16/11/2020 Surround Stakes aim for La Mexicana
Twilight Glow Stakes (Listed, 1400m) runner up La Mexicana (I Am Invincible) will be targeted at the Surround Stakes (Gr 1, 1400m) at Randwick next year after another promising performance. The three-year-old filly, who took out the William Crockett Stakes (Listed, 1200m) on her previous start, finished half a length behind Hindaam (Savabeel) at Sandown on Saturday as she stepped up to 1400 metres for the first time. She maintained a strong gallop throughout and boosted her record to three wins and two places from five starts. Her three triumphs have all come on ground that was rated a Soft 7 or worse and Anthony and Sam Freedman are eyeing up a potentially wet ground Surround Stakes as an ideal opportunity to notch a Group 1.
