Harness Racing: Voodoo Lou eyes Ladyship Mile

Trainer Gemma Hewitt is targeting the qualifiers of the Group 1 Ladyship Mile with Voodoo Lou after her charge impressed with some solid performances in Queensland.

Voodoo Lou has shown her quality with back-to-back victories at Albion Park and now heads to New South Wales with a view to contesting the Ladyship Mile.

Sprung to life

Voodoo Lou has hit top form in recent weeks and Hewitt believes she deserves a crack at the group one feature if she can continue to shine.

The journey to the Ladyship Mile will continue when the five-year-old takes to the track at Menangle in NSW on Saturday with Hewitt's father Bernie set to take the drive.

"She really impressed me with her win last Saturday night at Albion Park, that brought her to a band three so I thought together with Dad was the best option to go back down there at this stage and tackle some of the nice mares races that are coming up," Hewitt said.

"She has gone through her mares grades quite nicely now on Saturday nights in Brisbane.

"The plan is for her to head back to Sydney and have a go at the mare’s races there at Menangle for a while, before having a break and then coming back to Brisbane for the winter carnival."

Big step up

Hewitt admits the Ladyship Mile would be a big step up for Voodoo Lou but she could have earned a chance to have a crack at the big one.

"We will see how she goes this Saturday night and whether a fortnight after that she goes to the qualifiers for the Ladyship," Hewitt added.

"It is going to be a big step up in grade but I think she is good enough to go into the qualifiers.

"With her improvement over the last two weeks, she has really hit her straps and while it is going to be a big step up, it is her time to take that chance."
