Villa Verde Goes To Anthony Cummings

Villa Verde, a one-time favourite for the Golden Slipper, has been transferred to the Anthony Cummings stable.

Cummings said on Monday the now three-year-old filly had arrived at his Sydney stables overnight.

“Shaun (former trainer Shaun Dwyer) thought she might be better off here and the owners agreed to take his advice,” Cummings said

“She arrived here last night.

“She has had a lot of issues over time but we all know that when right she’s top-class so we’ll just see what happens,” he added.”

Villa Verde won her first two starts in Melbourne in stunning fashion and was installed the early favourite for the Golden Slipper Stakes, but a series of injuries and minor setbacks have hindered her career.

The daughter of Not A Single Doubt has won two of nine starts and $321,650 in prize-money earnings.

“I would say she’s five or six weeks away from having a trial or a jump-out and we’re expecting to get an autumn campaign out of her here in Sydney,” he added.
