Danny’s decision to scratch Aristerlla from last Saturday’s program and save her for today’s Maiden Hcp at Doomben, has reaped rewards with the daughter of Better Than Ready winning stylishly.
Settled just off a solid speed, she was able to peel wide and reel in the leaders, crossing the line with ears pricked and a margin to spare.
The win was exactly what Danny wanted to see.
“I didn’t want to be too aggressive with her in the blinker for the first time, so it was pleasing to see her settle off a good speed – than produce that kind of finish.”
Purchased by Danny at the 2022 March Yearling Sale for $85K, today’s winner’s cheque, and lucrative QTIS bonus prizemoney, sees connections bank a healthy $37.75K.
