The Ballerina – Grade I [BC]
7 Furlongs Dirt Stake Purse $500.00 Filly & Mare 3 Year Olds And Up.
1st Where To Find me, trained by Mb Stables
No surprises here. A lightly raced three year old with no graded stakes form wins a grade one. I am finding it harder and harder to review these races and could easily just copy and paste most of this stuff but here goes. Taken back early this three year old came through very nicely to score by a half length. With only 5 lifetime starts she took some big scalps here and will march on as one of the multitude that MB Stables will have to choose from for the BC.
2nd Gottahotone, trained by Team 7 Illusions
The outside speed push…..bla bla bla, shot to the lead bla bla bla, weakened late and got collared bla bla bla, beaten by the weight allowance bla bla bla.
Sorry that was unfair.
This four year old ran a cracker after being pushed forward to lead. Clear after half way she struggled inside the last furlong and was just collared in what was easily her best ever race. An improver she out run her work times and given a better draw in future may well prove to be up to this grade.
3rd Valiant Champ, trained by Mcl Stables
Beaten 7 lengths by her own age group when last tried in a grade one she ran third beaten just a length today thanks largely to the weight allowance. Running the stalk she kept on at one pace but did very well to be third and clearly has a bright future. (All the time she is a three year old).
4th Make It Known, trained by Mb Stables
Kept on nicely for fourth and is a real tough and consistent sort.
