Sent out favourite on the back of an eye-catching debut performance, I’m Fearsome was travelling like the winner a long way out when breaking his maiden at Sale on Sunday.

Settling beautifully in fourth position for Jackie Beriman, the  promising three-year-old lost a bit of ground by racing greenly – drifting out wide early in the straight – but she really knuckled down to the task over the final stages.

Hitting the lead at the 150m, I’m Fearsome quickly put ground on her rivals and her winning margin was a soft 3¼ lengths.

Storming home at her Cranbourne debut a few weeks ago, I’m Fearsome has always been well regarded by the stable and Beriman was also impressed.

“She is very green and she is running on raw ability at the moment – she’s such a natural runner.”

“She began well, got into a good position and just peeled off the back of them and she was too good – she’s got a very strong sprint.”

A home-bred for the Bourke family – who also bred her dam and grandam – I’m Fearsome is by Al Samer and she is the first foal produced by the triple city winner Fearless Waters.

A daughter of the tough High Waters, Fearless Waters is a full sister to the stakes placed multiple city winner Rapid Waters.
