Hennbodys Maiden

Jan 09, 2015

It did not take long for promising filly Hennybodys to break her maiden - and she did it in style too, the attractive chestnut at only her second start racing away to an impressive 3 1/2 length victory at Cranbourne on Friday night.

Sent out favourite on the strength of an eye-catching third at her Geelong debut on Boxing Day, the three-year-old was always travelling well for Jake Bayliss - allowing the leader to dictate before taking over turning.

And from there it was all over, Hennybodys putting on display her excellent turn of foot - getting clear despite racing a little greenly; her lack of experience showing.

"She rounded them up a bit more quickly than I wanted her to," Bayliss reported, "and once she got to the lead she had a bit of a look around."

"But when I asked for her effort she really knuckled down."

A home-bred for Dr Greg Anderson, Hennybodys is raced by him with Chris Gilham, J Pavlidis, M Camilleri, Scott Fawkner, Luke Montgomery, Todd Montgomery, C O'Malley, Zac Mcguane, Nick Gilham, P G Grey, J M Manser, K R Rogozik, E Faulkner and J Davis.

She is a daughter of multiple Gr.1 winner Henny Hughes and the winning Jeune mare Guillem.

A promising broodmare who has also produced the stable's Listed winner Pyrrolic (pictured), Guillem was served last spring by Americain having foaled a Teofilo filly in early November.

Guillem's stakes placed McNulty is also a member of the stable so this is a family that has been good to us.
