Miss Andretti ended up being scratched in the 2008 McEwen Stakes at Moonee Valley due to the slow track. Kaphero ended up taking out the race convincingly; but i question the quality of the oppostion on this occasion.
The 2008 McEwen Stakes results:
1st – Kaphero
2nd – Morgan Dollar
3rd – Lucky Secret

My previous post on the 2008 McEwen Stakes below:
The super mare Miss Andretti lines up tomorrow, for her first up run in the 2008 Moonee Valley McEwen Stakes over 1000 metres in Melbourne. Now Miss Andretti is a great mare no doubt; but her ordinary run in the Sangster last preparation has put a lot of doubt in peoples mind, hence why she is starting at the surprisingly long odds (for her) of $3.
Miss Andretti will however have plenty of backers in the McEwen Stakes, and the master trainer Lee Freedman will no doubt have her in top shape. Others to lookout for in the race are Kaphero, Lucky Secret and Here De Angels.
Is Miss Andretti a certainty tomorrow? And have any of you seen or heard, of her having any trials or gallops? Please comment if so. It’s not very often you get Miss Andretti at $3!
