned more than $350,000 in prize money.
Jockey James McDonald was thrilled with Dear Demi’s performance in the 2012 Furious Stakes.
”She was just brilliant today,” McDonald said.
”The harder the fight is, the more she gives. Once she got clear air, she accelerated brilliantly and she held them at bay pretty comfortably, so I’m looking forward to her next starts.”
Dear Demi will now be targeted towards the Group 1 VRC Oaks at Flemington Racecourse on November 8, 2012.
Trainer Clarry Conners has no concerns over the 2,500 metre distance, despite the three-year-old’s longest win coming over a mile.
”I’m sure she’ll get the 2500 metres,” Conners said.
”It won’t worry her.’
“She has got a long way to go but she relaxed a lot better today.
“That meant she really finished it off and you have to be happy with what she did.”
The 2012 Furious Stakes was the first Group win for Dear Demi, who placed second behind Pierro in the Group 1 Champagne Stakes at Royal Randwick Racecourse during the autumn carnival.
