La Chasseuse sprints up for summer

Talented mare La Chasseuse is being freshened with a view to enhancing her pedigree in the summer sprints.

Trainer Danny O'Brien said the Listed Christmas Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on Boxing Day and the $200,000 Group Three Standish Hcp (1200m) at Flemington on New Year's Day were options for the Lion Hunter mare.

The four-year-old hasn't raced since Soleil beat her in the last stride over 1100 metres at Flemington on November 8.

"We are freshening her up after she raced over the carnival and some of the those races around Christmas are good races that could suit her," O'Brien said.

"They don't have the depth of the autumn and spring races yet are still worth a bit of money and are a chance for a mare like her to get some black type."

A winner of four races from 12 starts, La Chasseuse won twice during the spring with her most important success The Age Plate (1100m) in 1:02.8.

She is from dual 1000-metre winner Gerber, a Palace Music mare who is a half sister to stakes winners Academe, Cheverny, Fashion News, and Vionneto.

Gerber has had five foals to race for four winners but none have been placed at stakes level.
