County Tale (Tale of the Cat - Day County) continues to improve. At debut on the 8th of February the 2yo filly ran 3rd at Eagle Farm for trainer Kelso Wood.The filly was purchased at the 2007 Magic Millions Yearling sales by astute bloodstock agent John Foote. John being the person who selected the great Silent Witness at the Inglis auction house.
Then today the filly was unlucky in being beaten by a nose at Caloundra. Ridden by B Pengelly, the filly showed natural improvement from her debut and she should go close to winning at her next start.
Rose of Cimmaron (Bite the Bullet-Gainesville) which was retained by Ian Smith continues to show promise with a fast finishing 2nd to Gai Waterhouse KISHKAT on the Kensington track. The 1550m was relished by the filly and her next start should see her go close to breaking her maiden city status. The filly looks to have a very bright future both on the track and in the breeding barn.
Desert Prince - Yellow and Black.
Aurantia (Desert Prince-Yellow and Black) ran a very encouraging 3rd on the Gold Coast for Gillian Heinrch. The attractive chestnut was bought out of the Melbourne Premier sales and looks to have some promise and the 3yo next start will be watched with much anticipation.
