A decision has yet to be made as to whether Savvy Dreams will race again this season.

The Group One performer is currently taking it easy in the wake of her third placing in the New Zealand Oaks at Trentham in just her fifth race day appearance.

"We're very happy with her and she'll be back at the track next week," said Guy Lowry, who trains the daughter of Savabeel with Grant Cullen.

While it is a longshot, they have considered a trip to Australia for Savvy Dreams.

"It's a wild thought, but we may look at Adelaide," Lowry said. "There's the Auraria Stakes, the Australasian Oaks and the SA Oaks.

"She is only a lightly-framed filly and if she shows any signs of tiredness when we get her back next week then she will go out for a good spell."

Savvy Dreams won on debut on New Year's Day before she finished fifth at Trentham and fourth at Hastings. She then booked her Oaks berth with a runner-up finish behind the subsequent classic winner Bonneval in the Gr.3 Lowland Stakes.

In the meantime, Lowry has tipped Lamborghini in the Bets Travel Waipukurau Cup as the stable's best chance on Thursday.

The Shinko King six-year-old won at Wairoa two starts back before he finished a fair third on his home track at Hastings earlier this month.

"He didn't back up as well as I had hoped," Lowry said. "I expect him to be very competitive this time."

By contrast, he is not entirely sure what to expect of stablemate and race rival Wait A Sec, who isn't the easiest horse to follow.

"He's well, but he's just been disappointing," Lowry said.
