Plucky Elmo Holds Them Off in Nandi

Nandi Stakes
6 Furlongs Dirt Stake Purse $125.000 Filly 2 Year Olds Foaled In ON.

1st Plucky Elmo, trained by Hawaiian Shirt Guy

The punters got this spot on as this filly got home in determined fashion to land the odds. Tiring late on she held off the late challenge to win by a quarter length. In time I think this daughter of Plucky Mach may get further than this so I am impressed she is sprinting so effectively at this point in her career.

2nd Neometropolitan, trained by Barcelona Farms

Kept giving all the way to the line and proved that she is much better than her previous form suggests. This was a decent run and I expect her to fare even better over a mile.

3rd Done And Dusted, trained by Mb Stables

Ran on nicely from the trail but her style of running is always going to leave her susceptible to timing and she was caught out today and lost her unbeaten record. I wouldn’t write her off just yet though.

4th Ghostly Celt, trained by Mo Mentum Farm

Ran well enough considering her maiden status.

5th Bandits Beware, trained by Allinthegate

The difference between easy free track maiden wins and stakes races was as clear as the nose on your face here with a pretty non-descript performance.
