The Jason Coyle trained Siren’s Fury gained her most important and valuable victory when winning the $200,000, Group 3 Coolmore Dark Jewel Classic (1400m) at Scone on Saturday and reinforcing a fine vein of form for the four-year-old mare.
Siren’s Fury has not missed a place in her last five races and she came to Scone off a win over 1300m in a Benchmark 85 at Hawkesbury on April 28th.
Saturday’s win was similar to the Hawkesbury race with jockey Tegan Harrison sending the mare down the inside of the field with a large gap available for them as the rest raced out in mid-field.
With 55kg Siren’s Fury was too good for the three outside, Schisim, also with 55kg under Jay Ford, and top-weight Ghisoni with 58kg under Tye Angland. The margin at the line of 1 1/2L was decisive with a neck between Schisim (Reaan) and the $3.70 favourite Ghisoni (Lonhro).
The time was 1.23.81 on the Good 4 track with the final 600m in 34.17. Siren’s Fury paid $16.00 on fixed odds and $15.80 on the tote.
“She was a couple of pairs closer than what I would have liked with a moderate tempo, but she was very solid through the line. I am really please how she has returned,” said Coyle.
“She paraded really, really well today and paraded fitter and probably raced like a better horse today.
“This was her grand final. What I do from here I do not know. If she pulls up well first with the Queensland Carnival up and running now we will have a look at it,” he said.
Siren’s Fury, by Myboycharlie out of the Unbridled’s Song mare De Chorus, was winning for the fifth time from 18 starts and with five placing she has earned connections $373,775.
