Ten Owners ARE Happy!
Nov 19, 2017
Tenappy Ladies draws attention due to his unique name (you can guess the size of his ownership group!) and his size ("he is a great big horse") but also because he has good ability - as he showed with a big first up victory at Cranbourne on Saturday night.
Having his first run since mid-April the promising four-year-old began well for apprentice Stephanie Thornton who was happy for him to trail the leaders before making a run out three wide before the turn.
Kicking clear cornering, Tenappy Ladies held a good margin to the line, saluting by a soft 3/4 length with plenty in hand - although at one stage Thornton was concerned!
"We elected to take the sit on him when Lachlan King crossed in front of me but they didn't keep the pace into the race as I would've liked so I just popped off their heels three deep from the 600m."
"He got to the lead early and I didn't think there was much there, he can be quite deceiving. I was a bit worried but I think that with a bunny in the straight he would've found a lot more. He will take a lot of confidence from that."
"He is a horse we had a bit of time for last time in," Michael Kent reported, noting that "he was a bit disappointing towards the end of that campaign."
"But he had just been immature and he has had a good break - and this is a good time of year for him to be running around and going through his grades."
"He can race on the speed, he will probably get up to a mile and he is capable of winning in town - I am sure he is going to be useful."
A $125,000 Magic Millions yearling raced by ten friends including the partner of long time stable client Rick Jamieson, Tenappy Ladies is a son of globe-trotting multiple Group One winner Choisir and the city placed two times winner Golden Statue - full sister to the high class sprinter Hay List.
