Great Afternoon Team
WOW!! WOW!! WOW!! What happened yesterday!! We are still pinching ourselves!! Your Boom Filly literally destroyed them by 10.5 lengths (eased down at the 75m mark) in the Happy Chinese New Year 1300m Maiden. We were literally gobsmacked with the ease at which she won. Craig himself knew she would run very well based on her work Tuesday and how she has progressed since her last start, but never expected a total domination of the field.
Rarely do horses win by such a big margin. Her win so impressive and everyone that was lucky enough to be there and witness Hillary blow them away like she did were overwhelmed with emotion. Your Girl ran .2 seconds outside the Class Record on a rain affected track which again highlights just how good her performance was.
Hillary did us proud and it was so great to celebrate her victory which was well deserved. Craig has done an outstanding job and we're sure everyone will agree the time and effort that Craig has put into your girl is certainly deserving of our accolades.
We would like to say a Huge Thanks to Craig for all his efforts with Hillary and how she was presented and performed in the race. Craig has always said from the get go that she would be a late 3yo/4yo and it's starting to come to fruition. He didn't push her too hard too early which is really important with young horses and after her performances this time in we are now reaping the rewards.
We've spoken to Craig this morning and we are pleased to report that Hillary has pulled up great and licked her food tin clean, which is a terrific sign. We are just going to let the dust settle over the next few days before deciding on her next start, however we are eyeing off that 1600m race at Eagle Farm on the 23rd February.
We'd just like to say a huge Thanks to all our Owners who turned up to watch Hillary go round, we hope you guys had an awesome day. Again we apologise that we couldn't spend more time celebrating her victory with you due to having another runner at Doomben, but we look forward to the next time we all get together.
We really can't say too much more guys other than CONGRATULATIONS!!!! for yesterday and hopefully this is only the start for your girl.
