Set Square Wins Listed Ethereal Stakes
At Caulfield in Melbourne, Darley's unbeaten multiple Gr1-winning stallion Reset (Zabeel-Assertive Lass, by Zeditave) added a black-type success when 3YO filly Set Square (Reset-Dynastar, by Zeditave) scored by 2-lengths for trainer Ciaron Maher in the $120,000 Listed Ethereal Stakes (2000m) for 3YO fillies, over fellow fillies Maastricht (Mastercraftsman-Cat Shmea, by Felix the Cat) & Imperial Lass (Tavistock-Tricia Ann, by Zabeel). This was the first stakes victory for Set Square who took her record to 2 wins and 1 placing from 3 starts for $91,400 earnings. Set Square will now head to the Gr1 VRC Oaks at Flemington on 6 November. "We've talked about paying the late entry for the Oaks should she win today and I don't think the 2500 (metres) will bother her either," trainer Ciaron Maher told TVN.
