It has been a big week for owner and breeder Rick Jamieson whose Gilgai Farm sold the sale-topping, record breaking $1.4 million I Am Invincible colt at the Inglis Melbourne Premier.
And if that wasn't enough to bring a smile to his face - a debut winner at Sandown!
A filly who has shown pace at home, Good Oh was kept safe by punters in the 1200m maiden and she was strong to the line from midfield, emerging best from a four horse battle down the straight.
"She is a really nice filly who has been showing us heaps at home," Michael Kent said, adding that she has been "just a bit exuberant."
"So we have been taking our time with her. But she will come on a lot from that win, it was her first time away from home and we expect her to improve."
Jockey Craig Williams agreed - "she is all upside," he enthused.
"She still has a lot to learn but that was a good experience for her, she raced kindly for me and it was nice to get a win in these colours."
As a $220,000 Easter graduate, Good Oh is the second most expensive yearling through a ring by the BTC Cup and Golden Rose winning Red Ransom stallion Duporth.
She is the second foal and second winner (five time winner Montague Clan the first) for the stakes winning Snitzel mare Zelsnitz.
Hailing from the prolific Fanfreluche family that produced outstanding stallions Flying Spur and Encosta de Lago amongst many stars, Zelsnitz was served last spring by Teofilo having produced a Deep Field colt in late August.
