With the Sires Stakes Final for 3 year old fillies looming large on the horizon, a lot of fillies are staking a claim for inclusion in the $150,000 final at Alexandra Park on December 31st.

Last night at Alexandra Park, the Mark Jones trained Real Torque won her third race at just her seventh career start and gave notice that she will be competitive in the $22,000 Sires Stakes heat at Alexandra Park on December 11th.

Bought out of the 2014 Australasian Classic yearling sale for the princely sum of $10,000, Real Torque has plenty going for her pedigree wise with her being a half sister to four winners including the very smart Statesman 1:50.2 who has recently passed the $500,000 mark in career earnings.

The daughter of Real Desire has shown a liking for the Alexandra Park track which is a plus going forward and she is building nicely for her Sires Stakes heat.

Last night Mark Jones worked her to the front early and dictated the tempo before brushing home in 57.6 and 28.5 for a comfortable victory.

Mark Jones thought Real Torque would be hard to beat last night.

" She was a two win horse in a maiden field so she was always going to be hard to beat.

" If anything she should have won that a lot easier than she did but she had a couple of coughs during the week so she had an excuse."

" She will have one more run before the Sires Stakes heat on December 11th and then hopefully into the final."

" She is going to have to step up to be competitive but she is paid up so we are going to have a go," Mark said.

Mark Jones is no stranger to bringing horses north and getting the money and with further progression, Real Torque is more than capable of picking up some of the spoils in the Sires Stakes Series.
