Sunshine Coast maiden winner over 1000m at her 2nd race start on June 21.
Despite a lack of fitness, a wide barrier, a heavy track and the short 1000m journey, this determined Miss was able to overcome these obstacles at only her 2nd race start!
Don’t miss the opportunity, the form is there, so get on board with the exciting Esprit Racing stable!
This lovely 3yo filly, closely related to Esprit Racing’s current flagship in Irish Constabulary was purchased in NZ in January 2017.
As such, the relationship to Shogun Lodge, Singing the Blues and Referral, and more recent NZ performers in full sister Passing Shot and Raising Shot, make this filly a very lucrative acquisition.
After taking some time to mature, she has done everything right and is now a winner! .
Watch these videos taken in late March 2018 and earlier, and see how she has developed:
