3/4/2018  Luvaluva rerouted to Adrian Knox

After being scratched from her intended run in the Vinery Stud Stakes (registered as Storm Queen Stakes) (Gr 1, 2000m) on Saturday because of a high white blood cell count, Luvaluva (Mastercraftsman) will instead use the Adrian Knox Stakes (Gr 3, 2000m) at Randwick on Saturday as her lead up race ahead of the ATC Australian Oaks (Gr 1, 2400m) the following Saturday. Confident Luvaluva will receive the necessary medical clearance when she gallops with Kerrin McEvoy aboard today, John Sargent said he was not concerned with the short turnaround. "The Vinery did space her nicely but you back up in Melbourne in the spring so I don't think there's any issue," Sargent said. "This is just a hiccup along the way. It's not major. She'll race then we'll tick her over."
