3yo Bay Filly Tilly’s Star is by the outstanding 10 time Group 1 winning racehorse So You Think. This filly also has the breeding through the dam line. Out of a multiple stakes winning General Nediym mare Follow The Till this filly was a great buy at $36,000 from the Adelaide Magic Millions sale.
Tilly (as she is known around the stable) is trained by the King of the Highway's Matt Dunn at Murwillumbah. We purchased this filly’s knowing that she would most likely take a bit of time, her breeding could see her run sprint races but also get over ground in time. Her full sister had the one start as a 2-year-old over 900m and was beaten by the shortest of margins.
Tilly had her first Race start at the Gold Coast on 20 April 2019.
The weather gods were not in her favour on the day and the track was a Heavy 10 which certainly did not suit her at all.
After her 1st start Tilly went out for a nice spell and has come back into work in great order. Tilly has only had the 2 starts and has earned $800 in prizemoney. She is due to come back in the next couple of weeks for her 3rd prep and we are all very eager to see her hit the track.
